This week, I finally settled on a simpler comparison: Think about
Facebook as a seller of meat products.
Most of the meat is produced by others, and some of the cuts are
delicious and uncontaminated. But tainted meat — say, Trump
steaks — also gets out the door in ever increasing amounts and
without regulatory oversight.
The argument from the head butcher is this: People should be free
to eat rotten hamburger, even if it wreaks havoc on their
gastrointestinal tract, and the seller of the meat should not be
the one to tell them which meat is good and which is bad (even
though the butcher can tell in most cases).
Basically, the message is that you should find the truth through
vomiting and — so sorry — maybe even death.
