This is about Twitter, but I observe it regularly here at Amazon. It's gotta be the same pretty much everywhere else.

How do we fix? See poll...

    If society doesn't like an opinion it will be silenced. Conservatives are old fashioned and intolerant and society is over it. If they dislike being silenced then they should change their opinions or build their own platform from which to speak.

      Told ya @FCUc30 is dumbass, or possibly so brainwashed by leftism within Google that they can’t see past it. Both are indicators that it’s time to regulate Google.

      Leftists are much more intolerant in my experience than conservatives

    At Amazon I lied about my political views. My colleagues thought I was a hardcore liberal SJW.

      Conservative + bay area is a terrible combination. SJWs are going militant these days. Thanks obama

    It's shameful if you think you have to hide your viewpoint. Let people know you are proud to be republican. Shit.

    It’s not silencing, we’ve simply evolved past the points that reactionaries want to argue. They’re scratching their heads pondering whether Latino people should be allowed in the workplace, meanwhile the rest of us are trying to get things done.

      Who ever put that idea about Latinos forward?

    I've read about this.

    It's a somewhat rare acknowledgment of the problem, and it's no occasion wave it around as an I-told-you-so-stick. I think it's better to thank the dude for his honesty and ask how we can be part of a constructive solution to it.

    Or we can antagonize and continue with more of the same.

    Politics have become the new religion. There’s no value to ever discussing politics at work as it’s too risky.

    It’s never good on either side when rational thought and discussion are silenced.

      The trouble is who gets to define what counts as rational discussion. The Marketplace of ideas approach doesn’t always produce the best results, and is often counterproductive

      True, but there’s a wide range in possible ideas between liberals thinking conservatives are neo nazis who want a return to slavery and women barefoot and pregnant and conservatives thinking liberals want America to become a communist/socialist Russia with government redistribution and where identity/ethnicity/background matters more than results. In a country divided 40/40/20, the extremists are relatively small on each side and rational discussion is the only way to avoid a schism

    Wow. What a bunch of entitled conservative snowflakes! World does not owe you a platform for your backward ideas. Reread “Atlas Shrugged” and get over it!
