We take for granted what our digital voice allows. It allows us to share our thoughts, feeling, and opinions. It allows us to defend ourselves online. It allows us to connect with others instantaneously, from anywhere in the world. It allows us to have a presence.
We are now witnessing what can happen to someone who abuses that voice....it can be silenced, digitally.
The silence is deafening. Tech companies have decided to silence trump on their respective platforms for inciting violence. This is an appropriate action that needed to be taken to protect innocent people from becoming victims of hate speech.
5 people died in the assault on the Capitol. These are people that would still be alive today, had trump not called on his followers to attack the Capitol. Their lives were taken from them because someone could not accept the loss of an election.
This was earned.
