It seems that the recent shift toward censorship of ideas has taken its toll in many places on the internet including Facebook and Youtube.
I don't see how this can foster the exchange of ideas when banning people becomes the standard course of action.
Atheism is such a taboo topic and yet we are now banning people for nothing?
For even mentioning thought police on the forum I was banned on the Atheist Republic Facebook Group.
Unless you are inciting violence or hatred towards a group I don't see how we can ever progress by silencing, censoring and banning.
The fear is that Facebook will ban the group due to its policy guidelines. It is sad that we have to cow tow to such policies, but I guess we have to play the game in the world that we live in.
Well I hope I can continue to post to this forum, unless I get banned for posting this. Like communists in a soviet era country, purged for thinking and expressing discontent with the powers that be.
Is thought policing ever ok? Where do you draw the line for free expression? Do feelings matter more than ideas?
