The European Union’s executive has started to compile guidelines for Big Tech platforms to prevent disinformation, hate speech and counterfeits from disrupting the process of democratic elections.
We must ask the question: if people are too stupid and weak to consider free information, then how can they possibly be allowed to vote?
It doesn’t make sense.
Either people are the fully-actualized individuals that democracy supporters claim, and are capable of considering all information and then determining a path for the state, or they are stupid morons who can’t tell the difference between fact and fiction, and thus should have no say in the way the government is run.
Both cannot be simultaneously true.
