Explain the difference between Spotify not streaming Nazi music vs Walmart not selling Nazi music.

What is the difference?


Walmart didn't sell "Nazi music" one second, then censor it for political reasons.

My definitions being the ones that one can find in a dictionary. Yes, those.

Not carrying a product is not censorship. The artists involved have not been prevented from making their music, and their fans have not been prevented from hearing it.

And please, don't start casting about the sophistry tag when you yourself just blatantly used a fallacious example. Pedant.


Yes the same definitions that run contrary to your specious arguments. You do not not know what censorship is. The fact you had to run to the dictionary after your argument only illustrates the point. Sophist.



Wait... him running to a dictionary to explain how your understanding of a word is incorrect, is tantamount to him not understanding that word?

Remind me to never play a board game with you. By your rationale, reaching for the rule book automatically makes me wrong.

The definition of the word proved that my understanding of it is correct. Maybe you should go read the rule book twice.

The fact that you run to a dictionary and a thesaurus both any time you try to engage anybody illustrates my other point, too.

Sorry that you have such trouble with the words though. I had hoped that by posting the definitions for you, you'd be able to figure it out a little easier but it seems that was a loss.

I'll let you have your usual, and predictable, "last word" now. I know that makes you feel better.

What was Spotify doing with illegal content and material in the first place?

Thank you. And don't apologize. I'll give you your predictable little escape from the argument, which seems to be the going rate for whenever you're in a losing battle. Run away; I know it makes you feel better.

Spotify have not prohibited anyone from listening to any kind of music. They have simply stopped enabling people to listen to certain music (and by extension stopped paying royalties for that music)

That is not censorship.

Can't believe you'd need reminding of that...

And the Ayatollah simply stopped enabling people to read certain books. They can go get it elsewhere.

What? No. How does the definition of censorship apply to any private company choosing what it does or does not carry?

Any logical person would be bringing wheelbarrows of dictionaries to dump on you.

Nope not even remotely the same thing.

You really need the difference between a private company and the leader of a country explained?

You're kidding, right?

Censorship is suppression or prohibition. A private business choosing which products they carry is neither of those things.

The question isn't who they are, it is whether they are censoring or not. Do I really need to explain this?

But the distinction is critical. One can choose not to do something. The other can choose to prevent people doing something.

What?


Censorship of music refers to the practice of editing of musical works for various reasons, stemming from a wide variety of motivations, including moral, political, or religious reasons. Censorship can range from the complete government-enforced legal prohibition of a musical work, to private, voluntary removal of content when a musical work appears in a certain context.

Why? Explain why what I said is not true. Explain how a private business choosing what they offer is "suppression" or "prohibition".

Unless you want to just keep calling people stupid. If so, have at it. I'm not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree which is why this should be all the more embarrassing for you to not understand.
