For someone so awkward with technology, Elizabeth Warren is seemingly on the right side of the debate concerning the world’s tech giants. Take a swig, Liz.
“Today’s big tech companies have too much power — too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy,” Warren said, sounding more like a conservative scorned (like me) than someone whose progressive philosophy is a beneficiary of tech bias.
Kudos to her for being so gracious about it.
“They’ve bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field against everyone else,” she added. Also true.
But don’t get me wrong. I’m not quite where Tucker is yet. Especially not when you consider Warren’s appeal to the populist centre — where a lot of Trump voters came from — will have socialist strings attached.
