In order to truly be aware of the mission of a social networking site, one needs to understand that privacy and loyalty to the user needs to be first and foremost. Filtering and censorship that is done by a few sites for the purpose of promoting a specific and biased agenda characterized by a certain political stance such as Marxism, or any another rogue ideology, places far reaching limits upon freedoms, nor, is it consistent with the Bill of Rights and becomes a strike at the very heart of America’s constitutional fabric and republic. With that said, America’s core values such as love and liberty that was endowed upon its people was no accident and it came with a cost, and to this day, that mission still requires that its people continue to seek that higher ground and strive for even more justice for all. However. even so, there is another mission that has showed its hand and has already become a clear and present danger, not only to America but also to the rest of the world. Case in point. Facebook’s recent blocking of a post of the Declaration of Independence as “hate speech” is quite over the top by any sense of the word. Suppressing viewpoints and important historical events is clearly an infringement of the First Amendment with regard to freedom of speech and of the press.

I may add that the Washington Times on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 brought to the reader’s attention that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged that Silicon Valley is an “extremely left-leaning place” but said he tries to make sure his firm doesn’t “have bias in the work that we do.” So there was no bias in blocking the recent post of the Declaration of Independence, right? This is called “doublespeak” to the max. I find it very hard to even imagine that a social network site would go to these extremes, but then again when I was in my last year of college I was astounded that our Sociology Professor assigned the book Karl Marx. But that wasn’t my first encounter with far left professors during my 4 year college stint in the great late state of California.social networks

Truly, we must then ask the question, why has Karl Marx been lifted to sainthood after it is discovered that every nation that has ever practiced his secular ideology, lords its tyrannical misgivings over its people, whereas the Statue of Liberty represents a far different approach to the fabric of America’s society. In any case, whether it be college indoctrination, Silicon Valley social networking, government propaganda, the deep state, the MSM and the rest, it is very important in this day and age to form personal values, beliefs, and a character that reflects a spirit of truth, peace, love, patience, self control, and a desire to go the extra mile when one is asked to go a few more.

On this note I am reminded of the words of John F. Kennedy that would have been spoken in his prepared speech if he had not been shot in Dallas, Texas on that fateful day. “We in this country, in this generation, are by destiny, rather than choice, the watchmen on the walls of world freedom. We ask, therefore, that we may be worthy of our power, and responsibility, that we may exercise our strength, with wisdom and restraint, and that we may achieve in our time and for all time the ancient vision of peace on earth, good will towards men. That must always be our goal, and the righteousness of our cause must always underlie our strength. For as was written long ago, “Except the Lord keep the city, , the watchmen waketh but in vain.”
