But they are already falling into the realm of anti-trust…as in “We the American people DO NOT TRUST this large corporation, whose main goal is to increase its own profit margin, to have our best interests in mind.”
The media is focused on answering the question of what may happen to a user’s service when they should be focused on what will happen to our rights and our democracy. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the government from making any law abridging the freedom of speech or infringing on the freedom of the press. If only our forefathers had included a dictum against market or business endeavors that have the secondary outcome of infringing on these areas. Instead, we are letting the loopholes of the ‘free-market’ decide just how much of our constitutional rights we get to maintain.
