Just shy of half of American’s want censorship, in the form of the government restricting “misinformation” on social media. The 1st Amendment doesn’t talk about good speech, knowledgeable information, facts or fiction, but all speech. Especially when we get into political speech, or subjective answers, where one side calls the other a liar, but now the government serves as the lie detector and punisher of the determined liar? In a time where we’ve had more competing truths regarding Covid from Fauci in the past 18 months than most accomplished authors, I’m not sure this is good.
The Pew Research Center found that support for censorship is increasing.
