- Eye Opening
After several tech companies, including Google, shut down extremist platforms, several members of alt-right movements are planning to create an alternative Internet ostensibly built around a broader definition and application of free speech. Tech writer April Glaser's article describes the developments before cleverly looping back to the question: No matter where you stand politically, do you want a few powerful tech companies to have the power to decide who gets to be on your Internet? getAbstract recommends this detailed account to anyone interested in the balance among free speech, hate speech, and the disparate political views in current American culture.
