Government Regulation of Facebook?

The market is a ruthless regulator. Big corporations prefer government regulation because they to protect big corporations from the market, consumer choice, and upstart competitors. As the market ravages Facebook for its misdeeds, CEO Mark Zuckerberg thinks maybe “government regulations” would be a good idea. Of course he does!

I think the better question might be to observe that government is getting its fingers into Facebook, a company that's been allowed an astonishing degree of intrusion and erosion of our privacy, and ask critical questions about this new unholy relationship. Of course, govt would want to make a whole new Department centered around the Facebook corporation. I mean, right?

The problem is the bad guys, whom will con you like zuckerberg, will always be one step ahead, due to teh ignorance of the public. Knowledge is power, and especially in techs world, where the public and gov officials have very little of it. Like the cambridge analytica ceo boasted in that video sting from channel4, the congress and senate in america are very ignorant, and have no real idea how it all works. Like you, ron paul said about congress and the economy, most people on economic committees, have no idea how the economy actually worked, with the fed… Read more »

Zuckerberg has called his Facebook members, "dumb fucks". Facebook users were severely slow to react to the insult but they are finally beginning to catch on.

People: "Facebook is evil and should be regulated."
Also people when you tell them to get off Facebook: "Are you crazy?"

Zuckerberg is an agent in international jewry for global zion. Facebook is one of their greatest tools in controlling speech and expression to silence all opposition forever. Their goal has been to corral humanity into a technocracy where all speech and expression is done electronically and then monopolize that market. That was their devilish backdoor way of undermining the first amendment through less overt means. That is the jew way. Always covert. Like snakes. Because they have no honor.

Government regulations that require a certain level of algorithmic sophistication to comply… For companies like say… Oh, I don't know FACEBOOK! Sounds like a great way to use government to remain the only social network in the marketplace and squelch all of your competition once again. These companies LOVE government because the regulations always make sure that they have no one else to compete with because nobody else has the resources to comply. We should be filing anti-trust lawsuits against Facebook right now, but funny you don't hear anyone mentioning that?

Hogan's Heroes should be being studied seriously by all true Americans & reworked to show the tips to creating communication to the Free World in today's modernity. Is there books, sci-fi, that do the same?
