    It's pretty unfortunate that the followers/subscribers of these people cause their pages to get nuked. Ultimately, FB can do what it wants as a private company. I wouldn't be surprised to start seeing more conservative activism in the form of protests, marches, etc. Tends to get more attention anyway.

    Yes, as a private company FB has the right to deny service to anyone without explanation. Which in turn creates a huge market for those discontent with FB. Eventually, platforms as Diasopa, Ello, EyeEM, Path, Vero, ProAmericaOnly, Conservapedia etc. will flourish and some will converge to help further advance the social divide and lack of civilized and mutually respectful dialogue.
    Until some tectonic economic and social cataclysm turns everything upside down with alternatives between a new Civil War or more likely dissolve of the Union and secession of many states and even counties. Ask the Soviets what happened to the USSR, do you think such development of not possible here? If so, you didn't learn well Marxism-Leninism at your college or school:)
    One of the beauty of the imperial hierarchy is that once the top is destroyed or self destroyed, there are no feedbacks to re-establish if on a smaller, local scale. For example, if California secedes from the USA, it doesn't have the needed army to prevent further secession of some counties where the majority population is disgusted with the government in Sacramento and the beach counties supporting it.
