With all the mayhem over the last week(s) with ongoing riots around the
US, culminating in the riots at Capital Hill last week, the real threat
is not Trump, or the Democrats, but the persistent political laziness
which causes us to respond over each political event with increasing
calls for government surveillance and stomping on freedom of speech.

Today is the watershed moment when your freedom of speech is now been
black boxed, just as it is in Communist China, but not yet as severe.
But the damage is deep.

Failure to own your own hosting services and have your own platform,
based of free software, is now cutting the life breath of political
speech as Amazon has shut down all AWS services to Paler. The excuse
for shutting down political speech is because it represents threats of
violence. Political speech always includes threats of violence, but it
has always been the strenth of our Democracy that prevents it. Instead
of getting off there asses and actually monitoring potential hate
groups, law enforcement and industry is instead attacking the very
apporatus of speech, taking away peoples printing press, and suppressing
free speech. This must be stopped now, or there is no hope for our

For starters, we much take action against Amazon NOW. We much change
our behaviors to encourage liberation of our computer systems so that we
can remain free. No events over the last 10 years is worthy of
suspending our freedom to talk, write and communicate.

Parler Sues Amazon After Tech Giant Kicks Site Off Its Servers
Keach Hagey
5-7 minutes

Social-media platform Parler has sued Amazon.com Inc. AMZN -2.15% after
the tech giant abruptly ended web-hosting services to the company,
effectively halting its operation.

In a complaint filed Monday in Seattle federal court, Parler alleged
that Amazon Web Services kicked the company off its cloud servers for
political and anti-competitive reasons. The conservative social network
founded in 2018 exploded in popularity among supporters of President
Trump after the November U.S. election.

=93AWS=92s decision to effectively terminate Parler=92s account is apparent=
motivated by political animus. It is also apparently designed to reduce
competition in the microblogging services market to the benefit of
Twitter, =94 according to the complaint, which also accused Amazon of
breaching a contract between the parties.

Amazon said Saturday that it would cut off Parler because it wasn=92t
confident in its ability to sufficiently police content on its platform
that incites violence. The company said while it would no longer provide
web services to Parler after Sunday at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time, it would
preserve the platform=92s data and help it migrate to different servers.

In its complaint, Parler also accused Amazon of applying a double
standard than with other platforms, noting that Twitter had recently
signed a multi-year web-hosting deal with the company.

An AWS spokesman said the claims had no merit and it respected Parler=92s
right to determine what content it will allow.

=93However, it is clear that there is significant content on Parler that
encourages and incites violence against others, and that Parler is
unable or unwilling to promptly identify and remove this content, which
is a violation of our terms of service,=94 the AWS spokesman said. =93We
made our concerns known to Parler over a number of weeks and during that
time we saw a significant increase in this type of dangerous content,
not a decrease, which led to our suspension of their services Sunday

The situation with Parler shows the growing breadth and effect of
efforts by big technology companies to restrict content they label as
dangerous after last week=92s mob attack on the U.S. Capitol. Amazon had
said in a letter to Parler over the weekend that it had seen a steady
increase in violent content on the site and said Parler=92s efforts to
remove it were inadequate.

Parler=92s effective disappearance came shortly after Apple Inc. and
Alphabet Inc.=92s GOOG -2.24% Google removed the Parler app for mobile
devices from their app stores=97making it difficult for new users to
download=97without shutting down the service. Amazon=92s move had a far more
severe impact because it provides the back-end servers that host
Parler=92s website and databases, as it does for a large array of other
prominent companies.

=93As more of a libertarian, more of a minimal government type of person,
I hate relying on the legal system,=94 Parler Chief Executive John Matze
told The Wall Street Journal Sunday in an interview. =93I know we have to.=

Mr. Matze said in a Parler post on Saturday that it was possible the
service would be unavailable for as long as a week while it found new
hosting services.

Parler executives have previously told the Journal that the company has
been working to bolster its content-moderation efforts. In recent days,
they said, Parler doubled its team of volunteer moderators=97called
=93jurors=94=97to more than a thousand and instructed them to search popular
hashtags for incitement, a more proactive approach than what was used
previously. The company also instructed its jurors to hunt down any
content suggesting violence within the comment sections of its more
highly trafficked sections, and planned to hire employees to bolster
these efforts, they said.

But tech companies told Parler they believed those efforts were
