rs who see Face…uarter. Clamping down on ads of viral content is not a financially sound decision for the platform. Facebook seems to value profit over the safety of its users, and it is reticent to cut off what is a massive and growing source of its revenue — Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and a growing number of other state and non-state actors who see Facebook as key to their strategies of dominating the global online debate and pushing their worldview.
Agreed. Greed Trumps all, pun intended.
When the world has succeeded in nuking the shit out of every other country, when Facebook has succeeded in poisoning the vast billions and giving voice to our greatest evils, and there is nothing left, what will Mr. Zuckerberg spend his billions on?
In fact, I might suggest that most of his shareholders will be dead as well.
That is indeed where we are headed, when hate overwhelms all manner of discourse, as witnessed across the board. Hate simply breeds more hate. It’s a never ending spiral. With only one ending in sight, that I can envision.
