In my opinion the root cause to the problems that Facebook exposes is the commercialization of the Internet. Capitalism provides a tremendous amount of opportunity and can make people very rich, but it’s not stable, and left unconstrained it will destroy democracy.

The fast majority of the problems we are dealing with in the United States has been due to a war waged by powers and principalities against the New Deal laws that constrain capitalism and preserve democracy.
