    Big-tech behavior- monopolistic, arrogant, loose security and selling personal details are all very unpleasant examples.
    I understand the argument that they are free to make conditions for the use of their property, but I have doubts about the legality of unlimited contracts and biased enforcement.
    Still, if they get rough treatment from the FTC and Justice Dept then they deserve no sympathy.

      I agree. I want the platform to be managed fairly without bias. They are not doing that. They didn't do this when they were small and growing. All they have to do to avoid government meddling is to return to fair treatment without bias. (Of course government has its own anti-liberty bias, too.)

        They ignore free market values: Don't screw your customers...that is where your income comes from; Don't get in bed with government nor politicians or you WILL become their slaves; Do business as if you were the customer...that is simple stupid and is so basic it boggles the mind.

    There is a lot that facebook should be criticized for, and some of that should legislation protecting the rights of the individual in a context of new technology. But that does not include government censorship or Democrats' abusing companies with anti-trust laws that should not exist at all.

    Ironically, facebook is itself calling for government censorship through "guidelines" on "extremist" speech. But in order to maintain a principle, it is necessary to defend the rights of its least attractive practitioners.
