Section 230 provides vital protections that allow private companies and their users to use the internet freely. Making tech companies responsible for their algorithms’ recommendations is a slippery slope that could end up making any company responsible for its users. Any alteration to Section 230 would cripple free speech and completely upend social media.
Section 230 is a malevolent statute that allows the world’s most powerful corporations to hide behind a shield of immunity while they violate the rights of users. Big Tech platforms actively censor dissenting voices without even trying to hide it — they violate civil rights and deny the most basic right of all, freedom of speech.
