An EU court order has declared they can now order Facebook to remove or censor posts they don't like even if the post was made by someone outside Europe, in a landmark ruling. At the very least, China, despite being extremely authoritarian on internet censorship, restricts themselves to only restricting the internet freedoms of their own nation and their limited sphere of influence around China. The EU, on the other hand, takes a much more globalized approach to censorship, even possibly violating the constitutional rights of US citizens.
According to the European Court of Justice, any individual country can order Facebook to remove posts, photographs, and videos, and even restrict access to these materials to people all over the world. So any EU country has the right to instruct Facebook to take down posts it doesn't like in regions beyond its jurisdiction.
The controversial ruling came about after Eva Glawischnig-Piesczek of the Austrian Green party sued Facebook, demanding that the platform delete unflattering content about her on Facebook, which hurt her feelings, labeling her a “lousy traitor,” “corrupt oaf,” and member of a “fascist party.” She insisted that Facebook prevent the content from being viewed worldwide.
The creeping censorship of the EU only serves to highlight the scheming machinations of the politicians trying to disrupt and reverse the democratic mandate for Brexit in the UK.
Despite a clear democratic mandate for Brexit, remain politicians have been scheming around the clock to find a way to subvert the final result of the EU referendum. And given this new landmark ruling it's not difficult to see the kind of culture of censorship and election gerrymandering they want to impose, to implement the kind of global order people like Glawischnig-Piesczek desire.
