İnternet'i Google'dan arındıralım
What’s the problem?
The web giants are so powerful that they exercise technical, economic, cultural and political domination over our societies.
These dominations pose many problems for our freedoms:
- Surveillance capitalism
- Democratic drift
- Closure to a single vision of society
- Centralization of data and attention
What are the solutions?
