Bloomberg is sniffing their own farts on businesses having seats at the united nations, but they are right that corporations the size of facebook should be treated as hostile opposing nations. Having seen how they are fully aware of the damaging effects of their services, and yet seek to push them out further specifically towards those most vulnerable to the addictive aspects, I'm warming to the idea of invading the central office and putting their leaders to the sword.

I'm curious to find out if anyone LibRight actually thinks this way, it seems pretty extreme. I can't imagine anyone big on personal freedoms sucking the tiddies of some massive corporation. That seems like the opposite of personal freedom.


FireFly3347

No. Massive corporations who excel at using the government to squash competition shouldn't have all of the governments in their pockets.


dmilin

I believe in a balance of power between government and corporations. When the either has too much power, that’s when things go bad. If they’re busy fighting, they have less resources with which to step on us little people.


FireFly3347

Not really. Government is the only institution with a Monopoly on the legitimate us of violence. Without government, corporations essentially don't exist. Why do you think Facebook has the commercials about more internet regulations? It benefits them. The whole point is they aren't actually fighting.


lemmmmmmonade

Corporate oppression is just as bad as state oppression. The idea is that by making it as easy as possible for anyone to compete, it would be far harder for a company to get to a position where getting a seat at the UN is a question.

Big Business friggin loves regulation for that reason. Just check out Zuckerberg begging Congress to legislate that every social media platform have the kind of moderation that....oh look, only companies like Facebook can afford.

This is why the richest megacorps love mandatory "diversity" too.


Jukeboxhero91

Completely unregulated business leads to abuses of power. The only reason we have safety regulations is because people were injured and maimed by big business chasing profits. Having businesses argue for a high barrier to entry to compete doesn’t translate to regulation.


Scuba_Trooper

They're not mutually exclusive either. Regulations can be a significant part of barriers to entry which is a broad encompassing term. To say otherwise would be totally naive which I doubt you are.


dadbodsupreme

Not to mention a great deal of large corporations are fed by cronyism and /or highly-subsidized, highly-regulated markets.


Netheral

I'm not sure if the article author meant it in a "give corporations more power" way, but rather, "corporations already *have* this much power, we should hold them accountable and making them sit at the UN will make it more transparent what they're doing". As opposed to how it currently is where these corporations basically have all this power, but no accountability because they just use their seemingly infinite wealth to lobby politicians to do all this shit for them and keep their "hands clean".


tossed_a_ton

Laughing at the thought they the UN has held anyone accountable or prevented atrocities.

That's still pretty naïve but it's not nearly as bad as the OP implies.


whatisthisgunifound

I've never met a libright who unironically supports huge corporations running the world. That shit is a meme in the libright community. In reality we very much denounce amazon and the like but believe the answer is not taxation and restriction but the answer lies in decreasing regulation and taxation on small businesses to allow competition and break the government-created monopoly


PrimaryThreat

No, hell no


Ubaralook

No libright believes this, but it's a funny meme so I lol anyway


Mefistofeles1

> I can't imagine anyone big on personal freedoms sucking the tiddies of some massive corporation. That seems like the opposite of personal freedom. Correct, this is authoritarian not liberal. There is no meaningful difference from being oppressed by a state or by a corp.


GSD_SteVB

Libright is 90% *leave me alone with my weed business & my guns* and 10% **lolol international tech cartel go bbrrrrrr**


zxygambler

Cartel is very much opposite to what libright believes in but it is an unfortunate reality that big businesses are in bed with the government


u01aua1

No. LibRights see corporations and the "public sector" as part of the same, evil entity - the state. Only objectivists (the Ayn Rand people) think that most corporations deserve their money and power, but this is disagreed by the vast majority of LibRights.


BananaSlamYa

Honestly the way it reads to me, a Lib Center or Left wrote this. It says that they’re commercial superpowers and thus need to be held accountable by the UN.

This conflates the free-market idealism of LibRight with corporatism more common with AuthRight - and in some cases, AuthCenter. The US has already delegated the regulation of free speech to social media companies and tech platforms in general. Russia is an oligarchy funded by its fossil fuel industry and tech crime groups. China’s corporatism is is the best example of an unholy alliance between government and industry, with worker rights practically nil, and the power and profits funneled back to Pooh Bear. I am happy to see Jeff Bozo and Mark Zuckerturd have as much wealth as they can legally create, but I do not want them to gain any actual *power* - which is why I reluctantly but decisively support antitrust actions against both companies at this point. Giving them some sort of quasi nation-state status is asinine, and I suspect that the author of this article may be writing sardonically and dripping with disdain. I would have to RTFA to know for certain, but even Bloomberg isn’t this - wait, they are. Never mind.


epicgabe01

~~Don't we already have a word for the merger of corporation and state?~~ I feel Bezos and Zuckerberg *do* have some level of quasi-authority since the US outsources things like censorship to tech corporations. Really, the first major step to rectifying this would be to get rid of any regulations that were made specifically to help such corporations and to stop doing Facebook and Amazon any favors.


kisodredir

Corporatism does not equal corporatocracy The fascist idea of corporatism, or the fascist ‘corporate State’, had to do more so with the creation of something like we might think of as a sort of cross between a labor union and an old-fashioned ‘guild.’ It does not mean state merging with private corporations like amazon and google.

swedditeskraep

Usually politicalcompassmemes is smarter than this. **What's pictured isn't a statement that is positive towards Amazon or Facebook.** Hence, it's anti-libright or apolitical. **It simply is a statement of fact: these corporations wield power comparable to that of many nations.** It also argues that they should be held accountable as if they were nations, which is usually done through sanctions. Individual countries don't really dare to hold them accountable. Of course, the UN is useless, so the statement is more signaling than anything, but I think the core of the idea holds water.
