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
