Elon Musk noted that “free speech is essential to a functioning democracy,” and then asked a poll question:
More than two million people responded with over 70 percent saying the Twitter platform does not “adhere to the principle” of free speech.
One of the reasons our democracy is not functioning, is simply because the worldview of the platform control agents is in the minority. There are more of us than them, they just control the communication platforms, and they do so in an effort to block people from seeing they are in the majority.
The reason Big Tech controls speech, censors speech, manipulates speech and blocks user engagement, is to give the illusion that their worldview is held by the majority, it isn’t. Their Big Tech created world, their Metaverse, is a tenuous Potemkin village construct.
