It shows that tech companies amassed such power that they act as the government itself. I am surprised that people aren’t outraged by this in much bigger numbers.
Population is brought to near total complacency, and digital space is used to shape opinions. We are in an era where digital landscape is more important than the real one. Especially given the lockdowns and slow down of physical reality. I had an epiphany about this in early 2018, but I never anticipated that covid would hit.
As the time goes on, this grip over what is real and what is allowed to be shared or not; will only get bigger. I hope that we end this digital totalitarianism, But people themselves are the biggest enabler of this trend.
One thing you can do, is learn how to create digital communities outside of San Francisco tech bubble. Internet is still relatively open channel.
