To all of Western society and liberal democracy

I've said this many times before, but the problem isn't social media as a product category, and it isn't ads as a business model. The problem is Facebook itself, its deeply toxic leadership and its deeply toxic social and political impact.

Perhaps with different leadership and a completely different company culture, Facebook could even be a good product. But as it exists now, it is not compatible with liberal democracy, and one of the two will have to give.
