Facebook’s size and scope has drawn plenty of concern over the course of the last few months, as a plethora of states have begun investigating the social media behemoth for antitrust violations.
The site itself is as well populated as any on the internet. A vast majority of web traffic travels through Facebook, day in and day out, with the site generating their immense wealth through harvesting the data and content of its users. This could garner enormous power for Facebook, were they to allow the platform to perform without bias, effectively turning the social media site into the world’s most advanced algorithm for humanity.
Instead, those residing in the Facebook Ivory Tower have chosen to skew the site hard to the left in hopes of then skewing the world also hard to the left. They are the funhouse mirror of society in that way, and there doesn’t appear to be any way yet to stop them.
This liberal lean is completely obvious, almost brazen, by the way. Facebook simply doesn’t care if we know what they’re doing, as they’ve so far remained invincible.
Now, atop this mighty perch, they are threatening to sue the US government should Liz Warren win the 2020 election.
Leaked audio comments from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg include him saying that the tech company would likely have no choice but to sue the U.S. government to stave off being broken up if Elizabeth Warren becomes president.
“You have someone like Elizabeth Warren thinks that the right answer is to break up the companies … I mean, if she gets elected president then I would bet that we will have a legal challenge, and I would bet that we will win the legal challenge,” Zuckerberg is quoted as saying in two Q&A sessions with Facebook employees during July.
Zuckerberg then intimated his own self worth in a cringeworthy way.
“And does that still suck for us? Yeah. I mean, I don’t want to have a major lawsuit against our own government. I mean, that’s not the position that you want to be in when you’re, you know, I mean … It’s like, we care about our country, and want to work with our government and do good things. But look, at the end of the day, if someone’s going to try to threaten something that existential, you go to the mat and fight.”
The idea that Facebook’s imminent breakup is “existential” belies Zuckerberg’s own self-righteousness in ways that rival even the most proficient narcissists.
