In 2018, we have seen an unprecedented crackdown on anti-establishment voices on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. When they were first created, these social media platforms were essentially neutral, and they really did greatly contribute to the marketplace of ideas. But now there is a tremendous effort to censor voices that are a threat to the establishment, and in recent months we have witnessed the greatest purge of conservative voices in the history of the internet.
Anything that does not conform to the agenda of the elite is being labeled as “hate speech,” and countless anti-establishment voices have had social media accounts either “shadow banned” or terminated completely. Needless to say, this could dramatically affect the outcome of the elections in November.
