The Digital Declaration of Independence and Social Media Strike - Today Larry Sanger comes back to discuss his Digital Declaration of Independence. (you can read and sign the declaration here) Like many of us Larry is fed up with social media and tech companies taking advantage of their users.
Vague terms and condition agreements with secretive arbitration practices, embarrassingly contradictory definitions of "hate speech" and "violence"...exploitive use of our content, and privacy...all of these things has led Larry to write his declaration.
The declaration describes the abuses, callous behavior and ethically corrupt behavior in the style of Jefferson over 2 hundred and 2 score years ago. Pete A Turner and Larry talk about the declaration, free speech and the social media strike he's asking us to commit to. We're in.
