Deplatforming Becomes More Pervasive

Recently everyone saw the spectacle of Alex Jones being outlawed from YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Apple Apps, etc., etc., etc.  Vox Day posted that Indiegogo has reneged on his recent crowdfunding foray for one of his comic books.  Without a doubt our Tech Masters are intent on purging the sinners from their midst.  Now this isn’t a surprise especially to Vox who preaches the good word of building our own platforms.  But the hardest things to replace are financial institutions.  Things like PayPal, Stripe and the various crowdfunding companies are currently irreplaceable for net businesses and they know it.    The Trump Administration has made the first rumblings against the Techs for persecuting the Right on-line.  But it will probably be a long time before any legal relief is possible.  This makes it more important than ever for alternatives to be established.  But who has the wherewithal?  It’s one thing to open a store on Amazon (which is also a risk to right wing individuals and businesses) but it’s quite another to open a bank.  So right now, there’s no good answer for this.  Hopefully some of the bigger players on the right side of the aisle will see this as an opportunity and jump in to service an under-served market.  That’s right Peter Thiel I’m talking to you.
