Everyone is OK with censoring people they disagree with. Just wait until it's your opinion they disagree with and you get censored.
I understand what you're trying to say, but what you said is just wrong. It's 100% censorship, but done by entities other than government. Sure, it's legal, but it's not necessarily good for our republic.
Intentions do matter, but there's a reason even that bastion of conservatism, the ACLU, is worried about what's going on. If what is taking place regarding suppression of voices doesn't cause a little panic in your heart (even if met by a measure of relief) you aren't really that concerned with the intent of the first amendment. Many people seem ecstatic to paint everything as black and white when it suits their political leanings, but the world is far more grey.
Things could be going lord of the flies out there and some of your would be cheering it as a victory. This comment was edited on Jan 11, 2021, 15:14.
