Now that they've figured out "Ideas are more powerful than guns." they aren't going to be letting the wrong people have them or distribute them. I don't think any viable competitor offering scaled speech solutions will be allowed to exist, so far none have.

The information wars have been fought and we lost.
Meanwhile, the gatekeepers cry, “But anyone can publish anything they want!” Sure, on blogs just like mine, which almost no one sees or reads as the large platforms dominate all, determining the thoughts people think and what they are allowed to say and to see. This allows plausible deniability, along with the idea that algorithms decide, not humans.
It was a perfect coup, perfectly executed. And now your thoughts are not your own.
