We need to think about building a world defined by networks governed by rules, but with no rulers.
Ultimately, the core question here is a simple one. What is a more serious threat: the ability of people to publish false claims (which have existed since humans developed the capacity to speak or write and are subject to correction), or vesting governments around the world to censor entire websites and social media postings on the ground that they have judged them to be “false” or “Fake”? Since the advent of the internet, the one danger regarded as most menacing was having states and corporations assume control over the political content that one can express.
