It’s no real loss to me.
I don’t like Facebook. I haven’t really used it in years:
“Facebook has said it will block “praise, support and representation of white nationalism and separatism” on Facebook and Instagram from next week.
The social media giant also pledged to improve its ability to identify and block material from terrorist groups.
Facebook users searching for offending terms will be directed to a charity which combats far-right extremism.
The social network has come under pressure after a man livestreamed an attack on two mosques in New Zealand.
Facebook had previously allowed some white nationalist content it did not view as racist – including permission for users to call for the creation of white ethno-states. …”
Moral of the story?
1.) Violent mass shootings aren’t going to trigger the “collapse” of civilization.
2.) They will be used to intensify censorship, gun control and political correctness.
3.) This will only reduce your footprint on social media.
4.) Conservatism is absolutely useless when it comes to resisting censorship and political correctness. This is due to free market ideology.
5.) As a result, we are stuck in a spiraling feedback loop of fanaticism as repression leads to violence, which leads to more repression, which leads to more violence, etc.
6.) Political correctness is a diabolical ideology that pits different groups against each other and inevitably leads to discord and violent conflict. Unfortunately, our leaders are too drunk on irrationality, identity politics and political correctness to reverse course.
7.) The solution is more tax cuts and deregulation, right?
Note: This world … it sucks.
