Not so far from reality. In China they already operate on a social credit ranking system.
To low a score? Then you don't get to use the public transportation. And i think hotels are added to that list.
Very creepy!!
China Has Started Ranking citizens
Here is what it would look like in the west:

Yay censorship!

Keep cheering on the corporate canceling of your rights because someone you don't like got the boot.

Wait until it's you.


ATS is a prime example of what happens if you don't intervine in time.
This site was once a conspiracy site with all kind of strange news, now it's everything about politics and right vs. left.
Can you really blame Facebook for not wanting to be associated with far right propaganda?
They're only doing so they don't lose members.
You know, kinda what happened to ATS after Trump won the GOP nomination.
People don't want to shift through pile of garbage every day.
This has nothing to do with censorship, it's a business decision.
But I get it. Victim mentality on the internet blossoms these days, so throwing a couple of buzzwords such as censorship and free speech guarantees crap load of stars

The authoritarians using censorship as a tool to control the narrative is a conspiracy.

Yes, let's let corporations control who gets to engage in the new digital public square.

Keep making excuses for corporate fascism disguised as free market.

Social media is a new medium that can spread hatred throughout the internet like a wildfire. Though I'm still a supporter of the right for one's to express their opinion on social media and other outlets --- Facebook clearly has the right to deny such hate groups from spreading hate through their website.

Does a bank have the right to not allow you to have an account if they don't like your thinking?

Does a hotel have the right to cancel your reservations if you believe is something they don't like?

Does a diner have the right to ban folks who may be a specific skin tone from their lunch counters?

Anyone who doesn't want globalism is a neo-nazi now.
I can't wait for the label to lose meaning and groups honestly criticized for their views.
I'm not holding my breath for the MSM to be impartial however.

You support censorship, be it corporate or otherwise.

QED.

The same could be said of the Left and their use of racial politics as well.
I guess it's only legitimate for one side to do that.

You are absolutely right - I have learned to hate social media.

Tired response.

*yawn*

No one is yelling fire in a crowded theatre.

But people are being censored for their beliefs.

And you appear to defend that action.

What racial politics of the far left?

I don't see any --- All I see is evidence of racist propaganda spewed-out from far right wing hate groups.

"Facebook 'bans' Ukrainian far-right group over 'hate speech' -- but getting rid of it isn't easy."

NWO Facebook bans anti-NWO people that are still filled with common sense. hmmmmmm

Look - let FaceStalk follow its destined path down into the Lake of Fire. They are programmed to dig their own graves to hell.

Ukraine will eventually return (merge) with old Mother Russia and form one of the 10 horns of the NWO Beast. Let them do it, they are destined to do it.

I support a free and independent Ukraine. And I have a special dislike for Putin & Company, vying for imperialistic techniques that might shackle Eastern Europe over such endeavors.

You are right, but this is corporate censorship, it’s new!

And censorship is never good.


My local church news letter won't publish porn.

Is that censorship bad?

It is the free market. Facebook don't want associated with groups like that because it could damage them commercially.

Did it used to publish porn then stopped because of a disagreement in ideology?

If so, then you might have a point.
