Part 2: WallStreetBets, Gamestop, Reddit, and the 99% Versus Hedgefunds and the 1%
Show Notes

In Part 2 of 2, we will be discussing the current events of the stock market: Who are WallStreetBets, why did Gamestop go up so high and so quickly, why is Reddit users who are part of this wanting to HOLD and who they are up against.

Furthermore, the hedge funds have created a situation for themselves that has led to a $70 BILLION dollar loss.

I elaborate, simplify, and explain what is going on, why it's happening, and my personal thoughts on the matter.

In part 1 of 2, I will be discussing censorship and its problems, Section 230 and its powers, as well as the challenges of freedom of speech. How "hate speech" has been used as an excuse to ban groups like "WallStreetBets" from Discord and where do we draw the line from overreach and freedom.
