Should we regulate free speech online in a way that we don’t in the real world?

What is illegal offline should be illegal online” has been the sensible mantra of prime ministers and secretaries of state for a number of years. The aim has been to toughen regulation on social media, in particular over threatening language, stalking and aggressive behaviour.

Now, however, many people are going a step further. Damian Green, the former cabinet office minister, said recently that online media, such as Facebook and the like, deserves more regulation, not less. Last week, his fellow cabinet veteran William Hague proposed making political advertising illegal online, even though it would presumably remain acceptable in print.

The culture, media and sport select committee has also said that government or some arm’s length body should audit the man-made algorithms that dictate how articles appear on Facebook and elsewhere, while presumably not auditing the thought-processes of newspaper editors.

One thought on “Should we regulate free speech online in a way that we don’t in the real world?

  1. The people of the world are sick and tired of being set against each other being told what to say what to do what to think by powerful criminals who want us divided so they can continue to rape, steal from and exploit us.

    Currently the gravest threat to the world is the corrupt mainstream media MSM who has been taken over by a powerful cabal. They are told what to say and what to transmit we are fed their lies what they want us to know and hear. They have been lying to us for decades, twisted our minds and led us down a path of darkness. The evidence is all around you.

    The only way we can defeat this evil is by removing their power and turning them off and stop buying the crap newspapers that they fill with lies.They are named the “Mockingbird Media” after a criminal operation of the same name to infiltrate journalism and take control of the narratives.
