    They're not against conservative content, they're just against non advertiser friendly content. All youtubers that make many different forms of content are getting their videos secretly demonetized for the dumbest reasons because advertisers don't want to put their ads on anything.

    So youtube is rolling out all these features to control the type of content people make so they can get more money.

    Advertising killed YouTube, I was giving a tedtalks based lesson and a Clearblue ad decided to ruin my lecture.

    wrong. pulling the advertisers was just the first step in an effort to hurt 'extremist' channels. advertisers wouldnt care as long as the number of views were high. YT has the ADL involved in monitoring and censoring YT now. did you read the article? conservative is "alt right" and anything "alt-right" is now getting buried, having their subscribers removed randomly, and flat out censored. most truth channels are wiped out.

    But that's also happening to non conservative channels as well.

    I think poly's key word was "truth". Most truth sites are right leaning, but if they happen to be left leaning then the hammer will fall on them as well. YouTube ain't got no time for people to tell the truth.

    i have never seen a left leaning truth channel or website. it would be a contradiction to truth.

    im not saying that a truth site/YT channel needs to be conservative or pro trump, but i cannot imagine any truth channel supporting the liberal left after all we saw in 2016 and their agenda in the last few years. it would be an immediate red flag.

    That was very interesting. This is the link to a site that the article mentions. I can't figure it out entirely, but it seemed like it was worth pointing out.

    "The good news is that many have seen this day coming and have made moves to combat it. One such move is the social media platform Steemit.

    This uncensorable network is a blockchain-based social media platform where anyone can post and read what they want — and even earn money. It works in a similar fashion to Reddit, however, instead of being banned or censored for posts, if other users like your content, you make money."

    https://steemit.com/@tftproject

    **edit to add that the Steemit project has created a user video uploading website that is connecting with the Steemit site so that the same rules apply that allow articles or videos to profit when someone like the post. I don' t really understand it all that well, but it seems really interesting if anyone is interested.

    "Last words

    While I personally believe that decentralization is the future, don't get your hopes too high yet. Competing with YouTube is an heavy task that cannot be done by one man. My intent with this project was to practically demonstrate the possibility of decentralized video on top of IPFS. It works, but we don't know how well it will work in the long-term. YouTube also has a lot of extra features that makes the experience superior. What I built, represents maybe 1% of the work required to have something that can compete with YouTube. I built some walls, but there is no insulation, or painting, and the whole building might collapse at any time."

    There is still a reason to have hope.
