YouTube Is Censoring the Left from the Left

October 1, 2021

YouTube is hiding videos in my history, probably for censorship purposes.

I was searching my YouTube history for the video, “Capitalism is a friggin’ SCAM that’s making us poor” using the keyword “capitalism.” It showed me twenty videos I had watched as far back as November 14, 2017, but not the one I wanted. When I remembered the creator’s name as NonCompete and searched for that, it showed me that I watched the video on February 17, 2019. There was no typo. Clearly YouTube is playing censorship games, which explains why I can’t find that video that explains that Stalin didn’t kill anywhere near as many people as the right likes to claim and explaining why the death tolls in French prison camps were far worse than in the gulags.

I am aware that it’s legal for a private company to do this, but “legal” and “ethical” are not as closely correlated as decent people would like, and I find this extremely unethical, in addition to the atrocious customer service one has come to expect from large internet companies like Google (which owns YouTube) and Facebook (which owns Instagram).

I wanted the video to reply to a post on Quora, “My father is a communist. How can I convince him that communism doesn’t work?“, but since I mentioned it, I might as well post it here.
