Big Tech makes big decisions over our lives: What products we see, how we feel about world events, what to censor — to some degree, even what medical decisions we make. Yet who controls Big Tech? The firms are so powerful and rich they really act as judge and jury now. Increasingly, they are accountable to no one. “Defending Democracy (and us!) from Big Tech” is a 3-episode docu-series from the Debugger Podcast exploring the depths of the problem...and the potential for solutions.

I know that there's just so much to talk about and analyze that you can't talk about everything but I have a question that's been nagging at me for a couple of months. First I wonder if it's really saying much to say that the election last November was the safest or most secure ever. Obviously the statement was meant to undermine the lie that Trump has been pushing among others for the past several months. Isn't it possible Trump knows there was cheating in this election but that the party omitted him to get rid of him? How do candidates as unpopular as McConnell and Collins get elected with majority votes even in heavily Democratic areas? The machines were DRE not Dominion. Was Trump projecting Republican guilt when he lied?

Seriously I ask you this. In the last few weeks as Trump's panic and anger have grown, his eyes are revealing. Lizard eyes(!) for lack of a better term. Masks focus our eyes on other's eyes. An insight into the mind or soul of the man. It's that simple for him: He does not want us to see through this window. I think he looked in the mirror with a mask on his face and saw his own eyes and knew what they would reveal, if only subconsciously. What do you think?

When Janes lamented that on Thursday morning he felt he could no longer go on because trump's popularity is incomprehensible, that is exactly how I felt. But I have too go on, just like him.

Well wasn't that brave of him? He's always been known to be courageous, you know. They used to call him the Lion of the Senate. He was the bravest of the bunch, a scared mouse among blind mice.
