What is surprising is that this had not happened before. A Chinese social network taking over the US? that makes no sense. This will happen again and again and China will choose shutting freedom of speech every time.
I thought those on the left were now embracing censorship, no? Isn’t their go to line “it’s a private company they can do what they like, if you don’t like it go make your own company”.
30 years ago my position “free speech is good”, same 20 years ago, and 10 and today. The left, not so much depends on who is saying what and about whom, then you need to change your position on an hour by hour basis to twist your logic into some pretzel like fashion.
