Oh, so you are in favor of shutting down all army related sites? Well, many pacifist would probably agree ..
And governemnts openly advertise for it. On websites, (even in schools). And private enthusiasts maintain forums where army people discuss about the current wars and how to better kill the current enemy. Etc. Etc.
Not necessarily. The purpose of armies is to win wars. If it was possible to win wars without killing people they wouldn't kill people. In fact they are trying to minimize collateral damage. It's different with white supremacists. They have a direct interest in killing people. There is no collateral damage for them, which is also why they do mass shootings and the army usually doesn't.
Some really do want to kill people, but then again would you deny that the army or even the police doesn't get their fair share of these people?
I don't know the answer, but I know that indiscriminate restrictions on freedom of speech aren't the answer.
It saddens me that this paraphrased prose I'm about to write even has to exist.
First they came for the Nazis, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Nazi.
Then they came for the racists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a racist.
Then they came for the bigots, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a bigot.
Then they came for the rich, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not rich.
Then they came for the religious, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not religious.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
I don't, so I value it very much. There were attrocities in my countries in the name of common sense on the other hand.
Even if intuitive, censorship isn't an answer to anything.
Regardless of the reason people visit these places, the moment they get external pressure, their believes get vindicated. We see a large surge in issues with these communities since we got on our little censorship trip. It is just plainly the wrong move to make.
There have been Nazis on the internet since shortly after its inception. But random people going out and shooting crowds in this frequency is a new phenomenon.
Historically censorship has always been applied for the right reasons of course.
That's a fairly simple metric. So you're saying we can finally shut down Twitter?
Everyone here wants that perfect idealistic and pure world, unfortunately that's now the world we are given. Problem is many here want to just treat the world we have as the idealistic model world as if there is no difference.
