Patrick Courrielche: Brian Amerige appears to be a near extinct breed in Silicon Valley that still believes in the free exchange of ideas. And when he tried to stand up for that principle, the virtual organism we know as Facebook went on the attack.

Brian Amerige: I was a senior employee at the company…I started to talk about the issues around content policy.

Patrick Courrielche: Brian was particularly bothered by Facebook’s new approach toward so-called “hate speech.”

Brian Amerige: Internally I started talking doing you know having one on one conversations with people I started writing a little bit about it on Facebook. Internal network which was called workplace and what I found was people didn't want to have the conversation. A lot of people felt threatened even or afraid by having the conversation majors. They thought it was hot water to talk about these things and you know I was called a hatemonger by by more than one employee. Quite a number actually for just trying for questioning the wisdom of a hate speech policy. And you know when I started to see that where it's like well I mean not only is this going in the wrong direction but I can't even talk about the fact that I think it's going in the wrong direction without being called a bigot without being called a racist without being called a hate monger. You know that's where I realized like this is a lot more serious than even just the policy.
