Josh Hawley, a senator who made me very sad in November by beating Claire McCaskill, is proving to be actually pretty great. See here:
Senator Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) will introduce legislation on Tuesday that would ban the “addictive” features of various social media platforms, which the freshman lawmaker believes have weaponized human psychology in service of an attention-for-profit model.
I believe that this is the most important issue for us to be discussing. And barely anybody is doing that. When did McCaskill ever do anything nearly as important? Hawley is trying to fight against the rise of new totalitarianism. And that’s extremely admirable.
The details and the text of the proposal are at the link.
