Practically all government attempts to redistribute wealth and income tend to smother productive incentives and lead toward general impoverishment. It is the proper sphere of government to create and enforce a framework of law that prohibits force and fraud. But it must refrain from specific economic interventions. Government's main economic function is to encourage and preserve a free market. ~Henry Hazlitt, Economics in One Lesson

On Monday, Facebook blocked former presidential candidate Ron Paul from his own page. The move came hours after the longtime congressman and libertarian hero shared an article he wrote criticizing Twitter and Facebook for banning President Donald Trump from their platforms. The only material Paul posted to Facebook on Monday was the article previously noted, his weekly "Texas Straight Talk" column, which he has published every week since 1976. “With no explanation other than ‘repeatedly going against our community standards,’ Facebook has blocked me from managing my page” Banning the president of the United States was shocking. Banning Ron Paul is horrifying. It is senseless. Paul is a man of principle and peace. He is 85 and not active in politics. Paul does not incite violence and is a threat to no one. https://fee.org/articles/facebook-suspends-ron-paul-following-column-criticizing-big-tech-censorship/?fbclid=IwAR2eG6EkQtgfqEO9SPXc-4-AYYSwfHLp5mKg1Avrm8E6LRp3sUT3OtD0RDA ................................................................................................. #internet #technology #socialmedia #censorship #news
