It's 1984

No, Trump is not Big Brother... Big Tech is. Which is to say, Big Left.

https://patriotpost.us/articles/59733-1984-on-steroids

All the elements are there... and getting worse every minute.

2018 is a leftist 1984...

Will the nation fight back, or mindlessly embrace the all-encompassing ambitions of our virtue-signaling, data-mining, privacy-crushing would-be overlords? Ambitions best exemplified by a quote, courtesy of Google CEO Eric Schmidt. “Google policy on a lot of these things,” Schmidt says, “is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”

Not quite. “You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty, and then we shall fill you with ourselves.” —George Orwell, 1984

In Orwell’s 1984 the one real lesson was “all of the animals are equal it’s just some are more equal than others”. When one surveys today’s society are there any words that were more prophetic or true?

Taxing big tech is just

Taxing big tech is just adding a tick to the dog. It doesn't help train your dog.

Now, breaking up the big tech companies is one idea that has a chance. Censorship won't work if there are other options. It only works because they have monopoly - in Google's case, 90% of the search traffic. That's why it's usually Government that engages in censorship.

Big Left? Draw a circle around that and then a straight line back to George Bush, The unPATRIOTic ACT and the fear everything, big government will protect you crowd.

Calvin agreed ,but could you add something that would make it more so

The big tech entities seem to be meeting the needs of many and have created products

Now that the leftists control

Now that the leftists control the FBI and CIA, the Patriot Act is being leveraged to support the same goals as the corporate leftists at Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc., etc.

Don't think it's true? Brennan actually voted for a Communist. How the hell did he get a clearance? And the moles inside the FBI were exposed when a couple of them (a *couple*) got kicked off the Mueller investigation for pronouncements so biased as to be impossible to ignore.

Stossel: The "Creepy Line"

Stossel: The "Creepy Line"

John Stossel's take on the Big Tech censorship controversy:

https://patriotpost.us/opinion/59831-the-creepy-line

“Whatever the assumptions are that Google operates under are going to be the filters that determine how the world is simplified and presented.”

The Government is involved

The Government is involved too...

https://patriotpost.us/opinion/59837-when-can-americans-be-arrested-in-r...

In other words, unless an American can prove that there was no probable cause for the police to arrest him for any crime whatsoever, the police can arrest him in retaliation for exercising his right to free speech.

I suppose as impractible as this is in some cases if one does not approach what maybe considered, as at the"creepy line " with their offering
the problem isn't an issue. Stossel even acknowleges he realizes what they do to him.

As for the Iron Man case , if one has seen the event and the activities encountered ,it is probably a case of individual being a obnoxious ashole rising to the probable cause level of action.
