That would be nice.Social media should have standards and accounts posting misinformation should be banned. Social media has more effect than news on televisions and radios.
But when the Federal government distributes lies and disinformation, I have a simple question.
Who, EXACTLY, gets to decide what is true and what is not true.
Quite honestly I don't trust anyone with the power to decide what is true and what is not.
In the past the government or the church could prosecute "heresy", that didn't work out all that well.
Sure it helped maintain social order, but the truth suffered.
Now, I think most people would agree that the Federal government shouldn't be the artibter of what is true or not true.
For example I think it would be obvious there are concerns with Trump "deciding" what's true.
I also don't trust Trudeau to decide "truth" either.
Even on "scientific" stuff there is, or at least should be, some critical opinion of a position. Why, because if you can't withstand criticism, your ideas are dumb.
Back when flat earthers were prevalent, round earthers were persecuted.
Today round earthers are prevalent, and flat earthers are free to speak, and mostly ignored except as a humorous curiosity.
The bigger problem is the censorship of the truth, and I don't trust anyone to decide for me.
