Social media sites have begun falling all over themselves to ban Donald Trump.
Twitter has now permanently banned Donald Trump, Facebook and Instagram have banned him as well, Reddit has shut down it's largest Trump Group, Shopify has taken done Trump merchandise vendors, and (rather ironically) TikTok has banned Trump.
While I do find this rather heartening on one level, I find it worrying on another.
Specifically, we are privatizing the arbiters of acceptable speech.
The limits to speech have gone from, "Shouting fire in a crowded theater," to, "Whatever worries Mark Zuckerberg."
