You may have heard that the EU is in the process of attempting to regulate the big tech giants.
I just wanted to let you know that this has nothing at all to do with normal people, and is just aimed at removing some of the monumental control that these companies are able to gain over countries.
The European Union is set to unveil landmark legislation that lays out strict rules for tech giants to do business in the bloc, according to several media reports.
The draft legislation, dubbed the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act, outlines specific regulations that seeks to limit the power of global internet firms on the European market.
Companies including Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook and others could face hefty penalties for violating the rules.
The landmark draft law is set to be presented on Tuesday.
The draft law sets out a list of do’s, don’ts and penalties for internet giants, EU sources told news agencies Reuters and Agence France-Presse.
Here is the list of rules they’re giving:
- Firms could be fined up to 10% of their annual turnover for violating competition rules.
- Tech giants could be entirely banned from the EU market over “serious and repeated breaches of law,” AFP reported.
- Large tech firms would be designated as internet “gatekeepers” — making them subject to stricter regulations.
- Companies would need to inform the EU ahead of any planned mergers or acquisitions.
- Certain kinds of data must be shared with regulators and rivals.
- Companies favoring their own services could be outlawed.
I don’t disagree with any of this – it all seems very reasonable.
It is actually insane the way that the internet allowed for these companies to just wire in to countries all over the world and start transforming their societies. This should have all been regulated a long time ago. It’s not like people didn’t foresee the power that these companies were going to have.
Who knows if the EU will be successful in regulating this. The EU tends to be less corrupt, given that they don’t allow the absurd “campaign finance” bribery practices that the US allows. There are still a lot of monied interests in their politics, but foreign companies presumably have less sway than in the US.
These actions aren’t especially interesting to me because Europe doesn’t have free speech. Even if they manage to create their own social media companies, which is presumably the goal of these actions, they will still have rules about holding virtually all of the opinions I hold.
There are other issues besides thought control related to the current monopoly system, of course. They just interest me much less.
These are just basic actions they’re taking, which are interesting in the context of trying to regulate a free market. We have huge numbers of people in the US now calling for “socialism” while condemning “capitalism,” and it is very confusing what they are actually talking about. Eventually, you realize that they have no idea what they’re talking about.
We did not use to have a problem in America with our finances. The masses of people were able to have a house, two cars, a stay at home wife, and put their kids through school. A lot has changed since the 1960s, because baby boomers literally did not care what happened to our society, but we haven’t “added more capitalism,” which means that the solution is not “socialism.”
What has actually happened more than anything else is that wealth has been centralized due to a lack of market regulation. I don’t push any hard ideology, but within capitalist ideology, the government has to control monopolies. A system of monopolies is not “capitalism.” You could maybe call it “crony capitalism,” as some do, but it actually amounts to a form of feudalism.
This meme is largely accurate:
We do need to figure out some kind of solution to the economic problems, but it is clearly impossible to do that without first solving the bigger issues. In particular, we need to free our nations from this Jewish stranglehold. Until that happens, talking about economics is really just wheel-spinning, and after that happens, the solutions to the problems we face will ultimately be obvious and likely not all that complicated.
- Massive tariffs to bring back industries
- Deport the immigrants
- Break up monopolies
- Outlaw banking (government bank itself issues loans)
- Charge corporations for replacing humans with machines
- Fix the food supply to drastically lessen the nation’s healthcare needs
It’s all pretty straightforward and obvious right now. There’s no mystery to solve. If you were able to remove the Jews, and install Christian leadership in America, fixing the economy would be the single easiest issue to solve.
I get pretty frustrated when right-wing people waste time talking about economics. It turns into this massive, idiotic circle-jerk, where they seem to imply that we can trick the Jews who rule us into making things better for us. That is not possible. As long as Jews have this amazing level of control, they are calling the shots, and they will decide how much we get or don’t get.
Basically, a few years ago, right-wingers apparently hit a brick wall, where there was not really much value in talking in circles about issues anymore. It was time to take action. But instead of getting behind Nick Fuentes style actions, a portion of the right wing decided to instead go searching for new things to talk in circles about. As such, many of them now spend a lot of time talking about economics, as if that is important.
If you see right-wingers making economics a focus, you can be relatively certain those people are just wasting your time and distracting you from things that actually matter. We need reality based solutions for real world problems, and all of those problems and solutions are political in nature at their core.
