Adults with imaginary friends are stupid

From the seat of a Fleet Manager, Freight Broker, Dispatcher to responsibility of $1B in annualized revenue and to an army of amazingly talented people; I fully appreciate the challenges and opportunities in the world of logistics & holistic supply chain. It excites me! With the team, engineering and implementing efficient processes enabled by positive working relationships has lent itself to a track record of successes; from covering that impossible load to orchestrating comprehensive Supply Chain Strategies on behalf of industry leaders. When work is done, I am likely riding bikes or playing on the water with my wonderful wife and children, off-roading, or playing my guitar.

Gab the Free Speech Absolutist Site Abandoned

Drop file here to send
Gab the free speech absolutist site, which has attracted a lot of people whose views were deemed too extreme for other major platforms, but also some reasonably moderate right of center political people, has been de-platformed by many of its service providers and now has gone totally offline(probably temporarily). This happened after it was discovered the Antisemitic Pittsburg shooter had made many anti-Semitic posts on Gab. Was it appropriate for the service providers to abandon Gab. Is Gab at all to blame?

It's the correct idea for laws to be very minimalistic in constraining free speech, and allow society, individuals and companies, as part of the free market to set their own standards of what they will accept. Some are claiming in this case their appears to be that there is some degree of double standard, other social platforms have similar issues and nothing has been done against them.

But that isn't necessarily the issue in this case either, as Gab does on principle have much more lax rules. They allow hateful racist speech on principle, whereas other platforms, do not in principle allow this, but just things sneak past their enforcement of rules.

So the real fundamental problem that this has uncovered is that as all the major platforms seem to have left-leaning bias, the moderate right feels unwelcome and persecuted there. The moderate right has been marginalised and takes a home with the extreme right. This isn't good for anyone. The extreme right, espousing truly morally abhorrent ideas should be marginalised. To create a context where the moderate right is marginalised to the same degree, which is the reality now is a receipe for a disaster. the moderate right deserves an equal palce at the table in civil discussion. And some of the extreme left should be marginalised too, they shouldn;t get a pass. Civil discourse must happen, left and right have to co-exist, there isn't a reasonable alternative.
