Mark Zuckerberg issued a statement calling for more government regulation for Internet speech. The entire statement is at the link below, and begins:
I believe we need a more active role for governments and regulators. By updating the rules for the internet, we can preserve what’s best about it — the freedom for people to express themselves and for entrepreneurs to build new things — while also protecting society from broader harms.
As far as I can tell, it’s a proposal to move the Facebook Trust and Safety council work to a globally coordinated set of government agencies. Internet “providers” would be responsible for enforcing the speech policies specified by this group. He has promised to support these agencies with Facebook’s current filtering software.
Am I wrong in thinking that, if this proposal is accepted as it seems to be intended, that the speech restrictions would apply not just to Facebook but to other Internet “providers” such as Ratburger?
