Lady-proofing public life by Brendan O'Neill
'Here’s a truth about censorship we too often forget: it is more insulting to the people it is designed to protect than it is to the people it is designed to shut down. -- It dehumanises the people it “saves” – from offence, from filth, from dangerous ideas – more than it does the people it silences. -- If anything, the people gagged by censorship – those whose books are burnt or whose beliefs are branded unutterable – are being paid a backhanded compliment. -- They’re being told they’re too edgy for the era they find themselves in. Society can’t cope with their threat. It’s scared of them. Their ideas or art or publications are just too big or menacing for our small minds. -- But the supposed beneficiaries of censorship, the people whose eyes and ears are covered by the censor, whose souls are protected from moral pollution, are always demeaned. -- They’re reduced to the level of children. They’re implicitly told they can’t think for themselves and thus need others – brighter, better others – to think for them. There is no worse insult in the 21st-century West than to have something censored on your behalf. -- And so it is with The Red Pill, the documentary about the men’s rights movement that is outraging Oz feminists. Women of Australia should be up in arms – not over the film, but over the efforts to censor it. Over the feminist agitation to shut the movie down in order to guard women from its allegedly noxious social fumes. -- There’s nothing in this film even nearly as offensive as the idea that women must be protected from ideas and imagery.'

Fighting Neo-Nazis and the Future of Free Expression
"every time a company throws a vile neo-Nazi site off the Net, thousands of less visible decisions are made by companies with little oversight or transparency. Precedents being set now can shift the justice of those removals. Here’s what companies and individuals should watch for in these troubling times."

-- Jeremy Malcolm, Cindy Cohn, and Danny O'Brien

A running list of companies that no longer want the Daily Stormer’s business
Although Facebook hasn't released a statement on Charlottesville, a company representative told The Post that it took down an event page for the rally over the weekend, after threats of violence and links to hate groups became clear.

Since then, the representative said, Facebook has blocked people from sharing a Daily Stormer article attacking the dead protester, unless the person who shares it explicitly condemns it in the same post.
Limited as that move was, it seemed remarkable to some.
“The Verge is unaware of any previous moderation effort in which individual employees have assessed every shared caption for a given URL,” the tech outlet wrote.

State support has a downside for China’s tech titans
"[T]he fact that the Beijing government blocks most major US internet companies from its enormous market stops Chinese enterprises from being truly competitive," Richard Liu, founder and chief executive of Chinese e-commerce site JD.com tells the Financial Times: "It’s like people — if you are put into a big sterile box on the day you are born and not exposed to any microbes or diseases and only given purified air and water then when you come out you will get sick very soon. You will die very soon out in nature." - Article by Jamil Anderlini, Financial Times
