  1. Since the 2016 election I've been watching the alt-Right on YouTube. I believe Matt Christiansen is more libertarian/conservative than far Right statist, so he fell off my radar in the last year or so. But he recently made waves for saying the Ukraine whistleblower's name on his moderately successful show, Beauty and the Beta, and being censored by YouTube. The hosts of Revenge of the Cis, a far Right talk show, made fun of Christiansen for complaining about censorship when he didn't defend certain alt-Right figures when YouTube started censoring their speech years ago. The hosts, Royce Lopez
  2. You might be aware of Vox Media's problem with Steven Crowder. They are trying to convince YouTube to crack down on Crowder and everyone else who engages in "hate speech," particularly against "marginalized groups." Vox claims to support free speech, but by that they mean speech that doesn't include "slurs" or "harassment" of certain people. They connect Crowder's slurs of Maza to his fans harassing Maza. I suppose they consider Crowder to be a Manson-like cult leader who's responsible for the actions of his followers. This might be true, if Crowder told his audience to harm or harass Maza, b
  3. The current debate over free speech on the Internet offers us a prime example of how different strands of collectivists play ping-pong with each other. It begins with a serve of the ball. For example, companies like Twitter or Facebook or Google convince people that their social media sites are "communities." They say this in their TOS and use it to justify forming "community standards" of behavior. And when prominent people start suffering from demonetization or deplatforming because of their speech, the users send a sharp volley back to the server. They accept the notion of "social media as
  4. There has been another clash with the Speech Police in Canada over the use of illegal pronouns. First it was psychologist Jordan Peterson who became famous for defending free speech against Bill C-16. Now it's grad student Lindsay Shepherd, who merely played a TV debate involving Peterson for her grammar class. Read her story here. Shepherd, a TA at Wilfrid Laurier University, wanted to expose her students to the ongoing debate over using "they" as a singular pronoun, referring to one person only. And for this sin she was summoned to the newly formed Diversity Inquisition and reprimanded
  5. I'm curious as to this upcoming protest, which seems to at least have a somewhat coherent message: Truck Drivers For the Constitution, and their website but I'm even more interested in how it relates to the law, and the actions of two companies, Facebook and Twitter. *Their Facebook about page(which was recently shutdown by Facebook, and then had to be reopened) reads: "The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in
