Setting the rightful respect for free markets and capitalism aside, many conservatives are beginning to understand that they’ve been wrong about one thing: censorship doesn’t necessarily come from the government.
Look, we all want capitalism to work — and it’s going to. Free market competition remains the one and only way to ensure economies grow, consumer products improve, and our standards of living increase. Every other alternative that’s been tried has failed miserably.
But, there’s a difference between allowing business owners compete for who has the best products, and allowing a few tech giants in Silicon Valley to essentially re-write the First Amendment.
Conservative voices — both content creators and users alike — are routinely silenced by platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. And let’s not kid ourselves — this isn’t going to stop with Alex Jones, who was recently kicked off of Facebook. YouTube executives have even hinted at banning Ben Shapiro, who is by every account as much of a mainstream conservative as it gets.
This isn’t about infringing upon our economic freedoms — it’s about ensuring there even is a conservative movement ten years from now.
Even the White House is considering its options on how to deal with this problem.
