I wrote some more things about free speech. They’re probably not as interesting as the other things I wrote, but one of them is a foolproof solution to the anxieties of digital discourse that simultaneously allows for violent rhetoric while minimising its influence. Unfortunately, it also makes creating marketing funnels very difficult, if not impossible, so you’ll just have to put up with social media corporations exercising editorial control instead.
Read it, or don’t, here.
Incidentally, the recent YouTube reforms seem relatively successful. Both revolutionary and completely inoffensive left wing and right wing videos (if you think only right wing stuff is being excised, you’re living in a filter bubble), and apolitical content continues to be arbitrarily demonitised or removed, so nothing has changed there—but I have noticed fewer mask-off, power-level revealing videos being recommended.
Still plenty of trojan horses and useful idiots, which are far more likely to be able to alter public discourse and influence real world politics anyway, so everybody wins! :)
