For every regulation imposed there are 10 ways to get around it, and Technocrats at Facebook have proven themselves to be very agile. Free market forces are the best way to curtail Facebook by simply refusing to pay money to it. Meanwhile, many other alternatives are popping up that will take market share away from Facebook.
Facebook’s recent crackdown on advertising it considers political has already affected news publishers and small businesses like hair salons and day-care centers. Now a gospel…
This is a very important story to understand because Facebook, et. al., have found a new tool to destroy alternative media: ‘fact checking.’ Facebook’s third-party fact checkers hardly know one end of truth from the other, but they make hard assertions in spite of it.

Free Speech has been dealt a lethal blow in England, where an activist reporter was railroaded into prison after covering a trial while broadcasting to social media. His hour-long livestream to Facebook was watched over 250,000 time within hours of posting. The judge was enraged that Robinson encouraged people to share: “I regard it as a serious aggravating feature that he was encouraging others to share it and it had been shared widely. That is the nature of the contempt.”
As AI facial analysis algorithms proliferate, they will be implemented in every conceivable application and circumstance. However, such software will never be ‘certified’ as 100% effective, creating social chaos as accusations fly. Technocrat scientists who invent this stuff have no view of ethics or societal implications.
