I previously posted a list of movies that detail either the importance of #antitrust, its consequences when enforcement is non-existent, and over all the negatives of big business. But I have to say @thegreathackdoc featuring @profcarroll tops them all. danielhanley.com/2018/04/17/ant…
@thegreathackdoc @profcarroll @thegreathackdoc is the first film I have seen that clearly lays down the position that democracy and individual autonomy are at stake in the fight against big business - in this case the technology giants.
@thegreathackdoc @profcarroll The film details the frightening but very real consequences of allowing the tech goliaths to establish dominion over every aspect of our lives. While the film mainly features the events of the Cambridge Analytica Scandal & the role FB played, it avoids just talking about FB.
@thegreathackdoc @profcarroll The film details how all of the tech goliaths and the individuals that head them are the puppet masters and king makers, unless something is done. Numerous examples are shown with how data has been used to facilitate a political message: Obama '08, Trump '16, Bolsonaro '19,Brexit
@thegreathackdoc @profcarroll And something must clearly be done. If you want a better understanding of how data has been used to persuade the populace of multiple countries and the consequences of concentrated tech power watch @thegreathackdoc
