The Monopoly of Power / Das Monopol der Macht / O Monopólio do Poder / El Monopolio del Poder

Monopoly (from Greek μόνος mónos (alone or single) and πωλεῖν pōleîn (to sell)) exists when a specific person or enterprise is the only supplier of a particular commodity.

Power is the ability to influence or outright control the behavior of people. Power can be seen as evil or unjust, but the exercise of power is accepted as endemic to humans as social beings.

Internet companies like Facebook are abusing their power to demonetize people and content they do not like. The online community has lashed out, saying the social media network is supplying people with what they want to hear, also cutting the link between the organizations and users.

It is an abuse of the monopoly of power – Facebook and the other major internet companies are basically trying it on, they are experimenting to see if they can use their monopoly of power to increase their profits.

There are calls for internet companies to be treated like utilities, to get to be run completely by the government, or to be regulated by the government to ensure that a competitive market exist.

You can not just allow Facebook‘s business leaders, who are absolutely in cahoots with the secret state, to have this kind of power and to abuse it in the way that they are.

If we can get youngsters to recognize that they are being manipulated by Google and by Facebook – then that would probably hit them on their bottom line.

Monopoly is a board game that originated in the United States in 1903 as a way to demonstrate that an economy which rewards wealth creation is better than one in which monopolists work under few constraints. The current version was first published by Parker Brothers in 1935.
