    Debugger – Defending democracy from Big Tech

    Debugger – Defending democracy from Big Tech

    Big Tech makes big decisions over our lives: What products we see, how we feel about world events, what to censor – to some degree, even what medical decisions we make. Yet who controls Big Tech? The firms are so powerful and rich they really act as judge and jury now. Increasingly, they are accountable to no one. ‘Defending Democracy (and us!) from Big Tech’ is a three-episode docu-series from the Debugger Podcast exploring the depths of the problem… and the potential for solutions.

Silly Leslie ,

Thanks, Tom

I’m a retired American who really enjoys listening to Spike (which I’m happy to be a paid supporter of), but I especially appreciated Tom’s evaluation of the situation with Americans and our love of guns (not me; I don’t own one and don’t want to). Regular Americans have seen, especially over the past two years, the failure of the police to stop—or even address—the urban violence in dozens of U.S. cities while woke politicians like vice presidential nominee Camilla Harris helped raise bail money for the lawbreakers but later held dozens of January 6 protesters without bail for 18 months for trespassing. Ella once asked why Kyle Rittenhouse was even in Kenosha the night he shot three violent attackers, killing two of them. Because it was the third night of looting and burning and the local government had done nothing to protect what was the town’s poorest area and a small dealership asked for his help. This same government sicced the police on anti-maskers and anti-vaccine protesters while they allowed more than one million immigrants to cross the southern border without any meaningful pandemic measures being conducted, flying many of them to various towns and cities around the country in the dead of night without testing or quarantine. Also, there were many more guns around earlier in the twentieth century with far less violence among the citizenry, I suspect because wrong-doers were much more afraid of getting shot and knew the authorities would not just let them go if the amount they stole was less than $900, as has been done in San Francisco. Frankly, given the abject government failure in Uvalde and the lack of violent protest against same, I’d say Americans have good reasons for wanting to protect ourselves, with knives even, should it come to that.

Really

So not killing a baby with a heart beat is a crazy attack on women's bodily autonomy? I think your moral compass is F*cked up when a baby with a heart beat doesn’t have equal rights to bodily autonomy
