FarceBook: The Stupid Face of Tyranny

Today, Facebook suspended the Natural News account after it posted a quote by Mohandas Gandhi, leader of India's independence movement and an advocate of non-violent protest. Here's the quote:

Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.

Mohandas Gandhi, Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth, page 446.

Inflammatory, eh!

These techies really are geniuses — at getting money, that is. Otherwise, LOL.

Well, actually, it's not funny. They seem to have the mentality of the Gestapo. 

As Natural News commented:

This historical quote was apparently too much for Facebook's censors to bear. They suspended our account and gave us a "final warning" that one more violation of their so-called "community guidelines" would result in our account being permanently deactivated.

They then demanded we send them a color copy of a "government issued identification" in order to reactivate our account. ...

The tyrannical mentality of Zucks and co. becomes evident when one realizes that Ghandi's statement about the British disarming Indians reflected Ghandi's belief, shared by the US Congress which passed the Second Amendment to the Constitution,* in the right of a free people to deploy violence in defense against an oppressive government. Thus, in his Doctrine of the Sword, Ghandi wrote:

I do believe that, where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence. Thus when my eldest son asked me what he should have done, had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908, whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defended me, I told him that it was his duty to defend me even by using violence. ...
* The Second Amendment to the US Constitution states that: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." That India was not a "free State", was of course, the reason the Brits denied Indians the right to bear arms. Likewise, today, Ameria is not a free state, hence application of the First Amendment to the US constitution, recognizing the right of free speech is ignored with impunity by the techie tyrants.
