Why not an official Government blog to protect free speech? Be more effective than the First Amendment!

Because anything Government promises, Government can renig.

Like the original Social Security trust fund that was confiscated to pay for the Vietnam War in the 1960s. Today, SS is a ponzi scheme propped up by immediate taxation; we will never see a cent of our "contributions."

True but it could be worth a try. Naturally [in the US] the Democrats could try and weaken any such institution e.g. new rules for the Mods, but if the institution was valued by the Public there'd be a hue and cry, political pressure etc. It's just that it can be very difficult to state a controversial opinion on-line any more and if Western Governments were genuine about protecting free speech they'd ensure that could happen.
