The problem with Facebook is not that they are evil, or that they don’t have the ability to protect our data (which is actually their data).

The problem with Facebook is that it is too big to fit anything of human scale. It’s too big to fit markets (it’s a monopoly). It’s too big to fit in national jurisdictions (as a popular global platform, it has to comply with conflicting laws from different nations at the same time).

My feeling is that Facebook is too big and too powerful to even fit democracy…
