Idiot Extraordinaire: Jim Sterling
« on: June 12, 2018, 12:50:23 AM »
Jim Sterling does not know how to defend free speech

Jim's point boils down to this: if Steam does not moderate it's storefront (too the extent at which it can be called censorship) then regulations will follow.  This simply proves the point of many critics of the far left.  They are not content with the free market or the free marketplace of ideas.  That they geniunely believe it is the corporations', if not the government's, duty to police everyone's thoughts and opinions.  That they should de-platform anyone that does not adhere to their regressive orthodoxy.

Most video game critics on YouTube understand that content distributors should not take crap for content they host.  Credit for the content and quality of video games falls squarely on the developers.

Rags goes into much more detail as to why this problematic (to which Jim Sterling failed to refute):

To reiterate a point by Rags, no one gives crap to Wal-Mart or Barnes & Noble for selling copies of Mein Kampf or the Qu'Ran.  Everyone (at least those who haven't drunken the Kool-Aid for the far left or other identitarian sects) perfectly understands how awful Nazism and Wahabbism (not to throw shade at all Muslims) is.  In fact most are appreciative of content stores and libraries for selling or renting copies of books that promote such horrible ideologies.
Working every day to expose the terrible price we pay for government.
