I’m glad I never supported Elizabeth Warren and don’t have to feel embarrassed after she posted this:
Zuckerberg went on Fox News—a hate-for-profit machine that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracy theorists—to talk about how social media platforms should essentially allow politicians to lie without consequences. This is eroding our democracy.
I especially love the word “allow.” She thinks all those billionaires she likes to fake-condemn should be in the business of allowing or not allowing us to speak, read, and think. She believes that the political space should be ruled by three extremely rich guys whom nobody elected to any office.
To Warren, “democracy” is about Zuckerberg allowing or not allowing us, his serfs, whatever it pleases him. She thinks Zuckerberg needs more power, not less. She pouts at Zuckerberg when he resists the idea of completely occupying our political space.
Warren is not an outlier. She’s exactly what progressivism (leftism, whatever) is about. The state should wither away, and three gigantic corporations will rule the world, forcing everybody to take the same diversity classes. And everybody will sit at home, fat, doped up, glassy-eyed and recite woke mantras over dinners of insect burgers and Diet Coke.
