Musk Agrees to Restore Twitter Content-Moderation Tools This Week

Musk made the commitment during a Zoom meeting with the heads of some of the country’s leading racial justice organizations, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Color of Change, and the Anti-Defamation League.

Musk also asked the civil rights leaders to join his content-moderation council focused on handling speech and users on the platform, they said.

Eisenstadt, ADL’s vice president, said her group will likely accept the invitation, though several attendees said they will hold off until they get more information about what the council will look like, how it will operate and who else will serve on it.

People who try to report on the war in Ukraine from the Russian side or who try to provide humanitarian aid to those in need in the new Russian territories are excluded from public discourse.

In the future, anyone who says something that looks like a “playing down of Russian war crimes” can be punished for “incitement of the people” according to a legislative amendment passed by the Bundestag in summary proceedings on Thursday. By Ulrich Heyden.

When you arrive in another country, there is nothing more precious than new friends who adopt you, protect you, and teach you about their language, music, culture, and traditions. For an open-minded traveler, ethnographer and anti-imperialist organizer, this new family is more valuable than any air-conditioned hotel, amount of comfort or money.

The Sickness of the American Left and the Path to Recovery

By Danny Haiphong – Sep 2, 2022

Leftists in the United States are suffering from a propaganda-induced delirium. Revolutionary discipline can get us through the winter storm.

The Sickness of the American Left and the Path to Recovery

I’m pretty sure that he’s criticizing the PatSocs, such as Haz from Infrared, Jackson Hinkle, and Caleb Maupin (who’s embroiled in his own controversy). To me, Patriotic Socialism is just a gimmick to get Trump supporters to embrace their movement that they claim is Socialist (it’s not, it’s more like right-wing populism).
