Dear Medium,

You need to take your social responsibility more seriously and filter items like this out of my feed. It has influenced my thinking by 2%, which in itself doesn’t seem like much, but at scale, will be huge.

I don’t think this author was required to pass any kind of test before being allowed to post. Your authors need to be vetted far more carefully. Your vision of the Internet as some kind of bastion of uncontrolled free speech is dangerous and subversive. Please study Mao Zedong, Lenin, Kim Jong-il, Stalin and other great leaders who understood the idiocy of crowds and made sure to carefully curate the information the citizenry were allowed to consume.

Any assiduous student of history will agree that the societies in which people in power control the dialog of the common people are far superior to those societies where anyone is allowed to communicate anything they want, true or false. People are too stupid to know the difference.

Thanks, Medium!
