       This idea will be a great success once it has categorized all texts critical of it into the "unacceptable" category, alongside terrorists, racists, paedophiles and cancelled vloggers.   

       Freedom, progress and creativity are all contingent on not everyone using the same taxonomy. People are not entitled to their own facts, but they are absolutely and crucially entitled to their own meta-data whereby they organise those facts.   

       If this component starts with a common set of assumptions about what belongs where, then it will tend to suppress diversity of thought. If, on the other hand, it relies on each individual's early choices as training data, then it's still problematic, because of the echo-chamber effect. In either case, it will reduce the likelihood of someone seeing an unexpected juxtaposition which might lead to a new train of thought.
