When controversy comes the Internet news and social networks supposedly want debates. But do they really?
When you respond on some social networks in a negative way they ask you to confirm if you want to send it or not. And warns you that you may be block. Are these social networks becoming the new neighborhood bullies. If you don’t go their way you are bad and labeled. What happened to expressing your opinion? And the news sites shows the worse response and the best response. If you have a negative response it is labeled the worse. If you are pro the best. Who are they to dictate what is good and what is bad? Are they not suppose to show both sides without favoritism?
Do they believe in freedom as long as it is their freedom? The right of opinion is only good when it is the same as theirs.
People wake up. You are being herded into two cells, pro and con. The cons will be censored. And the pros the accepted norm. Are we any different than the Chinese or Iran? Where is the freedom of thought? And the freedom of expression of those thoughts? Also the Four Freedoms that FDR expressed. Where are they? I bet few knows of them. Sadly it is not the government but the people who are doing these repressions via Internet.
So I ask the heads of these social networks and news do you want to hear the truth? Or do you want to hear what you want to hear? When you ask for opinions be ready to hear the truth. If you don’t like that then don’t ask for them.
