  1. RE: “The thing about social media censorship is it almost always only goes one way.”

    I don’t see that in Jacobin’s article, unless the “one way” is alignment with political powers that be. In fact the Jacobin writer makes much the same point as FPM’s Daniel Greenfield in a story posted here yesterday:

    “Facebook, Instagram, and its younger cousins are not places where a new consensus can emerge by discussing serious issues. It’s where the proles are expected to listen to whatever they are told what to think and to do by their betters.”
