New Zealand, France plan bid to tackle online extremism

In the wake of the Christchurch attack, New Zealand said on Wednesday that it would work with France in an effort to stop social media from being used to promote terrorism and extremism. NZ PM Jacinda Ardern said she will co-chair a meeting with French President Macron in Paris on May 15 that will seek to have world leaders and CEOs of tech companies agree to a pledge to tackle such content.

Arden is as embarassing as that cuckold leader of Canada. Both are emotional leftist zealots. A prime minister can't go around asking " can I give you a hug?", it's weak and pathetic.

What's to talk about? The governments of both countries will simply stop tech companies from investing in research and infrastructure by scaring them with punitive fines and regulations. Despite doing some censorship of its own, there's a reason Google does nearly all of its work inside the US. The regulation-happy EU would strangle them.
