Governments are taking control of the internet 

A couple of big oligopolies control the internet new. Governments are in most cases answerable to the voting public. Who is a big oligopolist like Google or Meta answerable too? As bad as some governments can be the likes of Google and Meta are, to me at least, far worse.

They are two sides of the same coin if you ask me. What/Who controls one, controls the other.

What is coming will be of no surprise to either.

With the amount of sketchy businesses and toxicity online, I welcome this bill. Bring some official moderation and accountability to the web.
