The US has a history going back to the 1800's of regulating communication monopolies and not allowing them to censor speech they don’t like. The rules also prevented one person from owning all the newspapers or TV stations in the same market. Just because a corporation provides a service is no reason that they get any additional power to dictate restrictions. Are you comfortable with your internet provider censoring your emails and texts ? Are you ok with your phone censoring your calls if they don’t agree with what you are saying? What if your electric company insists on censoring what you say because they are using their electricity? What if a private business monopoly won’t let you communicate over their network because they don’t like your race or religion or gender or political party? Your doctrine of unlimited monopoly censorship power allows all these. I find it fundamentally totalitarian in its conceptual foundation. Maybe you haven’t followed through the implications. The US was founded a country that protects free speech. Don’t you agree?
