Obviously I'm against any of the censorship, but I'm not convinced that there's no truth to the idea that ideological filtering & echo chambers can lead to extreme beliefs. We're only like a decade, if that, into seeing what the information overload of social media does to people. Having a device on you at all times, with a little world in it where everyone agrees with & normalizes your beliefs that perhaps no one you know irl holds, while completely disconnected from the physical body, from legitimate human relationships, and so on, must have some unique effects (or at least unique in their severity).
