    FTC Chairman Prepared to Break Up Big Tech

    I do not think that only a threat will work. They should be broken up.

    U.S. Federal Trade Commission is prepared to break up major technology platforms if necessary by undoing their past mergers, Chairman Joe Simons said on Tuesday in an interview to Bloomberg, as the agency anti-competitive practices in the sector.

    Simons said in the interview that breaking up a company is challenging, but could be the right remedy to rein in dominant companies and restore competition.

    He is leading a broad review of the technology sector to see whether companies including Facebook Inc are harming competition.

    Sounds like a bit of ex post facto goofiness. If free enterprise really works..they need competitors not bureacratic government micro managment.

    Google and Twitter have not only illegally censured conservatives sites, but they have prevented free enterprise including for other search engines such as GAB. They need to be broken up as they are a danger to our nation. Google is also big time in bed with the Chinese govt and military.

    I am a proponent of free enterprise and generally speaking, I don't want the government involved. However, Google, fakebook, and the giant tech's are now entitled to special dispensation from the government based on the idea that they would allow free discourse and exchange of ideas. They no longer do that. They control a vast amount of the information that the American people see and hear. They are as well, clearly in bed with the left. There is no free exchange of ideas, only what they want you to see. That's dangerous.

    I am torn on this

    First they come up with a product that people use and they grow and grow and become a giant... free market working

    on other hand.. when they pick sides in politics and start blocking and slowing down one group over the other - they stop being a business making money and start becoming a political arm making "kings" and helping to elect policy makers
