Hot on the heels of retailers who have halted sales of Ivanka Trump's clothing line in protest against Trump (and free marketing buzz), the tech "resistance" against Trump got its lead from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckeberg who on Thursday posted a lengthy note "rebuking isolationist America First sentiment, and touting the merits of globalization and a global community working for innovation and progress."
In short, the CEO of the "social network", whose business model is predicated upon uninhibited globalization allowing advertisers to reach into every corner of the world with 3 second video clips, is calling for a global government. Not all that surprising.
As the Daily Beast, which first reported about Zuckerberg's post, summarizes:
Discouraged by the underlying suspicion of foreign entities, as seen during the 2016 election and the rise of President Trump, Zuckerberg wrote that he wants to refocus Facebook on helping people come together across borders.
We have to build a global community that works for everyone. I really dont have much doubt that this is the right direction to go in the long term. Part of his goal, he wrote, is to make Facebook a global community that is supportive, safe, informed, civically engaged, and inclusive.
Some more excerpts from Zuckerberg's sermon for globalization:
On our journey to connect the world, we often discuss products we're building and updates on our business. Today I want to focus on the most important question of all: are we building the world we all want?
History is the story of how we've learned to come together in ever greater numbers -- from tribes to cities to nations. At each step, we built social infrastructure like communities, media and governments to empower us to achieve things we couldn't on our own.

Walls for me - Fantastic
Walls for you - Xenophobic, racist
Every time you log on, you give Zuckerface more money to undermine our sovereignty.
Zuckerman has walls around all his compounds, but heaven forbid that the peasants have the same privilege.
Meanwhile Zuckerman helps the Butchers of Beijing censor the information the peasants get to see.
