    From the first article, by Kelly Wright:

    These new rules are an unsettling escalation in the concerted effort to deplatform and disrupt those engaged in decentralized organizing against rising authoritarianism. […]

    This content policy shift portends a potential future where social media giants are compelled to act as content moderators of their behemoth platforms. That future is made more likely by the recent Congressional efforts to erode Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996, which shields publishers like Facebook from being punished for content produced on their sites by users. These companies will likely err on the side of caution which will lead to similar policies omitting important voices from public discourse. It is unlikely that Facebook’s deplatforming of antifascist organizations will receive the same attention as commentators “cancelled” for opinions shared on their talk shows or regular news columns. Calls for more heavily policed speech will invariably end up silencing those with the least amount of resources and those deemed politically inconvenient and not worth defending. […]
