As police raid the homes of peaceful activists for Facebook posts critical of the state, rampant illegal threats to murder children and kill people go unchecked and essentially ignored by the social media giant.

Over the past month, the social media giant, Facebook, has been in countless headlines ranging from the scope of their data collection to rampant censorship of peaceful groups. The world is now finding out that the social media network they agreed to join is also in the business of mining their data, controlling the narrative, and stifling free speech.

Many have suspected that the rife censorship, removal of pages, and banning of members has long been the means by which Facebook is able to push a deliberate agenda. Even the interface of the entire platform, according to its creators, is designed to create a feedback loop in which “bad actors can manipulate large swaths of people to do anything you want.”

Indeed, Chamath Palihapitiya, former vice president of user growth at Facebook recently stated at a public discussion at the Stanford Graduate School of Business,“Everybody else has to soul-search a little bit more about what you’re willing to do. Because your behaviors, you don’t realize it, but you are being programmed. It was unintentional, but now you gotta decide how much you’re willing to give up, how much of your intellectual independence.”

These recent revelations about the way people interact with Facebook and the way it can be used to steer public discourse has created a furious debate within the government as well as the private sector. In reality, however, Facebook is a private company. Everything that you see on the platform, you agreed to in its terms of service. This includes censorship, steering political agendas, and even getting banned for calling out the atrocities of war.

While much of this madness in which peaceful speech is flagged as offensive and its purveyors banned can be attributed to the algorithmic functions of the software, the Free Thought Project has recently documented an experience with Facebook that shows how dangerously inept this company is in stopping actual criminal acts—even when they are given documented evidence and all the details necessary to do so.

Naturally, because the Free Thought Project challenges the status quo, many people out there tend to be quite vocal in their opposition to the ideas of freedom and peace which we openly support. Often times, these people will email, message, or comment wishing us ill will. This is nothing new and most of the time, we simply ignore it. However, this week, we received a message that was impossible to ignore.
