Facebook officials have allegedly diversified $9 billon in corporate monies that should have been paid in taxes.
In a made for retro television pay-per-view event that rivals the epically charged shimmering atmosphere of Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant, two titans of regulatory policy and the logarithmic explosion of the digital construct face off in what is sure to be a prolonged, arduous, and ethically challenged street brawl decimating the peripheral level of natural resources in the process of exhausting tax payer money. The IRS claims that the brainchild of Mark Zuckerberg owes $9 billion in unpaid taxes, a token figure in the grand scheme of things illustrating the ceaseless growth and inexhaustible wealth of a relentless entity engulfing a considerable proportion of the entire digital construct.
The ebullient campaign and the trend by the feds to publicly admonish the vast marketing firm trading in personal information and the electronic manifestations of account holders, equates to a token gesture of bureaucratic chest thumping, however the intrepidly vain peregrination to restore institutional control possesses at least a hint of substantiation. Whether or not the ingrained process proves justifiable hinges on the intended restructuring of the corporation’s leadership hierarchy, and the ousting of Zuckerberg as a resounding consequence to the unscrupulous banishment of redundancies in effectively managing the perpetuating confines of the network afflicting proximal infrastructure and erroneous flawed banks of code.
With the limitless legal resources available to the rogue Silicon Valley corporation, a potentially prolonged and ugly courtroom battle is forthcoming, and in the spirt of a terrible divine comedy, the tax payer is on the hook in providing funding for the federal government legal effort. Since the Cambridge Analytica scandal rocked the 2016 landmark election of some variety of gnarly storm, the campaign by F***book to patent subversive brainwashing and one-sided ideology content packaged as news has been a relentless and indirect attack on free speech. While site traffic has decreased for US account holders, Generation X users and older are still a robust presence, the reality inexplicable considering the reprehensible actions and putrid corporate policy towards the security of private data.
Between the pending federal attorney fees, interference within the upcoming election, the assault on critical thinking skills, and the hypocrisy of eliciting a vast environmental footprint while at the same time sparking climate hysteria, the existence of the social network and associated clones has to be one of the most awful innovations in human history. And it is only going to get worse, as conservatives brace the next tweaking of the news algorithms in promoting an allegiance to Bernie Sanders, and the first professional gender reassigned athlete to forever shatter the women’s 100 meter dash world record in opening Pandora’s box. The adoption of Venezuelan policy to interface with Capitalism in urging commuters to trade in their vehicles for the opportunity to ride on an automated self-driving hydrogen mass transit slug promises to be trending topic of obvious propaganda. A fate that none of the F***book brass will endure as the rhetoric surrounding the intellectually dishonest gravitation from fossil fuels kills transportation logistics, and ironically cripples the energy grid, leaving no resources to charge the false promise fleet of Tesla and electric cars that defy even the most borderline thermodynamic feasibility studies specifying net energy expenditure.
The grandest of the digital social communities has consistently tinkered in changing public policy, and the ramifications of the potential sanctions outside of the monetary considerations will have a lasting impact of how the government interacts with the entire tech industry from a regulatory perspective. The IRS is as lethally efficient in starting a binding paper trail, as the social media outlets are at moderating content. The sharp talons of the Department of Treasury eagle are no laughing matter. However, the audacity of F***book to dabble in politics for the sole sake of transforming the legal environment to fit the motives of the corporation, a tactic shared by other online heavy hitters, makes the concept of accountability extremely difficult to apply. The societal conundrum only worsens, as Zuckerberg and staff unleashed an uncontrollable corporate organism onto the globe, and future informational and data mishaps and disasters are all but guaranteed.
A digital firm is only as reputable as its “terms and conditions”, and the fact that there is an abundance of ambiguities within the F***book bible of community rules leaving right leaning end-users and gun rights supporters susceptible to shadow bans, is proof that the powers that be have no intention of echoing Constitutional rights. While federal government regulatory actions and fines cannot undo the damage caused by the social network, nor can force the hand of corporate leaders to cease subversive efforts in marketing the platform as a domain for free debate, the media maelstrom of Zuckerberg being grilled continuously on the national stage, may deter just enough users to make the right choice for the sake of the sanity and delete their accounts. The call to action is obvious and effective in recovering the essence of reality.
