B is For Burrowing Deep on Censorship and Other BS
Episode 2 finds me rambling very broadly on the topic of censorship, where I try to put into context the recent actions of social media companies deleting accounts in the wake of the January 6th Storming of the Capitol event in Washington D.C..
I speak about how such purges are aimed at outsiders, not just people on one side of the political spectrum or the other, and why this concerns me.
While I recognize there are limits to free speech, I’m ultimately someone who feels we must err on the side of free speech and this episode explains why.
That said, over a period of several days I went from posting on my Facebook account that I didn’t support Twitter’s decision to delete President Trump’s account to feeling it was the right thing to do.
In other words, as we all give this very important issue our attention, I think we must evolve and constantly question whether our perspective is correct and update it when we feel it isn’t.
In addition, you’ll get my usual silly digressions because season 2 of the podcast is, after all, all about me rambling next to a river
