My Follow-up Opinion: All Social Media Companies should be literally regulated to death (No Advertising and Fairness for All), and then nationalized on a global scale. The profit motives and drivers in the Information field, just like in Medicine, are inappropriate, dysfunctional, and counterproductive. The State should carry the expenses, which are minimal, if not just symbolic, for the maintenance of the Social Media Platforms. If the traditional media justified their charges by the expenses on ink and paper (with expenditures on good thinking and ideas in the very distant from those costs numbers), digital costs simply cannot justified at all at this stage and age. The Social media users build their castles in the air, and the owners of the Social media companies collect the rent. In very nice and tangible real life pennies. The relative value of the good thinking and ideas went up, and the state should protect, defend, and nurture them, for it is them that drive the economic and social progress. The current “free for all” – “Free Enterprise” system breeds crooks, swindlers, liars, and psychopaths, and the current troubles demonstrate this vividly. We as the humans are better than that.
