The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) held a conference this week to develop guidelines it aims to implement globally that would restrict online speech.
UNESCO boasted Feb. 23, “The first-ever conference to discuss draft global guidelines for regulating digital platforms ended on Thursday in Paris with a call to uphold the right to seek and receive information in the face of rising disinformation online.” But in UNESCO’s Orwellian worldview, free speech is somehow compatible with censorship.
Over 4,300 people participated in the three-day Internet for Trust Conference, UNESCO announced. The organization tweeted, “When misinformation & disinformation spread, facts are undermined & public trust is no longer there. This makes it much more difficult for the @UN & its agencies to make the world a better place. The digital world needs to be regulated.” And who better than the United Nations, whichpanders to Communist China and Palestinianterrorists? What a joke.
The UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay blathered about the global common good—which, apparently, includes restricting free speech. “‘The blurring of boundaries between true and false, the highly-organized denial of scientific facts, the amplification of disinformation and conspiracies – these did not originate on social networks. But, in the absence of regulation, they flourish there much better than the truth,’” Azoulay rambled.
