NOW that that is established, it must be put out there: no doubt, the emergence of Big Tech has added many positive benefits to societal’s landscape – from the most benign activities to the most complex. In fact, this author has been known to appear dumb-stuck, when listening to a nearest and dearest describe some of the life-saving procedures he performs during cardio-thoracic surgery – that which couldn’t be accomplished (as safely) without a multiplicity of hi-tech innovations via computer-assisted robotics. It doesn’t get any weightier than that.
EVEN so, not unlike what is coined “Frankensteinian”, what can be used for the greater good, a/k/a the “social good”, can morph into an out of control monster in every walk of life, that is, if not reined in and monitored.

For what amounts to a Herculean struggle against China’s repressive tactics and dictates, millions strong in Hong Kong are risking their lives to protest against the Chinese regime, as well as those who support the dictatorship from within their heretofore island of freethinking. Naturally, Facebook’s and Twitter’s (with other Big Tech accomplices) far-left commandants are more than pleased (ideologically and bottom-line-wise) to assist the Chinese dictatorship! Crackdown.
