Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Any online community that is explicitly pro-free speech will inevitably become right-leaning. This is because in the free market of ideas right-leaning ideas win. Which is why we see these left-wing tech companies censoring. No one is buying their progressive, globalist [REDACTED] anymore, so it must be force-fed down the throats of users and dissent must be stamped out with the iron fist of censorship.” — Gab CEO Andrew Torba
If you think about it, it makes sense. Ricochet is an example. We have had progressives and liberals join Ricochet to convert the heathen conservatives t0 their political bent instead staying and becoming right-leaning. Because the center-right arguments convinced them. In a free marketplace of ideas, the better arguments win.
It also explains why so much of the left went hair-on-fire when Elon Musk bought Twitter and turned it into X — a free-speech bastion. Without censorship, their ideas lose, and Twitter/X was a big stick in the social media world. Good ideas trump bad ideas.
It also explains why the current administration is so hard over on active censorship. Unless they control the narrative — all of it — the reality of Bidenomics and the results of the wretched policies of this administration are as bare as the emperor wearing his new clothes. That simply cannot be allowed.Published in
