  1. Facebook created React, a framework used in many, many sites now. Super popular. Hard to see how that's not a backdoor or at least way to execute what they're being accused of: Learn how competitor sites work and buy or destroy.

  2. The approach to anti-trust is all wrong. This is about everybody's abuse of any new innovations and technologies. The industrial revolution and computers could have ended slavery but the greed keeps it going and growing. Their murderous sexist-infirmist-unprivilegest-based algorithms alone speak to the criminals, “Come, use us. We keep up with the patriarchy.” Maybe they need help following the directions and stipulations that come with grants and the corporations they built on the knowledge from military and scientific secrets of our governments paid for by tax payers in regards to civil rights.

  3. 'It's better to buy than compete': The FTC is using Mark Zuckerberg's own words against him. Read the Facebook CEO's crucial emails here.
    The Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit against Facebook on Wednesday, accusing the company of buying WhatsApp and Instagram to neutralize competition instead of creating their own services to compete against them.

  4. Letter to Facebook,
    GOOGLE and all advertiser sites and all their supporters
    You must respect everyone's freedom.
    You should not prevent us from reading or looking for what we want
    You do not have the right to dispose of our personal data as you see fit.
    We are happy to write to you to thank you for your service to us and to all users
    Since the beginning of your activities, we have always remained faithful to You. There is no reason to change.
    However, in recent times, since you introduced another ubiquitous COOKIES policy on the Internet, it has completely changed our feelings towards you.
    This aggressive way of COOKIES that we see everywhere annoys us!
    You currently impose COOKIES on the WEB for users in a shameful way, without any respect for the opinion and individual freedom of each. And you say you respect them !!
    You declare that you wish to collect our personal data to use it for commercial purposes and to share it with many others: Sharing, exchanging or renting our files with business partners' You are juggling our data entirely. In order to flood us with multiple unwanted and disturbing advertisements. But above all you forbid us to do any research that we need. You arbitrarily block the WEB. You often don't even let us REJECT EVERYTHING as The Law requires you.
    It becomes unbearable!
    You take consumers for fools. People are horrified and outraged! They do not have the opportunity to escape your
    stranglehold .
    It is time to come back as before, that is to say more reasonable, more respectful. You have to REALLY respect people's privacy, please.
    Remember the past when there were no invasive COOKIES like now, life was a thousand times more peaceful: we surfed the Internet pages without any hindrance, surfed with all the freedom and pleasures without being embarrassed by anyone.
    We want you to realize the seriousness of the problem and that you definitively abandon your current COOKIES policy which makes us lose all confidence in You !!
    We remind you that you must strictly observe the General Data Protection Regulation GDPR of the European Union and that several Sites like you have already been heavily condemned for these offenses.
    We sincerely thank you.

    If by chance, you want to know better the author of this letter, to spend a little moment of reading and reflection by wanting to seek a better world and to avoid the possible bankruptcy for our country, just read it. two Ebooks:
    1 /.- NO DEBTS! NO (s) CONCERN! Against the Recession.
    2 /.- Let's fight for a Better World in several languages

  5. Google should have been first. The FTC and other regulatory agencies simply are not capable of bringing multiple large corporations to task simultaneously. Why not go after the biggest offenders first as a template to get the lightweights to find out that fighting is useless and will waste their time and resources as much as the governments? A form of plea bargaining if you will.
