Silicon Valley has gone all-in
On purging ideas deemed bad

It’s like mouths washed out with soap
By the nuns who taught my dad

The important distinction being:
That was in 1955

Those with soap on their hands today
Were decades from being alive

We’re going backward
In the name of progress

Building fences
And letting them flog us

Why?

Views on the news, delivered so smooth. This week’s inspired by:

PewDiePie’s Battle for the Soul of the Internet

Against Big Tech Viewpoint Discrimination
