What is happening with YouTube? And the internet for that matter…
Well, YouTube really isn’t the root of the problem. It’s the human race in general.
What a shame if the concern about hate speech is preventing many aspiring hopefuls from earning money.
I understand the need to reduce as much hate speech as possible, but come on. Whether or not it is eradicated from [social] media, hate will always exist. As will many other less than positive behaviors and thought processes. There are no two ways about it. Suppression does not equal elimination.
I’d say these restrictions target at least 75% of the content on YouTube.
I hate to break it to everyone, but life will never be strictly rainbows and unicorns. Good cannot exist without evil, and vice versa.
Limiting free speech only strengthens anger and hate.
Sooner or later, creators will become fed up, and resort to alternative moneymaking options. Many are already switching to Patreon. Where will that leave sites like YouTube?
Sorry, but there is no true ‘safe place’ in the world.
