Poland has spoken Big Tech will be fined 13.5 Million Per Case For Censoring.
I am amazed that we are not learning from those who have been there:

quote:


“Poland spent 45 years under Communism…It taught us the value of free speech”

“Speaking to Fox News, the architect of the law, Deputy Polish Justice Minister Sebastian Kaleta, said social media companies have for too long been targeting conservatives, Christianity, and traditional values by banning them and removing posts and the Polish government is saying “enough!”

We see that when Big Tech decides to remove content for political purposes, it’s mostly content which praises traditional values or praises conservatism,” he said, “and it is deleted under their ‘hate speech policy’ when it has no legal right to do so.”

After identifying the problem, it is the financially costly solution that might end up making this so effective:

Under the new legislation, any platform that bans a user would face fines of $13.5 million unless the content is also illegal under Polish law. An arbitration committee would be set up to oversee disputes.

Tech companies had reached a point where they were deciding what was legal and what was not –, but that was not their role, Kaleta says.

“Freedom of speech is not something that anonymous moderators working for private companies should decide,” he said. “Instead, that is for the national body; duly elected officials and all industries, car, phones, finance — were unregulated till they grew too large — the same should happen with Big Tech.”

He added that the removal of former U.S. President Donald Trump from social media platforms was just another example of Big Tech overreach and set a dangerous precedent.

“It’s very disturbing because if Big Tech sees themselves as an organization empowered enough to ban a sitting president of the U.S., it sends a message to the world –that we can ban anyone, whenever we want,” he added.

I wonder what the real estate market there is like.

Google is going to remove Poland from their Google maps platform and replace it with a larger Baltic Sea.

Tigerdroppings is about to block any Polish IP's. And so will every other platform on the internet.

Go Poland! I traveled to Poland in 2017 for a WW2 history tour, and one of my tour guides was very adamant telling me that the Polish people hate Russia, Communism, and Putin.

Just saying that no website is going to put themselves at risk of multimillion dollar fines because they need to kill an account breaking their rules like posting porn. Even Parler wouldn't take accounts from Poland if there were any chance that became law.

I bet Poland thinks we are a pretty weak country now. (We are for the most part)

Sad we have come to this.

Eastern Europe isn’t keen about giving up their freedom. They’ve suffered their entire existence, led by Russian Tsars, German Emperors, Nazis, and Communists.

I read a memoir of British officer who briefly worked behind German lines in Poland. He writes that the Poles hated the Germans, but they were terrified of the Soviets.

Doesn’t Poland have pretty strict “hate speech” laws?

I don’t think freedom is the right word. Poland isn’t preserving freedom here. They’re preserving their culture.
