Josh Sigurdson reports on the recent de-platforming of Infowars’ Alex Jones among countless others from both sides of the spectrum by YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Spotify and others.
It has long been said that the answer to bad speech is more speech. However, there are a few companies who have garnered full control over the narrative. People for generations regurgitated every single point the mainstream media threw at them, so they somewhat decentralized their information by going to YouTube, Facebook and other places. Well, now YouTube, owned by Google which has gotten billion in government subsidies and can no longer be considered a private corporation has full control over information. A government monopoly on information. With that, they are committing a modern day book burning. They are wiping creators out.
First they demonetized and it didn’t work, so next they deplatform as if to say no one can stop them because they don’t need public demand, they have the government.
This is an incredibly slippery slope. Something that people on both side of the political spectum/circle as well as outside of it agree is deeply concerning.
But there are solutions to this madness.
Steemit and DTube are far more decentralized social medias and streaming video alternatives. They are on the blockchain and people actually make cryptocurrency by the upvote of their video.
While people are getting booted from YouTube for simply REPORTING on the Alex Jones termination, as the tech bubble gets ready to burst, as a revolution of decentralization takes hold, we only have one way to go, up. And we will.
Stay tuned for more from WAM!
