Censorship by tech giants is an assault on the right to exist in an online-dominated society


The blueprint for how tech giants covertly silence online speech, and how America can fight back against corporate tech monopolists

To date, no one has assembled a comprehensive compendium of the aggressive censorship
strategies and mechanisms now being deployed against users being targeted by the tech
giants. This document aims to serve as a primer “blueprint” to explain both the motivations
behind the extreme censorship as well as the technical / mechanical means through
which such censorship is carried out.

This document should be required reading for any lawmaker, regulator or judicial decision
maker interested in protecting the freedom of speech that has served as a critical pillar in
our society for over two centuries.

Today’s attacks on the First Amendment are being carried out by a “triple threat” tag-team
of institutions:
#1) Tech giants - Their role is to carry out the mechanics of censorship, shadow banning,
“doubt interruptions” and other techniques described in this report.

#2) Establishment media - Tasked with promoting the lynch mob mentality of hysteria
and hatred which is translated into widespread calls for silencing whatever voices they don’t
like: CNN’s insistent demand for InfoWars to be deplatformed from Facebook, for example.

#3) Third party fact-checkers and moderators - These groups, such as the SPLC,
Politifact, etc., are given the task of flagging all undesirable political speech (or even speech
about natural health, as you’ll see below) as “hate speech,” creating the justification for tech
giants to ban or deplatform such accounts without having to accept internal organizational
responsibility for discriminating against selected targeted.
