“Free speech is not an absolute human right,” says Helle Thorning Schmidt, member of Facebook’s Oversight Board and former PM of Denmark. “It has to be balanced with other human rights.”

The Facebook Oversight Board, which consists of 20 members from around the world, was created last year to help corporate executives to distance themselves from decisions considered to be politically.
We’re told we have to use certain words to describe certain people (pronouns). I can’t keep them straight.
Anything that some people say is wrong and others are always right, based on arbitrary rules that benefit only the elite.
Who told them that they are the arbiters of what we can say? (They can’t for me as I deleted them).
Most of all, why are they trying to stop free speech? Usually it is because they have something to hide.
Why are people standing for this? Those that do are dumbasses.
I can say that my life is much better without it. I have a lot more time and most of the content is BS anyway. Now, if only certain things are allowed, you have a one sided discussion. Count me out.
It is funny that the Whitehouse is fighting with fake book over Covid content in a game of finger pointing. They always eat their own.
What is humorous to me is that I have Danish relatives. Live by Jante’s Law, die by the sword.
