So facebook is now going to referee people getting involved in politics across borders ?

I guess this means Greenpeace is illegal ?  Nothing is global ?

What ?
  Facebook policy is not the law. Greenpeace, despite facebook, is still legal in many places. Nothing is global. Should I, for example, have some sort of inherent right to **** around with referendums in Ireland? Are not the Irish perfectly capable of figuring things out for themselves?  Do they need the Namibian Church of Everlasting Miserys' opinion on the matter?
