In a rare rejection of state prerogative, the Supreme Court upheld the right of social media platforms to censor posts.

Social media platforms, besides having the right to censor, also have an obligation to censor. We wouldn't want to live in a world where stupidity and hate cannot be barred from public discourse.

Yes, that decision was sickening. I listened to a detailed podcast episode dissecting it. As best I can figure, the Supreme Court took an absurdly extreme state's rights position, whereby the state's right to be wrong trumped the right to life of a man who likely was innocent.

The man had the misfortune of not being an embryo, because boy, if he was an embryo, the Supreme Court would have moved heaven and earth to save him.

Yep. In this case, the Supreme Court can't see the forest for the trees. The ultimate purpose of a court is to administer justice and it is clearly not doing that here.
