Microsoft blocks Bing from showing image results for Tiananmen ‘tank man’

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/jun/04/microsoft-bing-tiananmen-tank-man-results

For the software developers out there: let's remember that #Microsoft owns #github so if you rely on some code hosted on github then this is your problem as well. Don't think that you are not involved. We are all involved.

#Microsoft and other big tech companies have too much power in the world. Work towards reducing their power and empower individuals instead.

Hustler founder and free-speech activist Larry Flynt dies aged 78


Larry Flynt, founder of Hustler magazine and self-proclaimed "smut peddler who cares", has died aged 78.

Flynt died at his home in Los Angeles on Wednesday morning, his brother Jimmy Flynt confirmed to Washington Post. His career spanned more than five decades, with Hustler's launch in 1974 propelling him to fame. However it also attracted controversy, and was the subject of repeated law suits - as well as making Flynt the subject of an assassination attempt. He was shot in 1978 while standing outside a courthouse in Georgia, during a trial for obscenity. The shooting left Flynt a paraplegic. He had his wheelchair gold-plated and lined with velvet. ...

Which has primacy?

1. Freedom of Speech


or

2. Autonomy in Commmunication


How do these differ?

What do they comprise of?

What conflicting or intersecting rights exist?

Yes, I've not defined terms. I have definitions in mind, but am also trialing language. The 2nd term is novel and appears not to be in significant use. I'm interested in seeing what others presume the meaning to be.

#FreeSpeech #AutonomousCommunication
 
Regarding (de)platforming:

Is the question here one of Freedom of Speech or Autonomy in Commmunication?

How do these differ?

Which has primacy?

Some older material, from an older campaign, but very well en point: We need more speech, "and more robust dialogue, and that must include the right to insult or to offend". The outrage industry could have much worse consequences than it does in the UK.


FTR, "The Reform Section 5 campaign succeeded in its aim to amend Section 5. The change is now incorporated in Section 57 of the Crime and Courts Act 2013 which will come into force on 1 February 2014."

Poland hears echoes of Nazi rhetoric after German politician urges EU to 'starve Poland and Hungary'

A German is calling for the starvation of Hungary and Poland. No illusions remain. The fight for the rule of law is not meant to improve legislation in the EU. It is an ideological weapon against conservative governments'

À l’occasion de la sortie du beau livre Charlie Hebdo: 50 ans de liberté d’expression (éditions Les Échappés), France Inter ouvre ses micros, émissions, chroniques aux dessinateurs et rédacteurs de Charlie.

Charlie ramène sa science

Charlie Hebdo, journal satirique, propose chaque semaine des articles sur l'environnement, l'écologique et les sciences et c'est sérieux ! Charlie a été dès le début des années 70 à l'avant-garde avec la collaboration entre autres de Pierre Fournier, militant anti-nucléaire et Cavanna.

avec Fabrice Nicolino journaliste spécialiste de l‘écologie à Charlie Hebdo. Il tient depuis 2007 le blog Planète sans visa, autour des questions environnementales. En septembre 2018, il a lancé "L'appel des coquelicots", une campagne contre les pesticides de synthèse, qui a recueilli près d'un million de soutiens. Il a publié le livre Le crime est presque parfait : l'enquête choc sur les pesticides et le SDHI en 2019 Ed les Liens qui libèrent et lance prochainement Nous voulons des paysans.

et Antonio Fischetti, journaliste scientifique à Charlie Hebdo et auteur de livres sur les sciences comme La planète des sciences chez Dargaud ; Charlie au labo chez Belin, L’empire des sciences Ed Les échappées, Charlie ramène sa science avec Guillaume Lecointre.

Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.

this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?

This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.

Picture attached of one of the notices received by fedilab.

📣 Though Poland and Hungary have scored a notable victory in the fight of decoupling European Union subsidies to rule of law criteria at last week's EU summit, both countries will remain in the crosshairs of liberal MEPs. "Left-liberal forces are unwilling to accept that there are those who have diverging thoughts on the Christian roots of Europe, on immigration, multiculturalism, and families. Although they have now lost a battle, as they were unable to incorporate a means of political pressure, an ideological weapon in the accord of the leaders of governments and nations into the budget of the European Union. They will not give up the fight," said Hungarian Justice Minister Judit Varga over the weekend.

Justice for Dr. Richard Matthew Stallman


#freespeech #justiceforrms #rms #freesw #freesoftware #supportrms #gnu

[This is an improved version of a previous text and I now want to disseminate it much more.]

Bild/Foto

Dr. Richard Matthew Stallman (born 16 March 1953), often known by his initials rms, and occasionally uppercase RMS, is an American free (libre) software movement activist, hacker and programmer. He campaigns for software to be distributed in a manner such that its users receive the freedoms to use, study, distribute, and modify that software. Software that ensures these four freedoms is termed free software. Stallman launched the GNU Project, founded the Free Software Foundation, developed the GNU Compiler Collection and GNU Emacs, and wrote the GNU General Public License.

Richard Stallman is currently (since at least September 2019) the object of an Internet defamatory campaign which forced him to resign from his position at MIT and even from the FSF which he founded and led. The campaign is largely motivated by severe mischaracterizations, disproportionality and intolerance.

Reddit, youtube and twitch are banning many users. Well, I want to remind normies that they’ve been warned repeatedly and they didn’t listen. They should have boycotted those platforms and publish content on the alternatives. So they asked for it.

The Dictum That Truth Always Triumphs Over Persecution Is One of Those Pleasant Falsehoods Which All Experience Refutes

But, indeed, the dictum that truth always triumphs over persecution, is one of those pleasant falsehoods which men repeat after one another till they pass into commonplaces, but which all experience refutes. History teems with instances of truth put down by persecution. If not suppressed forever, it may be thrown back for centuries.

To speak only of religious opinions: the Reformation broke out at least twenty times before Luther, and was put down. Arnold of Brescia was put down. Fra Dolcino was put down. Savonarola was put down. The Albigeois were put down. The Vaudois were put down. The Lollards were put down. The Hussites were put down. Even after the era of Luther, wherever persecution was persisted in, it was successful. In Spain, Italy, Flanders, the Austrian empire, Protestantism was rooted out; and, most likely, would have been so in England, had Queen Mary lived, or Queen Elizabeth died. Persecution has always succeeded, save where the heretics were too strong a party to be effectually persecuted. No reasonable person can doubt that Christianity might have been extirpated in the Roman empire. It spread, and became predominant, because the persecutions were only occasional, lasting but a short time, and separated by long intervals of almost undisturbed propagandism.

It is a piece of idle sentimentality that truth, merely as truth, has any inherent power denied to error, of prevailing against the dungeon and the stake. Men are not more zealous for truth than they often are for error, and a sufficient application of legal or even of social penalties will generally succeed in stopping the propagation of either.

The real advantage which truth has, consists in this, that when an opinion is true, it may be extinguished once, twice, or many times, but in the course of ages there will generally be found persons to rediscover it, until some one of its reappearances falls on a time when from favourable circumstances it escapes persecution until it has made such head as to withstand all subsequent attempts to suppress it."
