Please wake me up the next time the US will try to spread democracy and free speech in a 3rd world country.

Was this the US doing this?  I thought it was companies deciding who they want to serve.  Kind of like cake shops.  Aren't we all for this when it comes to cake shops?

Man you're really gullible...

How much is (F500 including MS + Apple + Facebook + Google )'s share in the overall collected taxes?

How many of your respected politicians were elected thanks to their money?

How many of these politicians will vote for war to make the US great again?

The US is no more a republic of people. It's a federation of multinational companies with an army and a diplomatic representation.

Today Twitter, citing "hate speech", shut down the accounts of Scott Horton the director of antiwar.com, Peter Van Buren a former State Department employee and author, and Dan McAdams the director of the Ron Paul Institute.

Van Buren's has been completely deleted but the other two you can still read old tweets, so presumably those are time limited bans.

Sorry Random Lurker, I still don't see the difference.

All the politician were elected thanks to money.  Just different sources.  You don't think a lot of money went to electing anti LGBT candidates?  You think because of the amount of money it makes it different? 

Sorry, I see companies deciding who they want to serve, just larger scale.

I agree with this completely, but the US government didn't order the take down of Alex Jones.  If it did, I would agree with your free speech argument.

Just like the gay couple need to go to another shop to get their wedding cake, Alex needs to find another web site.

I say the money from F500 makes politicians owe more to these companies than to those who have elected them.

And yes, elections need money. But when money is used to manipulate people's will and get someone elected based on how much the corporations invested in him/her, the whole system is rigged and corporations own the state.

Do you believe that in a perfect, free society (not saying one exists), a company should be able to set their own terms of service?  Do you see the difference between a company doing this and a government?

Call me stupid, but I can't see what is the relation between free speech and companies making their own TOS?

Maybe I misinterpreted your original post but isn't that what you're stating?

>Please wake me up the next time the US will try to spread democracy and free speech in a 3rd world country.

A company kicked a person off their site for breaking TOS.  You seem to relate it to US, free speech and democracy.

I don't see how your statement about the US spreading democracy and free speech has anything to do with Alex Jones.

I voluntarily confused these companies with the US as a state.

I am claiming the US is now a state that is heavily influenced by these corporations. If the US tries to promote free speech and democracy, it is actually doing that on the behalf of those who are influencing it. In an ideal state, citizens are that source of influence. But in modern day US state, the corporations are that influence. So if these corporations are banning free speech, how could it be that they are trying to spread democracy through the US state (which is their puppet and their facade.)

My comment was sarcastic and implied all that I explained above.

Used to be embarrassed for revealing my identity as just a fucking retarded alliances seeking poor Hungarian speaking guy.

But now I got a role and I like roles.
If I'm lucky I'll get to play me: Transilvanian guy. If not (and they never pay you coze you're lucky) I'll have to be Moldavian or Russian.

It's all North Korea.
I've seen it before, can't help but make it pass and guard our rears.

Cheers, nevertheless. Those who survive.

Certain large social media companies that own the vast majority of traffic of their type should be regulated and treated like public utilities and should be forced to permit all legal content. Because they effectively own that kind of traffic, they are a monopoly. Youtube should work exactly like the goddamned phone company - a common carrier, not a regulator.

It's interesting how divided the country is on this. The libtards see Youtube, et al following a higher moral good. The civil libertarians such as Styx are as close to triggered as I've seen them.

Styx always disagrees by saying "in my opinion" very casually while drinking his tea, but yesterday I started seeing him absolutely seething and shaking with rage and deep hatred towards the libtards.

Everything points to Styx. Talk about a trademark!

Yeah, he was hemorrhaging a lot of rage.

This year, the Supreme Court ruled that companies do not have to take all customers...

Pie or cake dude,

Companies may or may not have to take all customers.

However you are a piece of shit because SCOTUS did not rule that at ALL with this ruling.

You are trying to post your leftist crapfest here by dramatically and totally intentionally misstating a SCOTUS precedent.
