The Supreme Court has finally begun entertaining the idea of hearing a case on big tech censorship. For many this is a relief, after being disenfranchised, and stripped of their voices by the internet’s overlords
“The U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether or not to hear a case brought by Laura Loomer and Freedom Watch against Google, Apple, Facebook, and Twitter, alleging that the Masters of the Universe have been discriminating on the basis of viewpoint and coordinating with each other in an anticompetitive manner.”
This case originates from 2018, but is now being appealed to the Supreme Court. If it is heard, it will be the first case of its kind ever heard in the Supreme Court.
Some Supreme Court justices like Clarence Thomas, have already made it known that they believe protections afforded to big tech companies are too broad.
Unfortunately these legal protections are abused and distorted in ways that were not originally intended.
A driving purpose for section 230 of the communications decency act was to allow “true diversity of political discourse” but clearly the protections have been warped to do the opposite.
