Just found out Tusky and Fedilab are now censoring instances that the developers don't like.. To those developers... Who made you king that you get to decide what others visit? You have no right to control other people´s lives. Just because something offends you, that doesn't give you the right to tell us what we can't do.. I don't like SJW´s, but I do not try to silence them.. @tusky and @fedilab developers.... pull your heads out of your posteriors. #leavethefediversefree

Free speech is our ability to go to the town square stand on a soapbox and give our opinion.

Free speech is also our ability to set up a newspaper or web site, app or program, and use it to promote our point of view, or not to promote points of view which are odious to us and associated with war crimes, slavery, and genocide.

You don't get to use our free speech soapbox to promote your fascist point of view.

@hhardy01 @d4klutz Popper’s Paradox We can answer these points using the minority rule. Yes, an intolerant minority can control and destroy democracy. Actually, as we saw, it will eventually destroy our world.

So, we need to be more than intolerant with some intolerant minorities. It is not permissible to use “American values” or “Western principles” in treating intolerant Salafism (which denies other peoples’ right to have their own religion). The West is currently in the process of committing suicide. https://quitter.im/url/459965

@js290 @hhardy01 I agree with you partially. The reason for the downfall of western culture is not because we don't censor or lack of tolerance, but lack of holding people accountable for their actions. Allowing people to blame their actions on how others treated them vs their personal choices, allows this breakdown as now all actions become allowable if the action is caused as a reaction to a severe enough cause.

Intolerance should not be of an individual, but based on a person´s actions.

@hhardy01 Actually, you CAN use a soapbox to promote any view you want. However, using the views to damage or hurt another person is not acceptable (yelling fire in a theater). The real issue is who gets to decide what I get to gain access to. Only I should decide that. What I do with that is my responsibility, not anyone else's. I pay the consequences of my actions, not the devs. To follow your thought, MANBLA cannot push their heinous man/child love agenda. Yet they do with freedom of speech.
