  1. I just heard something about widevine. I downloaded Chrome.deb (Don’t remember the real file name) and extracted libwinevinecdm.so and copied it in many places like ~/.config/Chromium/ and ~/.config/Chromium/Default/ and /usr/lib/Chromium/, but nothing works. What do I need to do?

    Free Speech and Censorship

    So there is nobody at the helm steering which stories get told and which ones get bashed? Why then do we hear the cover story about Venezuela instead of what is really happening? The USA sanctions are the cause of Venezuela struggles, not the leader;s fault. All because the leader will not sell its oil to the USA companies at a cheap enough price. Why don't we hear that angle of the story? Because the "Free" press is not free, but bought and paid for.

    Free Speech and Censorship

    Well, what do you think about a president who berates the corporate media? Is he right? The corporate media regurgitates what the elite pays them to tell. I seen a video where 17 news people were verbatim, saying the exact same story unedited by anyone except the one who handed them the story. I think the corporate media is a sham, but I don't think it is the president who will fix the problem with corporate media.

    Maybe it has been done before and they didn't succeed so you can look at why they didn't succeed and figure out a better way to do it...

    Sorry, but you're getting into state and country laws that I don't understand and never studied. Maybe someone else here can answer your questions.

    Free Speech and Censorship

    States each have their state constitutions and depending on the state, most likely they have laws against states, counties, cities, villages, etc. from making laws countermanding the United States of America's Constitution. I'm not a constitutional scholar, so take my answer with a grain of salt.

    Free Speech and Censorship

    Congress passed laws that say the public has to pay taxes, but there are some people who claim Congress doesn't have the constitutional authority to pass those laws therefore making those laws illegal.

    Yes, it is, but it is condoned by society that private/corporate stores have dictatorship rights against those that promote violence against their financial health.

    Yes it is, but in our society, bosses and parents can act like dictators in their respective environments.

    Free Speech and Censorship

    With the Freedom of Religion law, the religious people can do whatever they want as long as they don't hurt anyone. The Congress is BANNED from making laws that puts one religion over another, so the religious can't count on the government to help push their agenda which imo is a great thing. Politics are as bad as religion. They fuel nationalism to give them purpose. They do this with lies. They twist scientific fact to suit their agenda. I would never argue that we have too much freedom, but some would while not understanding that taking away one freedom leads to most freedoms taken away.

    Free Speech and Censorship

    I agree that Political truth is much harder to find than scientific truth. Scientific truth is twisted by politics. Scientific truth is many times rejected by the religious. Conspiracy theorists sew fear to get their followers to listen and believe. You say it won't work and I agree nothing is perfect, that's why I also say that the offending posts remain whole but with a warning so that the entity presenting the warning can be checked by peers, and public. I can't think of a better way. Can you?

    Free Speech and Censorship

    I'm sorry. My bad. I did not come across clearly. When I was equating pollution to free speech, I was referring to the huge, enormous, problem (disaster) of Tribalism. On platforms like facebook, Tribalism is caused by the god right to censor (block) anyone anytime indiscriminately. It causes the polarization of online groups which infiltrates our culture, society in the real world. In that light, the corporations that inadvertently cause Tribalism have a responsibility to public health. So, changing the block feature would NOT be so cost prohibitive. But it would cure Tribalism. The change can be described as allowing people to ignore a person, but the posts of that person will still be able to be seen by everyone else. People, on some platforms, can delete posts as well which also causes Tribalism. Censoring is NOT a good thing, publicly or privately. Censorship is about control of one person by another. It's WAY PAST time to force the corporations to change the way they approach free speech.

    Free Speech and Censorship

    The two groups need to abide by the law. The law says we have a freedom of religion which also means freedom of non-religion. That means there cannot be a law that promotes one religion over all others. So the religious groups with their religious views do not get to impose their values on the rest of us. It is the fairest way all religions can survive relatively unfettered by the government. Since EACH religion says it is the right one, no One religion can come on top. If a religious person lays forth a secular reason for a rule, then it is okay. But if that religious person lays forth a religious reason for a rule, then that would be putting ONE religion over all others.

    Free Speech and Censorship

    That's why I joined this forum, because of it's adherence to the principles of free speech. I think that corporations have extra responsibilities to the health of the public and its culture. I am NOT saying LTT needs changes. I am saying that MOST other platforms should emulate LTT's take on free speech.
