Excellent production value, great content, but a bit skewed
Verified purchase
First, I have always been of the school of thought that if I don't like a particular movie, TV show, or public figure, I simply don't watch or listen to anything associated with them. In short, I change the TV channel, click to another video, stay away from a movie, or ignore the public figure whenever he/she comes on whatever screen I happen to be watching.

I'm definitely not one of those narrow-minded egotistical individuals who fatuously thinks: Well, because I don't want to watch Alex Jones, NO ONE should watch Alex Jones! Put the content out there on whatever available platform and as long as it abides by whatever rules/regulations that govern that particular platform, let it roll. (Of course, I'm not saying it's permissible to stream live sexual assaults or the advocating of physical harming someone.)

While I felt for those featured in this documentary, I don't think the director gave full scope to some of the incendiary stuff those individuals were spewing which resulted in them being labeled "hate mongers," "white supremists," "right wing reactionaries."

I agree with another review that asserted that the documentary turned Jones, Loomer, Watson, and the others into "victims." It should be considered that they all had a role in their own victimization. It's not like they didn't give their respective platforms reasons to ban them.

Still, I'd recommend watching the documentary if for no other reason to be made aware that social media can and will censor contact, regardless of Constitutionally guaranteed rights/privileges.

Very interesting

I remember reading 1984 and Fahrenheit 451 in school and talking about the dangers of censorship no matter how abysmal the speech may be. It seems that we are living in those novels now. It is extremely dangerous to be able to label someone a fascist, nazi, racist, etc. and then remove their ability to publicly defend themselves on the very platforms being used to defame them. There's no truth if the truth can't be challenged. These platforms are becoming major parts of our lives. People run their campaigns on these platforms. This is controlled opposition, controlled speech, and controlled thoughts through social pressure and fear of harm.

Remember progressives, today's progressivism is tomorrow's conservativism. There will come a day when YOU are the witch, and they'll want to burn you too.

Love the movie Very insightful

Very insightful and I love the journalism out of it fantastic. So deep and moving of the struggle how the mainstream media is trying to silence other opinions on other voices we truly live in a fascist dictatorship ruled by major corporations and Tech Giants. Even if you like Alex Jones or not he still has the right to say what he wants to is called the First Amendment and when you stifle that freedom of speech they have no way to defend their self from scrutiny or speak up... for all the people who think that they're a bunch of whiny babies they're completely ignorant. Is a human right to defend yourself and the court of in the public eye. Silencing other voices shows me that you're a coward and you don't have a good grasp of your ideology. And we know your philosophy is ignorant if you have to silence others... the America everybody has the right to be part of this family and be part of the values that we have. Is the opportunity of ideas and thoughts and diversity of philosophy. That is our American values and the American way. If you don't like that then go somewhere else everybody has the right to speak

The amount of people that don’t know this film exists is staggering. The people that celebrate censorship think they’re part of a revolution, but have no idea that their just pawns for corporations and big government.

I feel this is another great documentary on how free speech is being silenced today this movie and no safe spaces should be free on prime but I realize why they are not for obvious reasons.
