In any democracy, people base their voting decisions on the information provided to them by the media. If this information is censored, manipulated, slanted or otherwise interfered with, people cannot make informed voting decisions.

"The media is the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power - because they control the minds of the masses."
- Malcolm Little (a.k.a. Malcolm X)

Governments, Media and Big Tech seek to impose boundaries on freedom of expression by censoring any views which they consider to fall outside of the Overton Window.

These institutions control the boundaries of this window in order to protect their own financial or political interests. This is just human nature, and it's nothing new.

"Mankind soon learn to make interested uses of every right and power which they possess, or may assume."
- Thomas Jefferson

This is unhealthy in free societies, which require open discussion so that ideas may be assessed on their merits, and the bad discarded.

Without free discussion, the best (and worst) ideas are denied to the public, causing democracy and freedom to stagnate. It is not for politicians or special interest groups to decide which ideas are good or bad. That is a right which should be reserved for the people.

"Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech."
- Benjamin Franklin

In practice, this means ignoring artificially-imposed boundaries and indexing material of which the establishment disapproves. This will inevitably include some material which may be considered to be controversial.

If you don't like exposure to heterodox or controversial ideas, may not be for you.

"If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."
- George Orwell
