Realizing large mainstream platforms have no free speech and literally use internet is dead AI’s to control what people say, through keywords and manipulation they’re able to shape what you perceive to be true. Many people realize this as they move away from larger platforms and harness what made the old internet so great. Places to hang out and talk without the threat of being banned or manipulated by some internet AI.
The problem however is many of these smaller platforms have gone the same direction as they try and slice out a piece of the main stream money pie. Whether selling out so they can place google adsense ads, affiliate marketing, or monetizing their audience in some other “family friendly” way. They jump through the hoops to be apart of the same main stream they claim to be separate from while at the same time claiming free speech and no spyware.
This is why the internet will never return to it its old style, not because of large corporations or money hungry investors… but because of people like you and me. Allowing ourselves to be involved in communities that clearly only have one interest and it’s obviously not free speech or creativity. As they plaster their google adsense data harvesting codes, their shilly affiliate links, or ban and delete anyone that doesn’t meet the “work friendly” environment. (Which really just means advertiser friendly).
What’s even worse is some of these places claim they are all about free speech yet their guilty of banning people they don’t like, guilty of shadow banning users that don’t agree with the main stream propaganda, guilty of hiding content from users they deem conspiracy theorists. It’s weak and pathetic because they even call themselves free speech locations, they claim to support and fight for free speech while they lie and manipulate behind the scenes. Free speech has become just a keyword, a buzzword to attract weak minded fools back into the world wide WEB.
At least main stream platforms are honest about the fact they will ban you for “medical misinformation”. At least they acknowledge the fact they are not going to be a free speech platform.. unlike these smaller platforms and forums that claim free speech while they do all kinds of shady shit to get a piece of the cash cake or manipulate their user base with bots and fake accounts. I’ve been banned from several “free speech” forums just because they didn’t like me or my opinions.
The reality is most people only like free speech when they are surrounded by equal thinking echo chambers. The minute you speak out against the hive mentality of any smaller platform you’re turned into a scapegoat and used to teach a lesson to other members that conformity and same think are the only option. The reason we will never achieve any sort of free speech online is based on the sole fact that you’ve sold out yourself, willing to negotiate and settle for shill platforms. Making up lame low IQ excuses when it’s someone else because deep down you don’t have the balls to stand up for real free speech and creativity. You’ve become just another online bot in the transhumanist internet is dead AI.
