If we enforce antitrust laws then this wouldn't be an issue to begin with. The internet, and especially SOCIAL MEDIA shouldn't be privately owned or privately controlled anymore than the military or roads should be.

Very well put. Social media is too big to be privately controlled however they see fit. It’s the same thing with internet - congress decided that Verizon must share (net neutrality) all the fiber optics it laid down, even though it was their idea, manpower, and cost.

What if Ford had a monopoly and decided it wouldn’t sell to republicans? These democrats saying that private companies can do whatever they want are slimy and unethical. Which exactly matches my scientific prediction: that democrats are unethical, and that this will continue to be observable in nature.
