Globalist UN Proposes Digital Online Compact to ‘Prevent Hate’

'The danger cannot be overstated. Social media-enabled hate speech and disinformation can lead to violence and death...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) United Nations Secretary General António Guterres announced the upcoming “Global Digital Compact,” a worldwide censorship campaign aimed at preventing so-called hate speech and disinformation in the digital space.

The Orwellian terms are often used as dogwhistles, giving totalitarian elites free rein to control and suppress any speech or criticism that they deem disagreeable or contrary to their far-left agenda.

“Digital platforms are being misused to subvert science and spread disinformation and hate to billions of people,” Guterres said, without evidence.

“The proliferation of hate and lies in the digital space is causing grave global harm,” he added. “This clear and present global threat demands clear and coordinated global action. We don’t have a moment to lose.”

According to Breitbart, the UN recently published two policy briefs outlining what global control of the internet might entail.

One, titled the “Global Digital Compact,” proclaimed the UN’s intent to impose digital equity—a dogwhistle term for Marxist collectivism through redistribution of resources—and to provide internet access across regions, gender, income, language and age groups.

“Inequality is rising,” the U.N. policy brief said.

“Enormous investments in technology have not been accompanied by spending on public education and infrastructure,” it continued. “Digital technology has led to massive gains in productivity and value, but these benefits are not resulting in shared prosperity.”

The brief also included several gripes against “hate speech,” “mis- and disinformation” and “the darker side of the digital ecosystem.”

The document proclaimed that the internet allowed for the “rapid spread of lies and hate, causing real harm on a global scale,” but neglected to provide examples of said lies and hate.

“The danger cannot be overstated. Social media-enabled hate speech and disinformation can lead to violence and death,” the document read. “The ability to disseminate large-scale disinformation to undermine scientifically established facts poses an existential risk to humanity.”

The UN also pushed platform owners to invest in artificial intelligence moderation systems—a hotly debated topic at the moment, as programmers kept bipartisan politics front of mind when writing code for ChatGPT and other AI chatbots.

“From health and gender equality to peace, justice, education, and climate action, measures that limit the impact of mis- and disinformation and hate speech will boost efforts to achieve a sustainable future and leave no one behind,” the policy paper concluded.
