Hi Kathleen:

You raise a number of good and important points in this essay. Freedom for the oppressed to communicate about injustice (by reporting on facts) is important. The ability for people to tailor their reading and communication experiences is important. What I am struggling with is Substack's content guidelines which, among other things, prohibit hate speech (although they are somewhat specific). The end game of what national socialism became was intolerance, suppression, eugenics and elimination of entire populations of people through propaganda. I have to assume that anyone who is a self-described Nazi or borrows from its playback will promote those same things and this should be contrary to Substack's stated content guidelines, which they don't appear to be following. Would like Substack to explain why they aren't enforcing this.
