Americans Need Constitutionally-Compliant Social Media submitted by Wahwahweewah to politics

Ive been thinking about this alot

What would be required to create a social media system invunreable to bad actors?

I believe the main keys would be:

Blockchain - obviously utilizing Blockchains incredible power of being secure without trusting an authority would be key.

Media - The success of such a site would either be it's ability to gather ALL types of media (video, audio, written) and all types of attention (short like Snapchat and long like Youtube) OR it's ability to specialise in each of these domains, and as we get ONE win on these platforms (say a short form written tool becomes big) we could branch out.

Storage - the next problem is how to store the content, because we can certainly share youtube videos, but could we host videos? Bitchute is very slow for example. How do we solve the storage problem?

Incentive - how to do we incetiviz the platform builders BEYOND ethics, how could we reward them with money for building such a thing and sarificing their time? Perhaps they would gain massive leverage and followers and thus spin off a business - or disclouse an open ownership in say 5% of the Blockchain nodes?

Power - in the absolute worst case scenario and this censorship reaches it's logical conclusion, they will be BANNED from the internet and they will lose access to national infastructre like electricity, so how coudl we power our own "network"? Solar panels for each node or something

Values - this is also very clear, we want a free market of ideas, based on the Libertarian principles expoused by those British philosophers like Adam Smith. How do we create a culture that implies this dogma towards freedom of speech, does that mean NO HATESPEECH laws? Does that mean ANYTHING goes? Cause then it risks becoming like Silk ROad and... well the founder go imprisoned didn't he?

I'm not sure if any of this is conscious anymore

It seems like the IDEAS have become so unquestionable that the content curators are simply Flagging anything without checking it thoughly

I was teaching a woman english a few weeks ago and she was getting trained for the position of Content Checker

It was not a position of Philosophical Nuance
