In a fortuitous development for right-minded organizations and individuals, the sweeping epidemic of internecine within the tech world has reached a peak level of intensity, as the giant corporations begin to trade blows in all-out neighborhood melee spawned by threats from the federal government to invoke antitrust throughout the vast digital imprint emanating from Silicone Valley.
And this could be the best possible reality for end users, who have witnessed dwindling traffic and a shrinking reach to friends and customers, as F***book, Twitter and Alphabet, Inc, which owns Google among other online ventures, have all enforced specific bans based on political ideology. Out of the three billion dollar revenue behemoths, thanks to shady practices in crunching personal date, only Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, has publicly owned up to the fact that the vast majority of the tech world is left-leaning, and the corporation is vested in forwarding a specific and toxic agenda threatening basic Constitutional freedoms.
In the ongoing battle to maintain credibility and healthy subscriber numbers, both Apple and Mozilla are attempting to separate themselves from the transgressions of the aforementioned trifecta of internet evil, by launching counter apps which will attempt to cloak the online behavior of users from aggressive and unethical tracking programs, reports ABC news. The move sends a clear message to the public, that there are distinctive factions within the tech community, and the chasm between the differing business models is growing.
Social networks and search engines, which are a guise for lucrative advertising agencies, in selling personal for a premium to the highest bidders in the retail world, rely on subversive tactics, such as ambiguous “Terms and Conditions” agreements and complicated privacy settings to voraciously mine and process online behavior, and with a complete disregard and lack of accountability in handling personal data. The mechanism for deflecting this ugly truth is to delve into politics and create the illusion of collusion, in claiming that outside influences effected the results of the 2016 election, another desperate attempt by leftist syndicates to justify Trump’s ascension to the most powerful political distinction in the free world. Ironically, and loaded with pathological inclinations, the infamous digital trio did their best the with assistance of disruptive bots, in paving the way for a possible Hillary victory, a truth that will never resound outside the Silicone Valley boardrooms.
While the anti-tracking software released by Apple and Mozilla is more of a token gesture of detachment from the pending dumpster fire of federal legal proceedings, than a workable solution to the issue of online personal privacy rights, the public relations move has generated headlines and more importantly exposed the schism atop the suddenly volatile summit of the tech world heavyweights.
Armed with this knowledge, end users can do their part in weaning themselves off social networking and ensuring that biased corporations are less of a detriment to all facets of society, in threatening basic freedoms by engaging in cultural engineering.
