So many people are becoming extremists. Extreme Left, Extreme Right, Extreme This, Extreme That .. ... Filtering their information pipeline can only be a bad thing in the long run that will divide society even further.
I'm in a YouTube bubble right now. Its fucking awful. I only get videos recommended to me from whom Im subscribed too, the videos on the right when viewing these videos are just more videos from the same channel or videos from other channels I'm subscribed to. There's nothing fresh ever thrown my way anymore, its only stuff Ive viewed already or the stuff of those Im subscribed too. WTF DO I DO?
The Internet is supposed to be an open sharing of information -- censorship violates this concept. Censorship has no value in a free thinker's world.
