How about we make this an EU law.

Leaders who attempt to pass bulls*** censorship laws are executed for crimes against humanity.

This certainly explains why they're going so hard after US-based tech companies like Microsoft, Google, and Apple.

This has been going on for years. They've been requesting Google to delete search results because European politicians have been caught cheating on their significant others or doing other embarrassing or criminal things.

The other thing is that companies like Google, Facebook and Microsoft control so much of their data that they're really uncomfortable with it. But it's Europe's fault for being so socialist...otherwise they wouldn't be so lazy and come up with a Search product to compete against Google.

All they do now is complain and find ways to screw over US companies.

European countries don't have a search engine to call their own. Russia has Yandex. China has 2 search engines. All European countries use Google, instead of creating their own search engine. They use WhatsApp and Facebook instead of creating their own chat apps. Yes, I call them lazy because many people in those countries are spoiled lazy by socialist policies and generous vacations.

Go look up the utter disaster that happened when Spain demanded royalty fees from news aggregators.
tl;dr version: Google responded by shutting down Spain's Google News. Pretty much every Spanish news site's traffic tanked immediately.

You can't read? I said socialist policies and generous vacations. Are you European? I mean it hates to hear the truth, but that's the truth.

China has WeChat and other chat apps. What does Europe have? I like said, so many people, so many companies and still couldn't produce anything worthwhile.

Linux's humble origins may have began in Europe, but the current beast is very much an American creation, as the last 2 decade of development, the meat of the OS has been done here in the United States. And Skype, something from the early 2000's that was bought by an American Company has been a stateside product since 2005. I mean you really have dig deep to find something, anything that's recent enough to be consider this decade. Meanwhile, American tech companies flourish by the thousands.

Oh, let the insults keep flying little man. Read my original post. "So socialist" indicates a high degree of socialism and it's encompassing of policies. If you're this dumb and I have to explain to you, then you need to go back to studying instead of playing video games all day.

So there's absolutely no chance for you to be punished for hate speech?

I mean, I can be punished, but that would be in the form of future employment, and the thoughts people have about me.

I hate to say it, but the second the Supreme Court decides that banning hate speech is constitutional is the day our 1st amendment dies.

Contrary to popular belief, both extremes are authoritarian. They're against fascism, but communist governments are just AS oppressive. Fascism wants to control you for the good of the state, and Communism wants you control you for the good of the people. That's why it's so screwed up that we demonize fascists (rightfully so) but allow people to walk around being openly communist. Ultimately they're the same thing.

communism is an absurdity that could never exist. communists are just hateful evil authoritarians who want to drag everyone into poverty.

You got to be kidding me: Estonia is a micro country in the EU that has absolutely nothing to say over the majority of member countries. And the phrase "current EU Presidency" is just a name that shift between EU countries every six month. It's a joke that will never happen.
