That might be true but I was asking if she was wrong in stating that "unelected tech oligarchs should not have such massive power over global discourse."
AOChe, Omar and the like are traitorous, seditionist criminals but they're taking the Manchurian approaching to destroying this country.
You won’t like the remedy...anti-trust enforcement that regulates the free market. Your additional allies in this will be Bernie and AOC and it also requires big government.
Why do you hate capitalism?
I don't dislike anti-trust enforcement. The problem is in defining collusion or monopoly and understanding how quickly the tech world changes. Mega search and social media companies have so much influence/control over what and how information is presented to the public. The best approach to maintaining free speech and accurate information might not be to just break up the mega-companies. We need to step back and consider the big picture, not our own selfish objectives (like Bernie and AOC tend to do).
How long has it been since Microsoft was considered the evil empire that needed to be reigned in. Now it's Google, Facebook, etc. How long will it be before they're replaced by new technology or platforms. How do we develop a framework that isn't just a reactionary response to today's issues but also consider's tomorrow's potential issues?
If you haven't noticed, I'm a big fan of true capitalism.
