Facebook Says it is Deleting Accounts at the Direction of the U.S. and Israeli Governments
It’s hard to believe that anyone’s ideal view of the internet entails vesting the power in the U.S. Government, the Israeli Government, and other world powers to decide who may be heard on it and who must be suppressed. But increasingly, in the name of pleading with internet companies to protect us, that’s exactly what is now happening.

a small number of large corporate entities controlled by vested interests such as the US government?
Is it now time for a mass exodus from corporate Facebook and twitter and a return to
the days of independent media and setting up our own independent websites?
