Think laterally about what taking down a site that has people researching about a conspiracy does.
They postulated and laid out the idea that the research of these conspiracy theories radicalizes people. So the outcry is to remove the place where
these people congregate.
If this is really what they want, to shut down a place of congregation, they will get a reaction they don't want. If you were working on something
and trying to shine a light on it, then it gets shut down, all it does is validate that there are actors opposed to what you were trying to shine a
light on coming out. From that perspective all it does is ads credibility to what you were working on, even if it was not credible in the first
So now you have hundreds, if not thousands of people who's work appears to be validated by these actions. These people then have nowhere to go but
either deeper into the recesses and back alleys OR down main street and taking overtly public action.
They were obviously there because they felt or knew something was off in the first place, and now where they could converse with others that are like
minded is gone. You are forcing them into the public. Now, if you wanted to keep it from going public shutting it down is the last thing you really
want to do, and it would be better to just let it keep going in the "dark corners" of the internet where no one else is bothered. Shutting it down
now forces people out. It is the now internet famous Streisand effect. ( en.wikipedia.org...
These people have to be so expletive stupid to go to that degree. The only reasons to do such a thing would be out of sheer terror of what it had
become or plain stupidity. In giving them the benefit of the doubt, they are afraid, very very afraid.
Then take into account that these supposedly radicalized people are such because they are social outcasts. They just took away the only social
connections they had no matter how tenuous they are. The only result of that is pushing those near the edge due to isolation over the edge
completely. If they really wanted to stop violence, taking away the one place those outcasts had to vent away is again the last thing you want to do
to prevent violence. None of these actions make sense unless they themselves are only acting reflexively out of fear. of being found out. That is
why they are being labeled terrorists and not nutjobs no matter what their proclivities actually are.
It is sickening, and the actions being taken are the exact opposite of what they should be if they actually cared about people.
