Which Internet do you want?

I would like to be part of the Internet where people say what they think, no matter how different, or offensive it may be to some people. Why? I care what people think.

I find I can learn from lots of points of views, even ones I don't support, although having ideas I object to repeated over and over ad nauseam is not what I have in mind.

The actual Internet I use is becoming a monoculture, where only certain points of view are tolerated. More and more so every year. This totally sucks.

If you force people to stop expressing ideas you don't like, that doesn't mean they go away. And if you can't hear what other people think, you can never change your mind. And you're probably wrong about a few things too, as we all are.
