Although I personally don’t use Facebook or other social networks, billions of people do, and totally excluding all of our content from that important distribution channel eventually produced a 20% drop in our regular daily traffic, a serious blow that set us back many months.
We would not tolerate a shipping firm, railroad, telephone company, or public meeting space that behaved in this way, so why do we tolerate it from social media? Antitrust law generally addresses such issues out of a need for competition, and here we need a competition of ideas.
In my observation, whenever the Right gains ground, the social media companies as if on a signal from Google start banning Right-wing accounts. This results in the loss of voices in the discussion, effectively limiting competition for Leftist ideas from non-Leftist sources.
Since Facebook has long banned Amerika, it makes sense to reiterate that in my view, the future of conservatives on the internet is to go private: forums, mailing lists, IRC/chat, and blogs. Let the Left have their echo chamber, which will in turn doom it as more people feel unwelcome there.
