This man is Public Enemy 1.
We don’t need a set of rules to govern speech on the internet! We already have Constitution & Bill of Rights!!! E.g.:
You may not dehumanize anyone based on membership in an identifiable group, as this speech can lead to offline harm.
Dehumanization: Language that treats others as less than human. Dehumanization can occur when others are denied of human qualities (animalistic dehumanization) or when others are denied of human nature (mechanistic dehumanization). Examples can include comparing groups to animals and viruses (animalistic), or reducing groups to their genitalia (mechanistic).
Identifiable group: Any group of people that can be distinguished by their shared characteristics such as their race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, serious disease, occupation, political beliefs, location, or social practices.
The definitions offered by twitter are so capacious as to please any politician looking to quell ‘hate speech’. As a polemicist who engages in satire ,my writing will be the first to go!
Media Oligarchs do not own the internet, nor should ‘they’ define Corporate Political Welfare, in deference to the National Security State, as in our interest, and somehow our responsibility as users of their media platforms. The search for bourgeois political respectability, and allegiance to the ‘values’ of that National Security State, are the imperatives that explain the reasons for this set of usable political definitions. We did not surrender our right to free speech because we use their platforms. Like radio and television, the FCC should have long ago made it clear that Free Speech is the sine qua non of this newest electronic media platform. But of course this Commission has been politicized and therefore utterly toothless!
