Due to the pandemic, Big Tech’s power over our lives is growing faster than ever. A handful of companies now exert unbelievable power over our how we learn, work, shop, and socialize.
The CEOs of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google recently testified under oath before Congress.
The power of these corporations is so great that they’re now a virtual fourth branch of our government.
This is too much power to vest in these for-profit corporations, whose first obligations will always be to their stockholders over the American public. We believe the government must take the first steps to breaking up Big Tech companies.
Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google have become an unelected fourth branch of government. The federal government must take steps to break up these companies.
This will allow us to keep the technology that has improved our lives, let competition and innovations grow, and remove this threat to our democracy.
