Recently, Facebook banned me from advertising. I asked why and– at this writing–they’ve not yet answered. I’m guessing someone skimmed the headlines of this blog and misconstrued the content. Maybe.
The issue of freedom and intolerance comes to mind. Should we be free to be intolerant, small-minded, stupid, blind, ignorant? Should we really be that free?
Of course. There is no freedom without choices, even poor ones. And I certainly don’t like the idea of government defining ‘poor choices’ for us.
So, I defend Facebook’s right to shut down my advertising. I hope they will always be free to be as intolerant as they choose. And I hope I am always free to advertise somewhere else.
May it never be any other way.
