This is a battle that apparently will not have an end in the medium or long term, or at least I think so. And the simple reason why I believe this is why more and more people, governments and the "owners" of social networks believe they are the masters of the absolute truth and there is nothing further from reality and dangerous than that.
For example, a couple of weeks ago we saw how one of these social networks, Twitter, permanently closed Donald Trump's account due to a series of comments that, according to Twitter and therefore the people behind this network, considered offensive and inciting violence. Was it wrong for a social network to silence anyone for speaking their mind? - If I say I'm going to burn down your house and they go tomorrow and burn it down, would they have to close my account? - Twitter, Facebook, etc., because they are companies with rules and regulations, do they have the power to silence someone?...
Clearly these are questions that the answers will depend on the way of thinking and seeing the world of each person and that is exactly the essence of what freedom of expression is, that every opinion, whatever it may be, is respected; Whether you share it or not is quite another matter.
- Que hacer para evitar la censura y todos sus males.
What to do to avoid censorship and all its evils?
Basically censorship is fought by being a rebel and fighting for what you believe in and want to say. The thing is that every time it seems that there are fewer spaces to express oneself freely since most of them are highly centralized places where power rests with one or more people, freedom of expression being a delusion.
One of the evils that is generated from censorship is the so-called SELF-CENSORSHIP, which is nothing more than the fear that appears in people when they want to give an opinion or publish some type of content and for this reason they stop expressing themselves as a voice more that is being indirectly silenced.
I always put @theycallmedan as an example since he was suspended, banned, censored, whatever you want to call him from twitter for no reason and logic and yet he has never stopped expressing himself and his voice continues to sound strong like everyone else's. we make life in this world of Web 3.0. But how?...
This is where the magic of [hive.blog] (https://hive.blog/) - @leofinance comes in and everything that comes with belonging to this incredible decentralized world where only YOU are the owner of your accounts and where no one can come to close or censor you, that is, the #Hive universe is perfect for exercising freedom of expression without any barriers and fences.
The future of social networks should be seen in the mirror of what #hive, #LEO and all that it represents, I have no doubt about that. Because in addition to having full freedom over our content, we are financially rewarded for publishing it.
Today I honestly do not know how this whole issue of censorship is going to end, I think that the more centralization exist, the less freedom there will be; but what if I know is the place where I must be to avoid the final silence. This 2021 Im convinced that it will be the year where people will understand the great power that there is in Web 3.0 and the importance that in social networks we are ALL owners capable of creating a solid community of free-thinking people.
For today is all, I hope you liked it and thank you for reading.
¡A hug to all and see you in the next one!
