No one likes competition. Especially when the prize being fought over is nothing less than worldwide power and influence. Which is probably why the infamous Globalist billionaire George Soros has increasingly been speaking out against two companies whose influence are starting to eclipse even his own. Speaking at this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, the billionaire hedge fund manager had some strong words regarding two of the world’s largest tech giants, Google and Facebook.
Stating it was, “only a matter of time before the global dominance of the US IT monopolies is broken.” Mr. Soros went even further stating, “Davos is a good place to announce that their days are numbered.” When pressed what exactly would be the cause of their demise. Big government ally Soros was surprisingly honest and direct with his reply, “Regulation and taxation will be their undoing.”
This response indicating that it’s not as if he actually believes these companies would fall under fair free market conditions, but rather that his government allies will soon step in to bring the regulatory hammer down on these rogue powers. Assuming of course they don’t just finally bend the knee and give in fully to supporting the overall Globalist agenda.
The timing of his negative comments is revealing as well, given that not to long ago the billionaire actually invested heavily in both companies. Most likely hoping he could turn their increasing power to his own ends. These new comments coupled with the fact he recently reduced his Facebook investment by over 50% would imply that thus far, this plan has not proven successful.
Which is why having seemingly failed in an attempt to use his money to just buy control of them, Soros now is actively working to encourage the government to simply destroy them with burdensome taxes and regulations. Surrounded by political leaders from around the world at Davos, Soros publicly called the tech giants an increasing, “global problem.” Even going so far as to state “the owners of the platform giants consider themselves the masters of the universe.” A strange accusation from a man who has been banned from his own home country for behaving that way himself.
Even stranger for someone with such a long standing history of meddling in politics and attempting to influence elections were his accusations regarding the tech giants doing the same. “One of the critical problems these networks cause is their ability to influence how people think and behave. This has far-reaching adverse consequences on the functioning of democracy, particularly on the integrity of elections.” Given the man saying these words however, one can’t help but feel this is more about professional jealousy, rather then a genuine concern for the integrity of our politics.
While any Conservative or Libertarian will tell you Google and Facebook certainly aren’t perfect. For now at least they still both serve as important tools that aid the free flow of information and discussion. When power hungry men like George Soros talk about how the government should step in and take control under the guise of making them public utilities. This is the type of statement that should unite the entire Right together in mutual concern.
