facebook goes Chomsky

Labels: »
it is bizarre that some of these facebook employees see no correlation between a page for some hate group and what happened this week in Washington at the Holocaust Museum and no correlation between the employees of facebook, their opinions and how facebook follows their own terms

Holocaust denial has not disqualified Abbas from getting Obama’s first phone call from the White House. Why then must Von Brunn stay in prison, instead of being invited to the Oval Office? It couldn’t be because Von Brunn hates Jews or tried to kill them. Von Brunn is an amateur compared to Abbas. the slippery slope is slippery only because it’s mud slide wants to be contained by haters. It all leads right to the top

this won’t get traffic. if it did facebook would follow their own policy and ban hate speech. if any of this caught the attention of advertisers, facebook would be out of business.

‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean -neither more nor less.’ ‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’ ‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master—that’s all.’ — Lewis Carroll

if the person who quoted Chomsky had read anything about Chomsky they would know there isn’t anything systematic about language according to the axioms of Chomsky. Language doesn’t have meaning through systematic method. you can’t prove or disprove semiotics. it is simply understood. to be so obtuse and dry as to pretend that meaning is a mathematical science because you quote Chomsky is an immediate sign of bias. I have asked facebook to be true to free speech for years now. Now I am humbly asking them to at least to be socially responsible with their supposed “discretion”. the fact that they are neither and are in conflict with their own terms is a good argument for AntiTrust laws to be used. I disagree with the expansive mindset of facebook, but the argument is that they are supposedly creating a better environment for communication. enabling hate speech is in conflict with their own arguments. I happen to disagree with their claim that they can censor, but now it seems even their censorship is random and hate based. we would love for facebook to have free speech! what we have instead is populism. facebook caters to the tyranny of the mob. that isn’t freedom. What has happened is Holocaust denial has become hip enough that facebook is allowing it. In the same respect nudity has become culturally taboo in a majority of circles and therefor facebook censors it. In the same respect Jewish Conservative groups go down all the time. for crying out loud! how is this free speech? if facebook wants to enact a policy of free speech I would support it, but if they are not then it is the users interest to influence facebook into responsible behavior.
