Soros Calls for Greater Regulation of Google and Facebook
This power freak can't stop.
Details of a speech delivered by billionaire George Soros last Thursday at a private dinner event at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland have leaked.
Bloomberg reports that Soros applauded the European Union's heightened enforcement aimed at Google and Facebook. He also called for greater regulation in the United States of the tech companies according to a transcript of the speech that was obtained by the media organization.
This is why it is a principled and strategic error for libertarians to call for regulation of internet companies to force them to be more open. For example, James Damore should not be cheered for suing Google.
Libertarians should be about shrinking government, not sanctioning government power.
Sanctioning government power then becomes a "gain of control" game. Libertarianism is about the elimination of power centers. It is at the epicenter of why libertarians should be anti-Soros. He is all about creating power centers and controlling them. This is anti-freedom. libertarianism is essentially about live and let live.
