Big Tech and Big Government

While we weren't watching and with their direct complicity, Big Tech became a Big Government public utility.

  The cover story that they're private companies is nonsense, or at least no longer true in an absolute sense. Monopoly oligarchs have set themselves up in convenient easy chairs, with plausible deniability and ongoing campaigns to maintain their status.  The ability of people in Congress to ask them questions, as the entire nation witnessed on TV, is near zero. The ability of Congress to get hard answers from the Tech oligarchs is below zero, they got snow jobs. This is largely indicative of the fact that Big Tech is in control, not Congress.

When outfits can prevent the U.S. president from addressing the electorate while he is still in office, or candidates from freely discussing any subject of their own choosing, or the medical establishment from circulating news about medical news, cures or palliatives for a plague, and the outfits are deliberately spreading misinformation and censoring real information on anything they wish, they are in every sense the new telephone company, network TV, the U.S. Postal Service and newsprint all rolled into one. By a trick of fate they have §230 for protection, never intended to be thus. Turn on the lights and face the fact. Do not try to say this to the nation on TV, social media or in newspapers, you will be erased by "private companies," or worse, put into a world of hurt, if you get a glimmer of light.
