The 2020 Election showed us just how much power Big Tech and Social Media have. Not only can they use their algorithms to divide our nation into echo chambers and limit what news… I mean, propaganda, we see, but they also have the ability to censor and de-platform anybody who does not hold to the mainstream narrative as put forth by the Democrat Party.
When we talk about rigging the 2020 Election, a huge contributing factor was the disinformation and propaganda pushed and promoted by companies like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Obviously, the natural result is to want to make sure that never happens again and the easiest solution in many people’s minds is to have the government step in and establish regulations that restrict their ability to fix any future elections.
This is exactly what Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is referring to when he posed the idea of having government regulations established and forced on these Silicon Valley tech companies. The problem is that this is exactly what Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey want. During their Senate hearings last year, they made it clear that they welcomed government oversight and regulation into their industry. Why would they want this?
Government regulations consistently are a hardship only on small startups and mom-and-pop shops. We saw this played out for all to see with the extreme restrictions and regulations in California in response to the COVID-19 “pandemic.” Countless small businesses closed permanently due to the extreme measures being taken. Only the big companies that could absorb the insane new costs in doing business could continue to stay open. Essentially, it eliminated the competition for these big corporations.
The same thing will happen in the tech world if the government steps in. New regulations will restrict the ability for startups to innovate and come up with free market solutions to the censorship of Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter.
The reason we find ourselves in the mess that we are in today is not because of a lack of rules and regulations from the government, but because conservatives refused to innovate and create superior alternatives to Silicon Valley. Instead, we relied on them to the point where we had no other options than these Leftist Social Justice Warrior companies. Then they pulled the rug out from under us during the 2020 Election and everyone acts shocked that this happened.
Moving forward, we must innovate. We must protect ourselves and the freedom that has made America great for the past few centuries. Stop relying on Leftist companies. Spend your time and money supporting pro-America and Conservative companies. If there’s not a company worthy of your support, maybe it’s time to start one. That’s the American way.
