Free speech absolutists in “new media” are the almost disingenuous folks on the “left” in the US. They start from a framework that nobody should ever be censored, and the argument is never that the problem with censorship is that you don’t want liberal bourgeois institutions
making that call. They advocate from their own self-interest while presenting the issue as one as undeniable, objective fact that we should be outraged over. The fact is, not all speech needs to be permitted in a material world where there are material consequences to not making
people shut the fuck up. People die over this shit. Let’s stop pretending otherwise.
