Don't really matter what happens in the last chapter, lets just hope the epilogue is not eternal.

Re: Social media controls:

apparently Ayatollah Khomeini has been spouting hatred against isreal and inciting violence yet only 1 tweet got pulled by twitter. Trump gets banned for life, shouldn't Khomeini too? Double standards?

Freedom of speech is all about gone, it wont be long before we will even be able to say freedom of speech is gone!

Absolutely Lion Queen, there is definitely an agenda been followed by the media. We only get to hear what they want you to hear, but it's the things they exclude that is probably more important.

Well done with the spelling by the way...

Re: Social media controls:

Know thine enemy...keep your friends close and your enemies closer....all that rings true with me...

As long as it is legal, censorship is a slippery slope.

I understand that censoring the President is legal because Twitter is a private company, but I think censorship, if there is to be any should be done by a third party, not by the company that encourages speech in the first place.

But whoever implements rules, you cannot eliminate bias. It is a slippery slope indeed.

Re: Social media controls:

Quickbeam, while you worry about social media, I am more inclined to worry about the toxicity of entertainers that pretend to be journalists for supposed news outlets:
