Facebook and Twitter may have a leftist friend in the Oval Office, but the government of Hungary is not fooled by the tyranny of big technology.
“The Hungarian government has confirmed that it will legislate against Big Tech censorship online, declaring that ‘we must fight for our digital freedom!'” reports Breitbart News.
“Today, anyone can be arbitrarily disconnected from online space without any kind of official, transparent or fair procedure, or the opportunity for redress,” said Judit Varga, the Minister of Justice in Prime Minister. “Digital damage inflicted deliberately out of political or ideological interests can also not occur without repercussions in Hungary anymore!.”
The government is following Poland’s lead in establishing a source of redress for users who feel they have been unfairly censored or banned.
