Poland Will Fine Big Tech $13.5 Million Per Case For Removing Ideological Content: “Poland Spent 45 Years Under Communism…It Taught Us the Value of Free Speech”
Poland is taking steps to do what we should have been doing in this country for the past six or seven years.
They are going after the censorship policies of big tech in a significant way.
When you censor someone or some sight-based purely to stifle free speech it will now cost them $13.5 million dollars per case. Imagine if we did that here.
Some big tech companies would go broke just from the fines. Poland is on to something.
You have seen this past week what Facebook did in Australia. Maybe countries need to ban big tech companies that try to pull what was done to Australia.
One country might not mean much but as more countries would ban them their revenues and stock price would take a tremendous hit.
I know I could live without seeing what my friends had for dinner last night. How about you?
For 45 years Poland lived under communism and they now know the value of free speech and they are willing to give it up to the Masters of the Universe.
I know that I refuse to click on any ads because these companies make more money every time someone clicks on an ad whether they buy anything or not. I will deny them that money. But Poland has the right idea.
Imagine if we had that law in the United States, the big tech companies would be paying out hundreds of millions every single day.
Such laws will work. Big Tech is like a psychopathic unhinged child that needs strict guidelines. Without them, it will end up like Charles Manson, turning every society it encounters into a cult that cleanses all of those who oppose them.
They do not have a moral or constitutional compass; such things are tools to use against the empathy of the host. They just want to grow like a cancer until they eat their host alive. Nothing they do is for the people. We all know how Big Tech is beloved by totalitarian China and caters to their every whim.
But, in India, for example, Facebook caved to the pressure of the Prime Minister to remove 500 accounts that were critical of his leadership:
“Meanwhile, in India, social media is also being curbed by the government but in a very different way: Twitter has caved to the demands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and removed 500 accounts that were being critical of his leadership during recent protests. Twitter relented after its employees in India were threatened with arrest.”
