Do we need to de-fang the FAANGs (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, as well as Google) before the idea is usually too late?
The stock valuation of these few companies alone exceeds $4 trillion dollars at This particular point. They dwarf the real economy as well as almost every country on earth. Their power is usually growing exponentially with cloud computing, ecommerce, artificial intelligence, blockchain, machine learning, robotization, as well as at This particular point space travel.
They believe they own as well as will dictate our future.
Do they demand anti-trust action? What about their unruly collusion? Alarming labor practices? Or the fact of which they more or less avoid paying tax?
These are perhaps the most “rapacious” enterprises, ever. Yes, they rape the public — of which is usually the very meaning of the word.
Look at how intertwined Amazon is usually. the idea is usually imperial. as well as its leader is usually cult-like, a cyber-oligarch of the largest pretensions.
This particular is usually a serious political, cultural, deeply societal question. We pose the idea in all seriousness. Don’t censure the idea or shy away through asking the idea yourself.
President Trump’s end game seems to be to get a Real World Free as well as Fair Trade Agreement going on all sides, even as he bashes a few players along the way. of which may work to America’s benefit as long as the idea keeps a technological advantage over the emerging Asian powers.
although what about the evil, controlling companies right here?
the idea is usually abundantly clear of which the Chinese in particular have ambitions to not just take over although to run the planet by 2030, its technology, its military, as well as its political as well as trading systems. They have said so. Some day we will all likely awake to the danger of all This particular, hopefully not before the idea is usually too late to do something about the idea.
Trump gets the idea as well as of which is usually why is usually refuses to kowtow to China as well as its not so covert project literally translated as “global domination.”
We should however all be equally, if not more concerned, about another rising tide, which seems to be gathering greater power with every passing day.
the idea is usually FAANG power.
You use a mobile phone, have a laptop, do social media, conduct searches, view the web as well as buy stuff, as well as entertain yourself right? Think about who controls every link in of which chain.
Jeff Bezos better than anyone represents of which tide. He is usually the poster boy of tech monopoly.
Recently, he was ONLY worth $66 billion. Today, his numbers topple $150 billion. If you add up all the wealth of the mightiest worldwide today, we think the idea might eclipse most government coffers. We are sure Bezos believes in low taxes (at least for himself as well as for Amazon which pays almost none) as well as free trade too, as do most various other techno-entrepreneurs at This particular point classified as the planet’s wealthiest people.
although his intentions are very sinister.

Bezos wants to dominate our lives — every bit as much as the Chinese do.
He is usually a real monopolist. of which is usually threatening.
He is usually already getting there — through his websites to his services to his media outlets as well as at This particular point including, even what you eat as well as how you medicate. Make no mistake Bezos’ strategy is usually to own you, control you as well as to do so vertically—of which is usually his strategy: vertical integration of our entire supply chains as well as our life cycles.
When confronted at the BENS (Business Executives for National Security) Annual Meeting, where he was given a prize for his contributions to America, Bezos stated his ambitions boldly. Asked what he was going to do with his many, many billions. He replied of which he wanted to take man to the outer planets. He wants to own space, too.
At some close time inside the future, there will be a tipping point after which these brand-new multinational corporations (FAANGS plus Asians), although particularly Amazon, who realize they control the financial world as well as can influence the political as well as governmental world beyond repair come to full power.
Watch for the takeover. the idea is usually coming as well as sooner than you think. There are signs.
Having spent years working within the G7 leadership community, we realize more than most political observers of which the elected leadership of governments are no longer running what they lead. They can barely run their own offices as well as get reelected.
Cabals of civil servants as well as lobbyists (a Deep State) at This particular point control every step inside the process, through writing speeches, to creating policies, to passing laws as well as enforcing them. through the most powerful governments down to the majority of puny little states, these leaders have become pawns to the various other more powerful bureaucrats.
Unelected so-called ‘experts’ working on behalf of as well as dictated to by the FAANGS will in time decide everything. What you buy, where you buy the idea, who you vote for, what you read as well as see. the idea is usually absolutely Orwellian as well as portends nothing less than the “end of freedom.”
Trump alone is usually ripping up This particular matrix as well as delivering his own speeches as well as Executive Orders, which are understood as well as accepted by the populace, heretofore left out of the political process. He is usually succeeding although against all the odds as well as inside the face of massive opposition as well as racial/political hatred, most of the idea fueled by the mainstream very liberal media as well as the tech giants (in Amazon’s case they are one as well as the same).
The question is usually: Can he sustain This particular barrage long enough to continue with these efforts? Can he possibly win? Or will they destroy him?
This particular is usually the brand-new geo-political battleground.
Global (so-called transnationals’ because they owe no allegiance to any country or nation) corporations are moving in their sole-sourced directions (Bezos, Zuckerberg, Cook, Glasberg, as well as hundreds of others worldwide). Central banks as well as governments are pushing in another direction.
The fault lines are cracking around these forces.
Trump stands inside the middle, although alone he may not contain the power to influence the change he so dearly wants as well as shares with the majority of ordinary voters, ordinary citizens—the masses.
They are like sheep willing to follow the lead over a cliff too often as well as the technology as well as influence of the Amazon’s of This particular world is usually growing beyond anything we have previously experienced. Their biased algorithms control what we do, buy, as well as view. Their gadgets as well as platforms shape elections, markets as well as ideologies.
as well as who polices them? Who has oversight over them?
This particular extraordinary shift in power, away through governments as well as into the hands of a certain few corporate markets as well as their highly paid lobbyists versus the weakened powers of the governed, makes for a battle zone bigger than any past world war.
When we see the wimps of which make up most of the governments around the planet as well as realize they are mere puppets inside the hands of their handlers, we fear Trump falling into the same traps. Even he can’t control the vast government he presides over—more than a military industrial complex Eisenhower warned us about some 60 years ago. His very own Justice Department as well as FBI colluded to take him down as well as impeach him.
The media, the bureaucrats as well as all who oppose him do not see of which he is usually the one, true altruist trying to turn This particular tide around.
Can he alone do the idea? The angry haters who oppose him grow in strength. Their shrill voices of resistance fill the airwaves as well as the streets. Silicon Valley as well as the Bezos crowd want him to vanish. They even tried a clandestine coup to overthrow him.
Those of which do continually as well as vociferously oppose him, like almighty Bezos, buy an organ like the Washington Post to critique as well as defame him day in as well as day out. the idea is usually hard to compete with such power as well as wealth. They censure their opponents as well as deprive them of their voice.
the idea is usually a war of words for at This particular point, although governments will soon bow to the forces of manipulated markets, which can overpower them in actions.
Amazon could rule not just the US although also the whole wide world by 2030.
Rue the day when Amazon as well as a like-clique of all-powerful tech giants does run the planet. the idea will make ‘The Matrix’ look like child’s play.
We will all be mere serfs in their techno grip.
