Why not make another social media website and app for everyone that doesnt have an agenda? I mean if people can come on to ats and bitch about this then they are smart enough to make another social media site to curb to their thoughts

But deny ignorance


Gab tried that, and look what happened to them.

Why would huge Capitalist Big tech companies side with Socialist ?

its actually very simple

1. The huge Capitalist Big tech companies and special interest groups fund (congress) and in return CONTROL the congress. Gov't (congress) is dependent on the huge Capitalist Big tech companies money for positive PR, Positive MSM access,elections, and reelections.

2. While the gov't(congress) doesn't control the huge Capitalist Big tech companies, they do control the consumers and the market.

3. The bigger the gov't the more control of the the consumers and the market. Since huge Capitalist Big tech companies control the gov't they want bigger gov't because it gives them more control over the consumer and the market.


That is why regardless of political rhetoric BOTH party always give you the same thing/
A. bigger gov't
B. less consumer protection
C. More Oligarch protection
D. Less personal rights.

Summary

Big globalist tech industry controls gov't . Govt controls consumer and market. Bigger gov;t gives more control to the Big globalist tech


^^^^^ This!!!^^^^^

I was going to say it a little different way, from an actual product perspective, but this sums it up nicely.

When Microshaft is king, what do people think will happen to products like LINUX???

When Gobble is king, what do people think will happen to products like hard drives and personal storage?? Or, search results and/or alternate engines?? Not to mention personal privacy??

When Failbook and Twatter are king, what do people think will happen to services ATS, Reddit, and many more???

When the media giants like GE/COMCAST, Newscorp, Time-Warner, CBS, VIACOM and others are king, what do people think will happen to services FOX, Breitbartor any of a long list of others??

I would hope most know the answers to these, but apparently they don't.

Power with no oversight....

Wouldn't that be free market capitalism?

I'm with asabuvsobelow, that sounds like the opposite of socialism.

exactly i have never met a socialist talking about wanting to be dependent on the system they always envision themselves as part of the top dog deciding who should get what.

I agree with other posters:

1. It's about power not necessarily paper money. You can only enjoy so many homes and drink so many glasses of expensive wine. Socialism gives them control over other people in a way paper money can't

2. Regardless of any official higher tax on the wealthy, they will end up making more money.
Social programs enabled Walmart to shift the cost of employment to the Government. If it wasn't for government subsidized housing, food and rent, Walmart wouldn't have a healthy workforce.

Socialism also gives them the opportunity for monopolies. If all the businesses are state-run, they can knock out most competition.

But I do agree with some socialism like universal income and health care.

Why cant you see it is not socialism if you are at the top pulling the socialt strings like a marionette? It is capitalism on steroids.


Incorrect. Capitalism = free markets and lack of government intervention. What we have is crony capitalism & a plutocracy/oligarchy.

That's one of the biggest threats the free world faces today, TPTB and talking heads blaming CAPITALISM when we really don't even have a semblance of capitalism anymore. You need to study history and definitions because your comment is 100% incorrect and is the type of thinking that is allowing the masses to be manipulated into asking for less freedom and more government...

If socialism does come to America, do you honestly believe that the big tech billionaires, the celebrities, sports stars are going to have a penny less then they have now?

It'll be all of us who will suffer.

The elite will still be the elite in a socialist/communist system.

Not a single hair on their heads will be touched.

They'll just be able to dictate what we say, write, post, think, drink, eat, drive, live.



The problem I have with this, the ones railing against socialism are helping fuel it as well.
On many conservative forums, they openly say they invest in Iphone, Asian, Google,and Tech stocks and so on and then whine about these companies.

Everyone would be forced to contribute , whether they used the product or not.
Done
Next


The socialist corps are destined to win though no matter who is in power.
When it comes to the topic of investing and making money, they are all onboard in investing with these companies.

I confronted many of these Conservatives on this and the usual retort is I must be poor for not taking advantage of the easy money.

This is why I dont understand why people defend these corporations.
These corporations bankroll the politicians.

When we attack overseas terrorists, we go after their bankrollers as well as the terrorists.

Their are corporate apologists that want us to ignore the bank rolling corporations and only attack the politicians.
Why not attack them both?

