Mark Zuckerberg is willing to sell America down the road of fascism, hate, and violence in order to keep his company unregulated and unimpeded on the road to building the Total Community of Everyone.

Let’s be clear. It is possible to hire 1,000 or 10,000 or 100,000 human beings to approve every ad. You don’t have to use robots to decide what speech buffets our democracy.

But that would slow Facebook down. It would curb user growth and sales. And that’s what Facebook refuses.

This is why the nature of our society cannot be decided by billionaires. What is good for them and what is good for most of us are different.
