What an interesting ‘coincidence’ that just as more and more people are turning against the globalist elites, globalists like Soros and Trudeau are calling for ‘regulation’ of social media.
In an article for the far-left Guardian newspaper, billionaire globalist George Soros – fresh off his attempts to overturn Brexit – is calling for the regulation of social media, and he wants to use the power of the European Union to do it.
Here’s part of what Soros said:
“The internet monopolies have neither the will nor the inclination to protect society against the consequences of their actions. That turns them into a public menace, and it is the regulatory authorities’ responsibility to protect society against them. In the US, regulators are not strong enough to stand up to the monopolies’ political influence. The EU is better positioned, because it doesn’t have any platform giants of its own. The EU uses a different definition of monopoly power from the US. Whereas US law enforcement focuses primarily on monopolies created by acquisition, EU law prohibits the abuse of monopoly power regardless of how it is achieved. Europe has much stronger privacy and data protection laws than America.”
Consider what “protecting society” means in the EU:
There has been an extensive move to increase government regulatory power, including expanding the definition of “hate speech” and hitting social media companies with large fines if they don’t remove “controversial” or “offensive” content.
But it’s this definition of controversy and offence that is so dangerous, as can be seen by what Soros really fears:
“The current moment in world history is a painful one. Open societies are in crisis, and forms of dictatorships and mafia states, exemplified by Vladimir Putin’s Russia, are on the rise. In the United States, President Donald Trump would like to establish his own mafia-style state but cannot, because the constitution, other institutions, and a vibrant civil society won’t allow it. Not only is the survival of open society in question; the survival of our entire civilisation is at stake. The rise of leaders such as Kim Jong-un in North Korea and Trump in the US have much to do with this. Both seem willing to risk a nuclear war in order to keep themselves in power. But the root cause goes even deeper. Mankind’s ability to harness the forces of nature, both for constructive and destructive purposes, continues to grow, while our ability to govern ourselves properly fluctuates, and is now at a low ebb.”
Soros thinks Kim Jong-un (a brutal tyrant who slaughters innocents and starves his own people to death), and Donald Trump (a democratically elected politician) are comparable.
That says all that we need to know about his state of mind. Whether people like Trump or not, to think he is comparable to a brutal dictator is insanity, and shows total contempt for the democratic process.
Soros is afraid of “populism,” (AKA voters actually getting what they want) and wants to deny a voice to all who oppose his globalist agenda.
So, his real fear is that unregulated social media platforms are being used by citizens to share their views, question their leadership, and weaken the corrupt globalist power structure.
He wants that brought under the control of centralized governments like the EU, so that real free speech and real democracy will be crushed.
After all, we know that the goal of the globalists is to take away our freedom, and centralize all wealth and power in supra-national organisations.
That’s why it’s no coincidence that Justin Trudeau is also calling for stricter social media regulation (and planning to make much of the establishment media dependent on him for bailouts) at almost the exact same time Soros is, and it’s why we need to stand up for our freedom of speech.
If the globalists succeed in their endless effort to expand regulation, then we can kiss our liberty goodbye.
