EU gives Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft 24 hours to censor all 'hate speech'

Prophecy Sign: The One World Government




When the Antichrist hits the scene, he will already have in place, one very well entrenched authoritarian government control system at his disposal with which to exercise his authority over the entire world.  That will include control over the internet.  (No more bible prophecy blogs warning the world of impending judgement from God).

People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?” The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. Revelation 13:4-5 NIV

EU gives Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft 24 hours to censor all 'hate speech'
The European Union has signed a deal with four of the world's biggest tech firms which will see "hate speech" deleted from social media in just 24 hours. Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and Google have all committed to new rules designed to "ensure that online platforms do not offer opportunities for illegal online hate speech to spread virally". All four firms have committed to quickly analyse and remove content involving "public incitement to violence or hatred directed against a group of persons or a member of such a group defined by reference to race, colour, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin".

Proposals to curb online speech viewed as threat to open internet
At least a dozen countries are considering or have enacted laws restricting online speech, a trend that is alarming policymakers and others who see the internet as a valuable medium for debate and expression. Such curbs are called out as a threat to the open internet in a report on internet governance set to be released today at an Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development meeting in Cancun, Mexico. The report, reviewed by Reuters, warns of dangers for the global internet, including intrusive surveillance, rising cybercrime and fragmentation as governments exert control of online content. It was prepared by the London-based Chatham House think tank and the Centre for International Governance Innovation, founded by former BlackBerry Ltd co-chief Jim Balsillie. China and Iran long have restricted online speech. Now limitations are under discussion in countries that have had a more open approach to speech, including Brazil, Malaysia, Pakistan, Bolivia, Kenya and Nigeria.
