Summit reports: He has joined with global leaders like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron to promote the “Christchurch Call,” which demands countries and social media giants “clamp down on hate content” in response to the New Zealand mosque shooting.
During an interview with CNBC, Levy praised New Zealand’s effort to combat “hate” following the attack.
“Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern … (made) a very moving speech regarding how the hatred and speech of hate are contaminating the social network(s), and I believe that this is a landmark in how people will now operate and how some discussions will be quickly erased from the social networks,” he said.
As we previously reported, part of combating this “hate” in New Zealand includes police making home visits to citizens to grill them on their political beliefs.
And as ever, “hateful content” coincidentally looks almost identical to ‘expressing opinions which go against the status quo’.
