Forget tech censorship for a moment. If you don't trust Facebook with your information, wait 'til you meet their contractors. The lovely humans at Vox Media won’t tell you, but it sounds like criminals are handling content moderation. Plus, how this relates to Jacques Ellul's 1954 book The Technological Society.
Clarification: According to Ellul, technique precedes and subsumes economic systems such as capitalism and communism. Thus, Marx had it backwards.

(Read at least the introduction to the English edition.)
This is a wonderful interview/portrait of French philosopher and visionary Jacques Ellul, who considered 'la technique' to be all-encompassing. In 1990, the team of ReRun Productions visited Ellul and in five subsequent days, exhaustive interview sessions were held in his old mansion in Pessac, France. 'The Betrayal by Technology' is one of the very few existing filmed recordings of Jacques Ellul speaking. What price do we pay for efficiency and 'progress' in a technological society? Does technological progress make mankind freer or does it further enslave? What human values that allowed people to make sense of their existence have vanished and been replaced with efficiency?
