Comment: Censorship comes from my wallet.

Censorship comes from my wallet.

I choose who to censor with my wallet.

Let me give you an example of what I mean..

In a true free market, restaurant owners could set up a sign saying "No white people allowed" or "No black people allowed" or "No bald people allowed". I would be ok with that because they would be managing their business the way they wanted to manage it.

Being ok with them doing that is not the same as supporting that behavior. I would vote them down with my purchasing power and would not eat at those restaurants. If I happened to see you walk in to one of those restaurants to eat and lets say you had a flower shop, I would not buy any flowers from you..

Censorship comes from anyone willing to make use of it.

Our true power is in our wallets, not in the "opportunity" to vote every X amount of years..


I try to change people every day. Do You?
