Daniel McAdams from the Ron Paul Institute gave a talk last weekend about groups funding war propaganda in mainstream and social media, and how they prevent anti-interventionist voices from being heard on those same platforms.

Companies like YouTube, Google, Facebook, and Twitter are now judging—and banning—ideological content based on the guidance of really evil organizations like the Atlantic Council, Snopes.com, and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

All of this poses serious questions for doctrinaire libertarians, not only concerning free speech, but also property rights: remember, these are ostensibly private companies free to operate as they see fit.
