Gab describes itself as “an ad-free social network for creators who believe in free speech, individual liberty, and the free flow of information online.†The site, which launched last year, has attracted many far-right users who have been banned on sites like Twitter and Facebook. Although the social network claims to be politically neutral, its green frog logo bears a clear resemblance to Pepe the Frog, a popular mascot of the alt-right; and its CEO, Andrew Torba, is a supporter of President Donald Trump who was removed from a Y Combinator alumni network last year for violating its harassment policy.

Google (and perhaps some others) needs to be regulated as a public utility. They are a monopolistic entity with potential dire outcomes for the country, maybe even the world.


Standard Oil was a "too big to break" monopoly also until it wasn't in 1911.

What we need is less regulation, more competition, more adaptation. We need 20 million Americans working on replacing Google.
