Censorship and free speech
I thought that censorship was past but no!!! Censorship is for today. We are not free to say what we want.
Before internet (before 2000) censorship was much more light. But now the scope of what we can express is more and more narrow.
I am candid. I think that we can share ideas opinion and think freely. But if you share information that someone disagree you hurt him and he can block you.
On day I receive a message on the Fediverse
Usualy when I receive such message it is conter productive. I am very sensitive with blocking myself or baning. It hurts me so much. That I cry out much more louder. It is like we reject myself without earing.
Now I should show you the post.
Kirche.social as the name means is a social church. Church means christian. Kirche social will ban me because I ask for prayer.
If they consider GAB as theire enemy. Read what Jesus said about enemies in Mathiew 5:44
43“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. 44But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!
Gab is not federated anymore then I was thinking that it was nice to share this message. Andrew just ask for our prayer. It is a rememder. Of course it is also kind of advertising message. I could cut the upgrade things.
Gab is very controversial site. Lot of people don’t like it. They say they are Nazi, Faschist, racists, homophobes, sexists and I could add many bad words islamophobes (no this is a french word).
I am not the best wise people. I have my own weekness, I am sure past injuries from my childhood is maybe not totaly cured. Sometimes I need to express myself. I try my best to be understood. Sometimes it does not work. Sometimes it is even worst. More I try less I am understood.
That is why more we try to say do not say this do not say that. That when we block me I try to repeat more.
Why blocking is not the solution. If you block me of even ban me. I can created other account. You will not detect quickly it is me. You hurt me and the problem is not solved.
What is the solution. Dialog and empathy. If you try to understand me I will be much more ready to understand you. Probably what I say hurt you. Then if I understand that. It will be much more easy to be carefull.
Censorship will transform in mutual respect.
Censorship is very violent and it does not solve the problem. We need to understand each other.
One thought on “Censorship and free speech”
In these days I am seeing that it is the people/platforms that say things people don’t want to hear that are censored; it has nothing to do with right or wrong, truth or lies. The main thing is that we continue to speak (dialog) the truth in love (empathy). Excellent post, one of your best IMHO.