And these Billionaires are heads of Corporations or highly invested in the stock market.
Under Trump, the number of Corporate Lobbyists and their power doubled.
Lets also not forget the trillions pumped into the stock market under Trump.


So how will this be any different under Biden?????????

Unfortunately because they have not only made politics a team sport they have made it into a religion. Nothing and I mean nothing is more important to the majority of the political cheerleaders than protecting their own political party. Not even family or friends, as they are willing to loose them for protecting their party.

On the left you have the idiots that think giving more money and more power to a gov't CONTROLLED by the Oligarch corporations is a good idea.

On the right you have the idiots that think gov't is in control and gov't is the one that does everything stupid and wasteful and only the Oligarch corporations can make good decisions. However, they completely ignore or dont understand that gov't does nothing by it self. Its those SAME Oligarch corporations that draft and create the stupid and wasteful regulations than gives it to congress to robosign.

Then THEY both completely overlook the ONLY issue that BOTH sides should ONLY be concentrating on which is CONFLICT OF INTEREST. It makes no sense to expect congress who is riddled with conflict of interest to do anything but Fk you and benefit itself every chance it gets.

Then on both sides each MSM source keeps each side focus on all the irrelevant issues such as healthcare,economy,racism,sexism,taxes,immigration, etc because as long as you keep going to them to fix those issues both sides will be ignorant or distracted from concentrating on CONFLICT OF INTEREST which is the reasons those issues exists.

This is it. They dont want socialism or capitalism. Both lead down the road of losing forms of control.
Antifa and all those little crisis cults are bickering among themselves while the carpet is being torn out from underneath them.
Its not quite what happened in russia tho, as Mark twain said it best, history doesnt repeat itself it rhymes.

What's happening in the US is what happened in every place on earth where the neo liberal agenda graced them with their new "democracy". Yugoslavia, the Middle East, Afghanistan, etc. And Ukraine right now.

star and flag OP
excellent question / topic

I suspect once the democrats are entrenched with their packed SCOTUS and extra four Senators
they will crack down on 'outside' media (Fox, talk radio, the handful of conservative periodicals)

soon the USA will essentially have a one-party government.

before long financial crises. they will look at Google, Facebook etc and see $ and take over.
I'm sure Zuck &tc will have nice estates and all but eventually the gummint will rule everything it wants.

You have it right about the oligarch corporations but then you went a bit off the rails.

The deal is that the tech companies, (all) are highly dependent upon and subservient to China. China backs the Dems and the Dems represent the One-Party State solution the Tech companies so badly want. The Tech companies see huge profits, huge ongoing profits from contracts for the total surveillance state ruled by the One Party. By setting up the One-Party State, the Dems can then install the total surveillance state and with that, all commerce, all political speech and all "news' outlets will be managed by the Tech companies.

you can read about that at:
www.eff.org...

then there's this:


Victoria Police confirmed the arrested woman was further than five kilometres from her home and was issued with three infringement notices.

The Aussie cops are using gps tracking data on all citizens to note whether they have travelled beyond thier 5 kilometer containment zone.

Get ready for it.......its coming.

Oh, and the best article on the subject?

They don't want Socialism.

They simply latched onto traditionally socialist or at least pro-worker movements. Subverting them to their own interests.

Kind of like an acid-burning brain parasite. Only less pleasant.

That's an excellent question. One I have wondered about myself. One problem trying to figure it out is that we are looking at the past trying to figure out the future. I can't figure out what is going to happen after this election much less why these capitalist derived companies are doing what they are doing. Is it that they realize that continued capitalism needs replacing for the welfare of the planet and man's continuing survival going forward? I remember hearing that we are now in another great extinction event right now because of human influence over our environment. Is that it?

If you think Billion dollar globalist corporations care more about political ideals than money and power you are living in fantasy land.

BOTH party have gotten us where we are today and BOTH party have sold us out. Now you may argue that trump is different (to be determined how ) but make no mistake the Republican party has done the exact same things as the democrats.

BOTH party have created bigger gov't , reduced personal rights, given Oligarch friendly laws , and sold us out to foreign entities. The only difference between the two is rhetoric.
