Re: Have the Big Tech Giants got too much power ?

No. Big Tech don't have too much power. They've got exactly as much power as the governments allow.

If governments don't like it, they can legislate. E.g. make FB, Twatter etc. as accountable as print newspapers. Here's what a British marxist thinks... https://www.spiked-online.com/podcas...can-democracy/

I do find it funny that Parler has been removed from the Play Store and the Apple on line app store. And that Amazon are terminating Parler's contract for server space. Funny though - these right wing yanks prefer that private companies have the decision of life and death, not their government. On the other hand their freedom of speech? Oh, they want their government to have that right.
