Vanity: Ideas on how to crush tech tyranny
Free Republic ^ | August 6, 2018 | AAABEST

Posted on 08/06/2018 3:41:55 PM PDT by AAABEST

Okay, I'm the biggest anarcho-capitalist on this board, but this is what happens when capitalism starts producing zombies. The zombies must be put down.

Legions of users subverting the platform can cost them greatly. Maybe a friendly judges or pols can shove something HUGE up their ass.

They have budgets larger than entire nations, and they've basically declared war on us.

Waiting for the first person to make the argument “they’re a private company”... as if the constitution would permit 3 companies to control the entire nations discourse.

You’re seeing the exact same playbook every socialist overthrow of a country has gone through.

Demonization, ostacizarion, individual attacks against power holders (in sure you’ve heard of a few recently - Papa John, Steve Wynn) all the whole a steady drumbeat of propaganda dividing “the people” along wit indoctrination in schools (that’s how it happened in China and Venezuela)

We’ve made the students fearful of freedom and making their own choices (40+ year olds afraid of “adulting”) then they’ve upended social order where men are women and women are men - and at the top are the self-selected elites telling you what to think because only they know the answers. Except nothing ever gets done.

We’re ar war people.

That would be a defacto cartel and is illegal in this country.

Companies PUBLICLY TRADED in the stock market where shareholders are involved are no longer "private companies", RIGHT?!!!

These are not merely public companies, these are UTILITIES that should be subjected to the same regulation.

1. Stop using their platforms and contributing to their revenues.

2. Cancel your accounts, if you have one, and do so LOUDLY. Make sure they know you’re leaving and make sure their advertisers know you’re leaving.

3. We need to find a way to start our own media.

Maybe we can get FR to add some features? Video? Messenger? Email?

I know my family would pay for these if they were offered through FR.

No online presence = out-of-business for many these days. One little snowflake commie with a moderator button can put an entire organization under.

This is not NOT WHAT OUR CONSTITUTION INTENDED.

Is there a reliable source setting out

[1] the names of the equity owners of the backbone of the internet and,

[2]the names of the corporate entities who control access to the internet, but who are not equity owners.

They’re not a monopoly - that’s one company holding all the cards - but you can bet they’ve all colluded together to price fix and share markets along with acting as a unified voice when it comes to DNC concerns.

“We’re ar war people.”

Yes. And the minute our side looks like it’s winning, there’ll be net silence. Lonnnnnng web delays, lost mappings, massive DOS attacks, malware explosions, talk radio disruptions, lots of muffling.

Did you label that photo? If so, great job!

I’ve seen it everywhere but having the perps IDed really increases the ‘wow’ factor.

There is no stopping them. They are the gatekeepers. They are blocking all the entrances and will prevent all who do not conform from entering and will purge those already inside. The reality is that they will have to be brought to heel with the boot of the very government they are attempting to control and bring to bear on us. I am not certain that this can be remedied short of a hostile takeover via the monopoly rules to break them up. The tyranny of these leftists will eventually manifest itself, as it always does, with the slaughter of millions. The question becomes, how many of them are we willing to take with each of us. And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?

Right here.

I don't condone FB for doing this, BTW.

However...

Here's what you can do.

Think up a nifty website name.

Go to godaddy.com or another host to register.

Hire some programmers.

Create your own social media network.

FR could have been what FB is now, and it still can be.

It is called the world wide web consortium...or w3c for short...those companies control it all and conspire against all of us for better or for worse.

You don’t have to be a Monopoly to fall under Anti-Trust.
All you need is a controlling interest with no viable competitors.

This is why Intel kept AMD alive.
It kept the Gov from breaking them up.
