Orwell’s World

"BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany said on Tuesday that Facebook, Google and Twitter have agreed to delete hate speech from their website within 24 hours, a new step in the fight against rising online racism following the refugee crisis."

Seems like truth is not now acceptable! Social media is now a government tool to control the truth!!!

I partly agree with you here.

I believe that there should be no limit to what a person can think, write or say. It's unreasonable to stop any individual writing something just because it offends or even disgusts me. As it happens, I am less offended by extreme views than by stupidity (though they often go together).

However this freedom only applies when the writer is (like yourself) honest and open about their own identity.

If you wish to remain anonymous then you should be polite.
