Congress Shall Make No Law…

This is why the Disinformation Governance Board bothers me so…

Let me quote her directly: (pdf alert)

The commission would harmonize definitions of concepts such as terrorist or extremist content, hate speech, abuse, and disinformation across the Internet and ensure platforms are adhering to those definitions; define and require that platforms obtain informed and meaningful consent to their terms of service, serving as an awareness building mechanism about data privacy issues and the limits of speech on the platforms; serve as a neutral appellate body for users who feel their content has been unjustly removed; and conduct public audits of algorithms, account takedowns, and data stewardship. Most importantly, however, it would have the convening power to bridge the gap between industry, government, and academia, ensuring that these sectors no longer operate in isolation, or worse, counter to shared goals.

In the absence of the political will necessary to create a whole-of-society response to online disinformation, Congress must empower a professional, non-partisan commission to lead this charge, convene disparate stakeholders, and establish a shared understanding of the threat.

Let that sink in. She wants to control, by deputizing corporations, what people can and cannot say.

To that crowd, the Weimar era was a GOOD time.
As Jeff Jarvis (whoever he is) twatted out about Elon Man Bad:
Today on Twitter feels like the last evening in a Berlin nightclub at the twilight of Weimar Germany.

Think what you want, but fascists & muslimes & demons only understand brute force. Nothing else will stop them, they cannot be reasoned with, you cannot talk them out of their EVIL. As shown by history, EVIL WILL NOT STOP, it has to be put down.
