Ban ALL calls for violence on Facebook

Ban ALL calls for violence on Facebook

We accept that the corporate role of Facebook is to mine commercially valuable data on demographics in return for this platform to connect with people, express certain views and share content we feel inspires, informs or entertains. Its ban on inciting violence is vital regardless of context or location.
A degree of propaganda is inevitable within the context of free speech but social media cannot be allowed to be weaponised.

Why is this important?

To permit any form of incitement to violence is extremely dangerous. To enable expressions of outrage is a valuable service that acts as a 'safety valve' in times of trouble. To extend that service to enable incitement to violence is a dangerous declaration that acts as a match to a powder keg.
