Mark Zuckerberg is rich off my data, your data, my interest, your interest, my ideas, your ideas. And he skirts liability as a publisher arguing it is a public utility, in his private control.
And now to ensure the status quo of their "democracy" the US has weaponized his platform against every other society out there.
They've injected themselves into the political process. Their monopoly does constitute a real present danger to free speech, freedom of movement, expression, diversity of thought & the stability of world financial markets. And they are above the law.
They have proved themselves above the law, beyond the reach of legislators, regulators or mortal men. And the fact is we can not keep pretending we have a functional society with this malignancy at the heart of it.
They couldn't have done this without the aid of complicit media platforms & willing politicians.
Make no mistake about this, the US media monopolies have declared war on us the people.
Mainstreet cannot survive Wall Street protecting this pariah.
They're publicly targeting their detractors. (don't follow this link)
And now we're getting privately polled Facebook political candidates not just in the US but everywhere.
There is a direct line from SCL, AIQ and PALANTIR to Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, we know this. And while a regular company would be penalised for spying on politicians or endangering democracy, Facebook is rewarded.
How many pieces of evidence do we need?
US tech giants are too big to fail, too big to function and too big for any common good. And US regulatory bodies are helpless, unwilling or downright complicit when they fail to act against them. This starts and ends with what constitutes a public utility.
In January 2017 private US media companies weaponized their platform to destroy the regulations governing their companies, they committed crime in broad daylight and we did nothing, they destroyed the free Web and the world did nothing.
And now they're coming for your thoughts.
These guys👇 with this lack of respect for privacy, laws and Democratic oversight, now gave the tools to invade your mind.

The rich want to force police & law enforcement personnel into thinking this a matter of "us versus them".
I implore everyone of you no matter your prior political stance, your career or cultural background to carefully consider where you personally stand on this issue. And whether the world they are building for us offers the space for you to grow roots in it?
Again; they are targeting their detractors. They are targeting those investigating their crimes, and they are silencing anyone that use their "public utilities" to warn the general public. Monopoly is antithetical to free societies and we know this.

"Ultimately, the DOJ’s position would place the president essentially above the law: The DOJ has held that the president can’t be indicted, and if Congress can’t access evidence of presidential malfeasance as part of an impeachment inquiry,"

"then there would virtually be no legal mechanism for holding him to account.

To keep the evidence from Congress, the Justice Department is seeking to overturn a critical Nixon-era case that allowed the Watergate grand jury to turn over evidence to congressional-"

"-investigators as part of an impeachment inquiry. The government’s “extraordinary position” made Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell of the District Court for the District of Columbia say, “Wow.”"

"She then further wondered why the Department of Justice was “resisting giving to the U.S Congress (information that has) already been shared with foreign government officials.”

“I think it would be interesting to know in this context,” Howell said."

"The creators of the site need do very little bar fiddle with the programme. In the main, they simply sit back and watch as millions of Facebook addicts voluntarily upload their ID details, photographs and lists of their favourite consumer objects."

"Once in receipt of this vast database of human beings, Facebook then simply has to sell the information back to advertisers, or, as Zuckerberg puts it in a recent blog post, "to try to help people share information with their friends about things they do on the web".

"And indeed, this is precisely what's happening. On November 6 last year, Facebook announced that 12 global brands had climbed on board. They included Coca-Cola, Blockbuster, Verizon, Sony Pictures and Condé Nast. All trained in marketing bullshit of the highest order,-"

"With Facebook Ads, our brands can become a part of the way users communicate and interact on Facebook," said Carol Kruse, vice president, global interactive marketing, the Coca-Cola Company."
