There are only 2 kinds of people who don't want free speech:
A fascist doesn't want free speech because that would expose his ideology as a rabid, violent, barbaric, terror-inducing ideology that is based on societal violence. (You know the Nazis, WW2 Italy and WW2 Japan for the most part)
A communist doesn't want free speech, because speech in communism is democratic. So if 51% of the commune decides that Joe is too outspoken, he will get shut down, in best case scenario, in worst case he will be sent to a Gulag for torture.
So these are the 2 extreme sides of the spectrum, although they
If you weren't aware yet, Reddit has yet to include Steemit as an approved domain thus all direct Steemit submissions are immediately removed as spam by default. It's clearly obvious why this is the case - Steemit is a direct competitor to Reddit and they're scared of being made the next Digg!
Regardless of Reddit's motivations behind automatic removal of Steemit content, the /r/Gridcoin subreddit now auto-approves Steemit content! Please keep such posts related to BOINC/Distributed-Computing/Gridcoin though.
If you are a moderator of a sub-reddit consider implementing the following automoderator script:
It's that easy, two lines and you're done!
Hi there Steem People!
I'm an anarcho-capitalist kinda guy. I have a PhD and teach at a university, which actually speaks most clearly to the level of my mind control. It took me a good decade (and counting!) to unlearn everything that I had got wrong. My awakening and re-education began with James Corbett
G. Edward Griffin
Even though I have a post-graduate education in literature, I had never read some of the giants of freedom, like Lysander Spooner
and Frederic Bastiat
and didn't know its enemies either, people like Jeremy Bantham
After watching a YouTube video about their censorship policies. I'm more then ever in believing that Steemit need to provide a decentralized none censored place to host members pictures and videos.
This is the video. Just watch it and replace her words of Christianity with any words your being censored from.

Back in December Zerohedge wrote about the efforts of Facebook to combat the spread of
fake news over social media with the introduction of a filter intended to flag 'fake' content so that users wouldn't haven't to go through the hassle of critically analyzing information on their own. As we noted at the time, it was a genius plan, except for one small issue:

From our prior post :
The first problem, however, immediately emerges because as NBC notes,legitimate news outlets won't be able to be flagged, which then begs the question who or what is consideredlegitimate news outlets, does it include the likes of NYTs and the WaPos, which during the runup to the election declared on a daily basis, that Trump h
This week is the 100th anniversary of President Woodrow Wilson’s speech to Congress seeking a declaration of war against Germany. Many people celebrate this centenary of America’s emergence as a world power. But, when the Trump administration is bombing or rattling sabers at half a dozen nations while many Democrats clamor to fight Russia, it is worth reviewing World War One’s high hopes and dire results.

A lot of people have been affected by YouTube's recent demonetization moves. The ascribed reasons for it are myriad but they boil down to two basic ones, overt censorship and a money grab.
They main theory is that some advertisers expressed concern to YouTube that their ads were showing up on
objectionable channels (insert your definition of objectionable here) at least in part because YouTube's algorithm for assigning ads to videos was clumsy at best. And that YouTube then overreacted and used a shotgun where a flyswatter might have been more appropriate, removing ads (AKA monetization) from a great swath of channels.
Since many people's bottom lines were hit, there has been a firestorm of protest. In many (but not all) cases, the most vociferous complaints have come from channels in the conservative, libertarian, and/or alt-media space.
I can understand about la
Several commentors noticed that the comments under one of David Seaman's YouTube videos about Hillary Clinton and John Podesta has been heavily censored by YouTube.
This video is marked for censorship, as is David Seaman's (and many others ) entire channel. The comment thread in question is the top comment by rating, from The Seeker, stating
Slick Willy was the cocaine kingpin of Arkansas as governor. Google bill clinton mena arkansas
I monitored the thread closely in an effort to prove the censorship and have documented several censored comments below - including screenshots of my own censored comments. The screen capture below shows what is displayed to me when logged in and using Chrome browser versus the heavily redacted public thread, which I gained access to by using the Open Source Brave Browser, which blocks the Google Forever Cookie.
This provides proof that Google is shadow censoring the YouTube comments:
If you have ever studied Gridcoin in more detail, you have surely noticed this large spike in Gridcoin price and trade volume which has occurred almost exactly one year ago:
Poloniex price chart. During this spike, Gridcoin price reached an all time high value of 0.00009299 BTC. Market cap reached $10M.
Number of Google searches per day for term 'Gridcoin'. Big spike during the same period.
This event is usually referred to as "the Reddit night" among the Gridcoin community.
So what happe
You may or may not like the views of PJW. He is a selfproclaimed polemicist. Polemic is exaggerated and pointed talk about certain topics.
I myself, like that kind of talk very much, because it gives me new points of view, media doesn´t provide. If these are shut down, like assumed in the video, there will be a huge gap to fill for steemit (or any other third party app based on the blockchain). PFW has 850k followers. PewDiePie has 54 million followers. If these guys among the others mentioned in the video are cut off from the advertising pool of youtube, they will have to find new ways of monetarising their content.
Aren´t there any devs out there being able to create a working addon to steemit and provide video hosting to channel all those viewers and followers to steemit?

PsychedSubstance is a youtube channel I have followed for some time. This guy makes videos for harm reduction purposes around psychedelic substances and has many informative and personal exprience videos regarding psychedelic substances. He also has as another channel to discuss other topics like existential philosophies like if we are in a simulation, overcoming social anxiety, and other not so substance related topics.
He has been facing resistance with youtube monetization and now youtube is engaging in shadow banning like actions against him. This hurts his financial income from the channel to continue making his content and I would like to see him remain able to continue this. I am pretty sure the Steemit community would appreciate his content and he would gain extra audience through Steemit as well as income. It would also be great if we can help him get set up with LBRY.io once that is launched since it is perfect for uncensored media content.

Probably it is time to leave YouTube! | Möglicherweise wird es Zeit, YouTube zu verlassen!

The newest video by Paul Joseph Watson sadly suggests this consequence to be taken because of new censorship measures to be fully implemented on YouTube . | Das neueste Video von Paul Joseph Watson von Infowars legt diese Konsequenz nahe, aufgrund neuer Zensurmassnahmen, die bei YouTube in naher Zukunft angewendet werden sollen .
Paul Joseph Watson describes, that there is a
restricted mode on Youtube which locks out practically any YouTube Channels which are not specialised in parroting politically incorrect content. The restricted mode can be set off if you have an account and are adult. Paul Joseph Watson is a journalist like the others contributing to Infowars. I personally do not like Alex Jones very much, both his character and contents. All the alternative channels mentioned by Paul Joseph Watson ar
I have a diverse selection of friends and family. Many of these people are firmly stuck in the worldview that citizens elect their 'rulers', that any suggestion of collusion behind the scenes on a mass scale is crazy, and that the world is largely the way the mainstream media explains it to us.
Broaching the topic of things such as False Flags, Rothschild Zionism, chemtrails, 9/11, etc. can be a largely fruitless endeavor with people. What I've learned is if a person does not want to consider the possibilities, they will vilify you for doing so. It's not just that they disagree with the ideas or concepts you are presenting, it's that they are completely opposed to discussing them in the first place.
And if you discuss anything conspiracy related, inevitably you are asked about the moon landings, or perhaps referred to being a follower of this guy:

I HATE Google so much for giving my entire profile information to Hillary Clinton without my permission. I HATE ERIC SCHMIDT'S GOOGLE MORE THAN ANY OTHER COMPANY ON EARTH!
