Senator Warren has proposed breaking up big tech companies.

Recommended Posts



 Just recently, the 2020 candidate has announced arguably the boldest proposals towards Silicon Valley[1]. Combined this with softer critics on the left towards Silicon Valley, including California's new internet privacy law[2], to conservatives becoming increasingly skeptical of the big tech companies[3];Should the 2020 scenario include an issue regarding Big Tech/privacy?

Maybe I was wrong about Warren, it's fantastic to hear a candidate talk about this .

I'd say yes, the progress of technology, and how that will affect, the economy, and society in general, will likely be issues discussed in 2020, and will only become bigger issues as time goes on.

Warren doing anything she can to stand out and revive her dead on arrival 2020 campaign. Her announcement that she's running barely made a dent in the polling, there's only so many impressionable college aged socdems to get votes from.

I know you're to the left (unsure if you're a social Democrat, or a Democratic Socialist, or pure socialist), but I feel she's the candidate closest to a Democratic Socialist platform ( what with this news, and her proposing 40% of corporate board members must be voted on by the employees).

I'm a full on seize the means of production, abolish the wage system, Socialist, with Anarchist leanings, who's willing to accept Social-Democracy in the short term.

Yes, she's not ideal, but I wouldn't hesitate voting voting for her, and unlike a majority of politicians I don't find her detestable, though how she's responded to Trump's, I guess you'd call them attacks, like the DNA test response to the Pocahontas bullshit, makes me hesitant about how well she'd do against Trump in a general election.
