"Free Speech" is not the issue here. Even mastodon instances have a content policy (rightfully so).
The problem is "tech platforms oligopolies", created by unregulated free market. But neoliberals don't like this narrative, especially now that their allies get de-platformed.
Exactly, that's the issue right now. I see a turn towards a discussion on "how these platforms will be moderated, by whom, what's the role of AI and/or qualified professionals on this process, etc". Although all these points are valid, the elephant in the room is the technology sector oligopolies.
