LinkedIn Bully

Supposedly, I am a LinkedIn bully now for correcting people when they are wrong. A scary future of ever-narrowing groupthink lies ahead when we cannot engage in a dialectic in which the person without strong arguments for a supposition has no leg to stand on. We cannot let technology companies arbitrate what is right or wrong.

Saliently, you should know that the post referenced in the complaint by LinkedIn has since been removed. Questioning the integrity of the opposer who must have removed it after filing the complaint.

Freedom of speech requires, like all freedom, paradoxical rules. Freedom does not need managing. Its rules do. Either you leave freedom as a free-for-all, which is not recommended, or the government in each sovereignty establishes the rules of freedom of speech by which technology companies can arbitrate.

To tag my polite-yet-firm and fair-and-balanced responses as bullying merely supports the downgrade of a society into a cascade of coddling. A subject social psychologist and professor at NYU, Jonathan Haidt, describes in his book:  The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure

Grow a thicker skin if you posit a theory you want the world on the internet listening in and learning to embrace. We cannot all be yay-sayers of grandiose false positivity. We must get real to save us from ourselves, as bullying as it may seem to people dependent on safe-spaces.

Let’s lead the world by example with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
