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

Tech is neutral, neither benevolent or malevolent, it is as strong as the power WE give it.
Remember when Ma Bell (Bell systems) was broken up into baby Bells after violating the Sherman act? I wonder if Google and Amazon and Facebook and all the other mega corps will share the same fate?
I would say that, from financial point of view, for me that invests in their stocks, it would be profitable to have them grow and leave intact as is.

However, from moral and pragmatic point of view, giving too much autonomy to everyone is dangerous in the long run.

Therefore, I won’t struggle with new rules of regulations, if they ever apply, and support what is good for the planet’s well being.
