The Fall Of The Tech Giants – The Rise Of The Entrepreneur On Blockchain
Free speech is constantly being redefined and controlled by the silicon valley elite, the big tech oligarchs. They’ve accumulated so much power at such a rapid rate it has become so far beyond our ability to regulate or even comprehend. Never in the history of the western world have we seen so few unelected people achieve so much power and influence in such a short period of time. This has been done without the free flow of information from the tech giants.
Recently, we have seen US Senators, speak out, enraged at the level the issue of freedom of speech, censorship, deplatforming, privacy, selling personal data, surveillance, etc, is escalating and has become preeminent.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), one of the most vocal critics of the big tech Masters of the Universe in the U.S. Senate, delivered a speech at the Hoover Institution last weekend highlighting the dangers posed by social media business models to American society. He questioned whether Silicon Valley was as valuable to America as it is often portrayed.
Sen. Hawley’s thesis as he states is this,
“I think the evidence is more and more strongly suggesting that there is something deeply troubling, maybe even deeply wrong with the entire social media economy. That it does not represent a source of strength for America’s tomorrow but is rather a source of peril.”
Even President Trump tweeted, “I am continuing to monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms. This is the United States of America – and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH!”
Now Chris Hughs, Co-founder of Facebook is publically suggesting Facebook needs to break up or be dismantled, stating,
“We are a nation with a tradition of reining in monopolies, no matter how well-intentioned the leaders of these companies may be. Mark’s power is unprecedented and un-American. It is time to break up Facebook.”
So how is a break up of a firm, initiated and dealt with?
The government would need to demonstrate that the conglomerate has the monopoly of the market in the industry and that it is hurting consumers by manipulating price hikes and/or reducing product quality. In this case, a lawsuit would be filed to seek a structural break-up.
“The case law as it stands today would make the structural breakup of any of these companies very challenging,” an antitrust expert based in Washington said. "It is rare for the government to seek to break up an existing company, but it has been done.”
What about privacy issues?
U.S. lawmakers are also considering privacy legislation that would weaken companies like Facebook by reducing the amount of personal user data they control, thus reducing their value to advertisers.
Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act states information service providers like Facebook and Google are protected from expensive libel lawsuits and other forms of risk that publishers face. Those protections allowed the oligarchs to build their businesses. The staggering nefariousness of our public discourse is not accidental. It is a game, which is structured for the profit of billionaire monopolists, and which encourages addictive use.
The result has been the creation of a socially toxic void at the heart of American democracy, from which the information consortium like Google and Facebook have sucked out all the profit, leaving their users predisposed for top-down surveillance, manipulation, and control.
While they mull over the results in the last 20 years on the internet and web 2.0 and endeavor to come up with a solution or a way to counteract this precarious subliminal takeover, technology along with a few extraordinary visionaries have purposed a way to move on from all the drama the world has and still is caught up in.
In The Nick Of Time
The technology, being Blockchain is advancing just at the right time. It offers a truly private incorruptible means of communication that is sorely needed. It has now been integrated into a platform that transforms all others including every aspect of social media, inbound marketing, advertising, commerce, publishing, in fact, any form of entrepreneurialism you can think of, is now being born and is part of the next generation or Web 3.0. While the “powers that be” strive to bring a balance back into the world of social media platforms and network neutrality in general of the past 25 years, let’s move forward into a new era where freedom of speech and privacy is a priority. Autonomy, free enterprise, creativity, and collaboration are rewarded.
The Rise Of The Entrepreneur
Thomas Prendergast, author of 7 books included bestseller The Masters of Marketing, inventor, architect, and founder of Veretekk, established in 1994 and the first inbound (automated) marketing system on the Internet, has much to say about empowering the Entrepreneur, the coming rise of the Entrepreneur and the state of the economy of the world today. So much, in fact, he put his words into action and built Markethive for all.
CEO and Founder of Markethive, Thomas Prendergast says,
“I built Markethive to be a powerful social network for entrepreneurs. It has been my vision and life’s work. It is similar to other networks making it easy to navigate, but I integrated the most advanced Inbound Marketing technology as part of the platform. I did this to give the struggling startup entrepreneur, the little guy, and gal entrepreneur, the small business, the moderate business, the home business, the work at home Moms and Dads real advantage, an advantage that sells for up to $6000 per month elsewhere. I built this platform for you to have total access of, with free membership and affordable upgrades”.
Thomas Prendergast CEO reveals,
“After raising $400,000 in 2013, Markethive became a reality in mid-2016 and has already begun making success stories and changing the playing field. My decision to convert to the blockchain was multiple reasons. To create our own asset coin as an instrument to our ecosystem for entrepreneurs, as a blockchain system to guarantee and deliver a secure system to each subscriber, to offer security to assure members that they own and control their data, we don’t, and to ensure that nothing like banning, shadow banning and political agendas ever controls the network. Only blockchain offers this solution.”
Mr. Prendergast finished by saying, “I am fully committed to building the members of Markethive into huge success stories. This is my way of helping make this world a little bit brighter and helping the struggling entrepreneur to have a lot more advantages to reach their goals”.
