The network dominates in the US and elsewhere. It says who can be elected, by banning from social media anyone it does not like, what topics can be discussed during elections. Corporations can ban you, control you. In China, they can deperson you. You cannot book a flight, get a loan, get a credit card, get online to the job sites, to the dating sites, to anything. How do you operate in the modern world when you do not have access to any of that? There are no basic rules that limit any of this. John Robb testified in front of the Senate that we need rights, rather than terms of service. Terms of service do not equal the Constitution or Bill of Rights. We need protections. We need freedom of access, both as individuals and as companies and organizations, and rules, but only the most extreme stuff can be banned or knocked out, calling for violence, etc. That has to be adjudicated in a fair court that we actually trust; not some kind of Facebook supreme court that they built on the sly.
