Most of us lived fine and survived without social media and the internet before it was discovered!
There are many positives and conveniences with these tools, but also negatives, censorship, etc. Too often we get tempted to read into something that the person writing is not saying on a post, email, etc. Most of us are not even talking on the phone anymore! We just send a quick text out.
I do believe that these big tech giants monopolies need to break up, because we are becoming their slaves and will be bowing at their mercy and their greedy price gouging. Why do you think they broke up the phone and cable companies years ago? Now Xfinity is one of the bigtech guys on the block.
I realize that we cannot become naive and out of touch with society, but our government needs to step up their game in this battle for free speech and breaking up these monopolies.
This is not only about politics, but destroying most small business and the middle class being threatened due to the conglomerates of Big Box stores and tech giants. Small business is what has made the middle class but is being squeezed like never before. The current pandemic is not helping it either.
The irony is that many businesses have to rely on big tech to make a living. We now have too much info at our fingertips.
Remember the old yellow page commercial, “Let your fingers do the walking thru the yellow pages. When is the last time you used a paper phone book? You get my drift.
The reality is that we as American citizens need to wake up because these wealthy companies have us stuck or at least at an impasse where we are at a stalemate.
Lord please wake us up. This post is not written to be political so please do not read into it! Thanks.
