Can't be that dumb.
One of Polistra's Laws: There's no such thing as an Unintended Consequence.
Powerful people and governments know what they're doing. You won't always see what they're doing because you're only supposed to see the parts that drive you to perform your assigned task, which may be "voting" or protesting or donating money.
Still, sometimes you have to wonder....
The latest crackdown on truth by Krauts seems to be fantastically stupid and pointless. The Kraut dysgovernment now requires publishers to eliminate heresy IMMEDIATELY on the receipt of EVEN ONE COMPLAINT.
This rule will be remarkably easy to destroy. If heretics have any sense at all, they will work together to submit massive piles of complaints against orthodox
speech, and more importantly against trivial and uncontroversial
speech. Snitch on Sorosians, snitch on Kardashians.
Because the publishers have to respond INSTANTLY, they won't be able to analyze the direction of the complaints. They will have to eliminate the orthodox and trivial
comments along with the heretical comments that will be algomatically censored.
Result: No speech at all. Nothing to carry advertising to eyeballs.
INQUISITIONS END WHEN THEY BURN THE WRONG PEOPLE.
This countertactic is so absurdly obvious that I can't believe the dysgovernment didn't foresee it. There must be a countercounter. I guess we'll see it when it happens.

Well, that didn't take long. Later the same day, the mess is already starting ... even without any effort by heretics! A sane German politician made a harsh comment about Muslims. Overgeneralized but basically valid in the context of the forced migration. Twitter instantly deleted the politician's account as the law requires. Nobody complained. A Kraut "satire" magazine, following the universal tradition of "satire" by burning heretics in especially colorful flames, requoted the original comment as part of the colorful flames. Twitter automatically banned the magazine as the law requires. Now the rule-makers are worried. Needless to say, they're not worried about their own tyranny, and they're not worried about their own forced invasion by foreign migrants violating Kraut laws, which caused victims of migrant crime to express anger. They're worried because Twitter is a foreign invader
Kraut laws. Can't make it up.
