Paul Robinson — Cui bono?

The real reason behind the push for censorship of social media.
I’m not a great fan of Marxist philosophy, but one thing it has got right is the need to be sceptical when faced by what academics like to call ‘normative’ claims, and to be aware that such claims often hide a bid for power. When faced by such a claim, one should always ask ‘Cui bono?’ – who benefits?...
Not just Marxist philosophy. Anyone with a working crap detector knows this intuitively. It's just being street-smart.
