Respect Each Other’s Differences
There is so much going on in the world right now, but one thing that has been all over the main stream and social media is Big Tech and censorship.
I have a problem when I see and hear on the news, or social media sites, how Big Tech has decided to ban or suspend accounts simply for what they deem is not appropriate speech and/or it goes against their own community standards.
I am sorry but that makes me unhappy. What I do notice about Big Tech, social media, and the mainstream media, is that they are censoring those who have different opinions that do not meet the current narrative that is being spread. I find it highly hypocritical that only certain voices are being censored while others get to keep thriving. How is that fair?
I am not trying to make this argument political. Unfortunately, it is most definitely becoming that way. When I see Big tech attacking companies such as Paler, which clearly share a more conservative view. I also notice it on social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, who seem to selectively choose who gets to have a voice and who does not.
This is really upsetting because we all have a voice, and no one should be allowed to censor us because they do not agree with our views. However, it is happening—social media sites allow others, who write such terrible things, to mock others and slander them, because of their conservative views.
This is just sad and embarrassing. We have the first amendment and our Constitution and the rights that our forefathers fought so hard to give us.
Whatever your opinion on the matter is I respect it. I am merely expressing my own views. Everyone should be able to express their opinions without being subjected to bans from Big Tech, such as Parler endured.
You all do not have to like what they have to say, no one is forcing anyone. But we all have a right to voice our opinion freely. We live in the greatest country in the world and that is America. There is a saying, “if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.”
I love how social media has offered many new ways of communicating with family, friends, and co-workers, etc. But I do not like how they control only a certain group of people and their views, simply because it does not fit the narrative.
We all should be able to respect one another even if we do not always see eye to eye. I do not like to have to write about these issues, but I am not going to pretend that it is okay for Big Tech or the mainstream media to try to silence our freedom of speech. To be able to move forward, we all should be working together, and the only way that works is by allowing a difference of opinions to continue and having an open dialogue with those we disagree with.
