Biden Boys Bear Down on Big Tech With Big Unfriendly Bear Hugs (Republican Prepare Their Own Beat Downs)

In Chapter 14, The Social Ministries,” I make the point that Big Social Media has earned itself no friends in Washington D.C. despite the boatloads of PAC and campaign donations showered on both political parties. From both sides of the aisle, their  ROI on their investment has been paltry. In 2018, the left wing, represented by Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Corey Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, and other progressive presidential candidates called for all the social media giants and Amazon to either be broken up or heavily regulated.

The New “Hate Speech” is “Misinformation”

Everyone claims to love the First Amendment and well they should, because the FA is the most significant political concept since the Greeks developed the concept of democratic government. And considering what happened to Socrates, the First Amendment has been better implemented. When judging nations, the FA is the gold standard for separating first rate nations from the second rate. If your country adheres to U.S. standards of freedom of speech, you’re first rate. Like to throw nursing mothers into jail because they won’t call a guy (biologically) a gal? Second rate.
