Big Tech v. America: How to Fight Back and Win

We can stop pretending Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple, and Amazon aren’t out to get half the country, and start doing something about it.
If we’re going to be objective about it, we’ve got to give the Mark Zuckerbergs, Jeff Bezoses and Jack Dorseys of the world their due — the apps they’ve created are some of the greatest technological marvels in history.
