Their head honchos the Zuckerbergs, Gates and Bezos make the Vanderbilts, Morgans and Carnegies of the Gilded Age look like pikers. They want absolute domination and control. Monopoly is not a board game for them, it is the essence of their very being. And they rely on state power to secure their position in dominating the means of work and social interaction. Collectively, these technopolies represent a tremendous concentration economic and political power which does not bode well for the needs of a democratic society. Their amassing of our data is threatening. What can be done?
