Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said Wednesday he believes the government has not done a sufficient job of enforcing anti-trust laws, but was noncommittal about breaking up tech giants.
Brown was asked on BuzzFeed’s “AM to DM” if the government should break up big tech companies like Amazon and Facebook.
“I don’t know,” Brown responded. “I would say this: I’m not a lawyer, but I have noticed that over the years government hasn’t been nearly aggressive enough on anti-trust issues.”
In December 2017, The Verge published a table about how much Congress members had received from telecom companies. No wonder government hasn’t been “nearly aggressive enough” on anti-trust issues with them.
In fact, U.S. legislators have practically made it so that tech companies can do whatever they want now. This includes forcing the installation of harmful and invasive technology throughout our communities and in front of our homes due to federally promoted campaigns the “Race for 5G”, “Smart Cities”, and “Internet of Things” (IoT) and more. Legislators have also made it so that utility companies can force the installation of harmful invasive technology on our homes with their expensive and harmful “Smart” Meters.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to be regulating telecom companies and protecting the public. Instead, they are also forcing all this harmful invasive technology on us. Referring to them a “Captured Agency” seems accurate and appropriate.
