Facebook and YouTube are complicit in “censorship and repression on an industrial scale” in Vietnam, according to a report by Amnesty International that accuses the platforms of openly signalling that they are willing to bow to the wishes of authoritarian regimes, The Guardian has reported.
By giving more power to giants like Facebook and Google (owner of YouTube) we just put ourselves in danger of oppression. These giants don’t care about our rights; what they do care about is benefit.
If they obey a government like Vietnam, they surely obey governments like United States when needed, and that can lead to violating free speech and people’s rights.
If a com[any that gains its power from people acts against people, it should be punished. Sadly, governments mostly don’t side with people. They thrive for power and side with giants like Facebook so they can remain in control of people.
