Citing the information control mechanisms they assembled, vis-a-vis the ability of social media networks to control and approve what is available for the public to read and review, the intelligence officials declare that any effort to break up the private side of the intel/tech partnership will only result in less ability of the intelligence apparatus to control public opinion.

Will we get another Reagan? Probably not. But it’s not completely impossible. And now that Facebook,Twitter and Instagram have been to be corrupt anti-free speech propaganda mills everyone should delete them and find alternatives.
