Perhaps no media paragraph more perfectly encapsulates the issues around the Twitter debate than this one from New York Times writer Shira Ovide:
…”The 2016 U.S. presidential election and the Brexit vote that same year gave Silicon Valley executives, U.S. elected officials and the public a peek into what can go wrong when social media companies opt not to wade too deeply into what people say on their sites.”… (link)
In essence, that would be the quiet part said out loud and matter-of-factly. If people are allowed freedom of communication, they end up doing things without our approval.
That paragraph perfectly encapsulates the reason why so many media and leftists are having mental breakdowns.
Elon Musk has the audacity to purchase one, just one, social media platform with the intent to allow Americans the freedom to speak to each other freely, without limit and control. That is the expressed risk the Democrats, media and leftists in every institution are enraged about.
As Fox News highlighted, “several Twitter employees expressed serious concerns and fear over Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of the company including a prominent worry that Musk would undo censorship mechanisms they had worked to implement over the years.” It’s all about control. We are living in a cyber version of Poland circa early 1980’s.
The solidarity movement results in millions of Polish citizens taking to the streets, looking around and suddenly realizing there are more of us than them. That is what the collective left is now desperate to avoid, and they will do anything to stop people from seeing the scope of the control effort they have deployed in order to carry out their agenda. Those are the stakes at play.
During yesterday’s phone call between Twitter executives and employees at the company, the leaders within the company talked about the issues at hand. A leaked copy a short segment of the discussion was made available by Project Veritas today. WATCH:
All of this collective apoplexy and anxiety is a reflection of fear. The need for control is a reaction to deep internal fear.
Notice they keep using the words “safety”, as if being exposed to alternate perspectives is something that threatens safety.
Elon Musk is correct, “the extreme antibody reaction from those who fear free speech says it all.”
I can only imagine what “years of censorship mechanisms” means inside the technology systems created by the Twitter regulators.
This gets more interesting by the day….
