The Perfect Storm For All the Internet

In 1994 the Internet was allowed to become commercialized. From the perfect ivory tower of and Hippie Culture of love, honesty, and making the world a better place they powers allowed commercial activity for the first time.

Ooops the grandfathers of the internet, who along with others knew full well what “Smart thinkers” were capable of  ie: the bomb…… they let the little thing called security get away from them… so yeah the net will N E V E R be secure PERIOD!

AND since the same people don’t think regulation is of much use because (any excuse you want)  …. you know they’ve only NOW come to say out loud that those liars and thieves who were supposed to “do no evil” and would be sure to “police themselves” might in fact act like the criminals  celebrated by wall street

Imagine all those original fathers of the internet with all their IQ points,  educations, national experience and  those awards!

WHAT did they actually do to all of us? Please remind me. . . . .

Co-Founder of Pro-Trump Campus Group CAUGHT impersonating a real lawyer.

Man Accused of Phony Lawyer Act Was Co-Founder of Pro-Trump Campus Group Before he allegedly posed as a lawyer.

Lambert was in college when he co-founded Students for Trump, and as a leader of the group, he appeared on TV and shared a stage with Milo Yiannopoulos.

A Tennessee man charged by New York prosecutors with pretending to be a Manhattan lawyer and taking thousands from would-be clients was the co-founder of Students for Trump, a national group that mobilized college campuses in the run-up to the 2016 election and plans to do so again in 2020.

It turns out that Lambert, who solicited legal work through the fake name “Eric Pope,” is the co-founder of Students For Trump, a campus conservative group.

Fournier has appeared on many news networks including Fox News, CNN and MSNBC to advocate his views.

The group enjoyed the backing of Guido Lombardi, an Italian real estate developer who served as the Trump campaign’s middleman with various prominent figures in right-wing political parties in Europe.

Students for Trump is a registered political committee, bound by FEC reporting requirements.

“The failure to timely file a complete report may result in civil money penalties, an audit or legal enforcement action,” the FEC notices warn.

THE FOUR WOMEN WHO ARE SAVING DEMOCRACY #Antitrust #Law #Fail

THE FOUR WOMEN WHO ARE SAVING DEMOCRACY

#Antitrust #Law #Fail Kills Our Democracy

Antitrust law is failing to secure our freedom, our markets, our right to self-determination, our competition, and our fundamental rights.

Lina Kahn  Amazon’s Antitrust Paradox, which showed how Ronald Reagan’s antitrust policies, inspired by ideological extremists at the University of Chicago’s economics department, had created a space for abusive monopolists who could crush innovation, workers’ rights, and competition without ever falling afoul of orthodox antitrust law.

Can Antitrust Law Rein in Facebook’s Data-Mining Profit Machine? ~ Dina Srinivasan

The Antitrust Case Against Facebook: a turning point in the debate over Big Tech and monopoly ~  CORY DOCTOROW

Shoshana Zuboff’s Surveillance Capitalism machine learning creates devastating behavior modification tools that allow tech companies to manipulate us so thoroughly that we’re in danger of losing our free will.

Srinivasan shows how Facebook came to dominate our online discourse through activities that would have been prohibited under pre-Reagan theories of antitrust, and how, prior to these monopolistic tactics, Facebook was not able to conduct surveillance on its users, having to contend with multiple, bruising PR disasters and user revolts when it tried to do so.

Moreover, Facebook’s monopoly has enabled a series of moves that worsened its impact on our democracy and our markets: once Facebook became the dominant means by which people learned about the news, media companies were forced to use Facebook to promote their work, and to put Facebook tracking beacons (AKA “Like buttons”) on every article, giving Facebook the power to build ever widening dossiers on 2.3 billion users.

And since Facebook also became the dominant means by which users discovered many kinds of products, merchants also put Like buttons and engaged in other surveillant integrations with Facebook, allowing Facebook to monopolize intelligence about ad performance — that is, when an click on a Facebook ad yielded up a sale, Facebook often knew about it — and this allowed the company to charge more for ads, and to tighten its grip over the ad marketplace.
