The same day that he signed the 'Christchurch Call to Action', Justin Trudeau announced that the Canadian government was about to unveil something called the 'Digital Charter'. He promised that the government would begin policing the Internet for both "hate speech" and "misinformation", stating that Canadians expect the government to protect them from false information and "bullying" online.
It is pretty clear what they intend to do. They intend to eviscerate the free Internet, the greatest tool for sharing knowledge ever devised by man, and replace it with what essentially amounts to Television 2.0; a Safe Space walled garden playpen for the lobotomized citizens of the emerging globalist dystopia, populated only with cursed memes and government vetted Truth™.
Proposed Censorship Strategies
Initially, the way they intend to accomplish this was not readily apparent. Trudeau was sparse on details, besides alluding to backroom deals being made with tech oligarchs such as Mark Zuckerberg, and promising to manifest "meaningful financial consequences" for online platforms that refuse to (or cannot) comply with censorship requests. But since then, a Parliamentary committee called the 'Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights' has held some meetings in Parliament to discuss the various options they have at their disposal to eradicate "online hate".
They are probably going to pursue censorship through two primary means: Removal or blocking of online content, and fines and potentially criminal charges for Canadian citizens found to be spreading "misinformation" and/or "hate".
да, кстати, кто бы мог подумать, что бесконтрольный ввоз иммигрантов продолжится не только разгулом полицейщины, но и затыканием ртов всем недовольным происходящим? А вот пожалуйста. Канада следует Новой Зеландии и Британии. Австралия отстает пока, но не намного.
Кстати, Россия в этом деле опережает всех, причем очень конкретно.
«Имейте в виду, мы ни одного комментария просто так не оставляем. Никому не позволим оскорблять личность там, — обращается Кадыров к авторам сообщений в интернете. — Уберите свои комментарии, мы все читаем, целая группа над этим работает. У нас адаты, обычаи никто не отменял. Поэтому для меня убить, [если] убьете меня, это не так страшно, а если вы оскорбляете мою кровь, род, мою семью, мой народ, это для меня важнее всего. Поэтому за языком следите, за пальцами следите, а то мы поломаем пальцы, вырвем язык вам. Ни один провоцирующий комментарий или видеопубликацию не оставим».
Героический Джордан Петерсон запустил таки новый проект свободы слова, виртуальный монастырь среди моря людских страстей
An upcoming free speech platform promises to provide users the best features of other social media, but without the censorship.
The subscription based “anti-censorship” platform “Thinkspot” is being created by popular psychologist Dr. Jordan B. Peterson. It’s being marketed as a free speech alternative to payment processors like Patreon in that it will “monetize creators” and as provide a social media alternative to platforms like Facebook and YouTube.
Peterson discussed Thinkspot with podcaster Joe Rogan on June 9, emphasizing a radically pro-free speech Terms of Service. He described that freedom as the “central” aspect saying, “once you're on our platform we won't take you down unless we’re ordered to by a US court of law.”
That will be a profound contrast to platforms that ban users for “misgendering” people who identify as trans, or for tweeting “learn to code” at fired journalists.
The only other major rule on comments he mentioned was that they need to be thoughtful. Rather than suggesting that some opinions are “off limits,” Peterson said they will have a minimum required length so one has to put thought into what they write.
“If minimum comment length is 50 words, you’re gonna have to put a little thought into it,” Peterson said. “Even if you’re being a troll, you’ll be a quasi-witty troll.”
All comments on the website will have a voting feature “and if your ratio of upvotes to downvotes falls below 50/50 then your comments will be hidden, people will still be able to see them, if they click, but you'll disappear.” He later added a caveat saying that was still being mulled over and that “We don't know if 50/50 is right.”
The platform, with its subscription-based service, will also directly subsidize content creators.
Peterson said that a handful of major free speech proponents including Dave Rubin, Michael Shermer are on board to be beta testers for Thinkspot.
Peterson’s daughter Mikhaila spoke encouraged podcast listeners to sign up as testers for the platform in its current beta phase, before the intended August 2019 launch.
“We’re in desperate need for a platform that doesn’t arbitrarily decide to throw people off because of random crowd mentality,” she said.
On Twitter, Peterson also called for beta testers on June 10, “Per the Joe Rogan podcast this week, I'm backing a new platform called thinkspot, currently in Beta. Get on the waitlist here, exciting announcements coming very soon.
