Fandango has posed another of his thought-provoking question;
“Do you believe that social media sites should be able to censor what people post on their sites and ban content creators from posting? Or do you consider such actions to be a violation of freedom of speech, which is guaranteed as a right in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution?”
I am strongly of the opinion that people should be allowed to say their say, but in the limits of the media protocols. If I sign up with a platform which has certain conditions and rules, that I agree to follow, I should do that to the best of my knowledge and with clear conscience.Writing material which violates these terms should be avoided at all times and people who do so, should be ready for their content to be removed or banned from that platform.
Freedom of speech;
The right to freedom of speech allows individuals to express themselves without government interference or regulation.
Since the social media platform/ sites are not run by the government, they can impose censorship according to their terms and conditions.
The fact that people are free to say something which is factually true, doesn’t give them the license to spread hate through statements which probably aren’t true. And spreading strife and hatred are a crime against humanity.
