"Harnessing the Power of Friendship"

leave a comment »

Facebook is “harnessing the power of friendship” so suicidal people can get “help” – that is, it’s ordering users to call the police when any user mentions suicide, so that such users are (a) denied the opportunity to talk about suicide, and (b) forcibly prevented form committing suicide.

To get an idea of what the euphemism “help” refers to, see, e.g.:

Please don’t help enforce unethical laws or policies like Facebook’s.
