People are beginning to grasp the impact that Big Tech has on their lives.

But they are only scratching the surface.

And Elon Musk agreed with one bone-chilling warning from Twitter’s former boss.

Elon Musk was suddenly branded an enemy of the regime when he bought Twitter for $44 billion and took the company public.

His release of the Twitter Files explained why.

Intelligence agencies had their hands all over Twitter, and they did not want Musk ruining things.

Jack Dorsey insights

Musk took the reins from former co-creator and CEO Jack Dorsey, who came under scrutiny from both the Left and the Right.

Dorsey was the quintessential tech bro who came into Silicon Valley with libertarian leanings, but quickly fell in line with leftist dogma.

Now that Dorsey is out of the hot seat, he has been speaking more freely about decentralization.

During a conference, he made the jaw-dropping statement that the debate over free speech is a “distraction.”

The true fight is over “free will,” and Musk co-signed his thoughts.

Dorsey explained, “This is going to sound a little bit crazy, but I think that the free speech debate is a complete distraction right now. I think the real debate should be about free will. And we feel it right now because we are being programmed. We’re being programmed based on what we say we’re interested in. And we are told, through these discovery mechanisms, what is interesting.”

This is undoubtedly true.

Social media algorithms can give people more siloed content that isolates them from others without even knowing it.

Dorsey continued, “And as we engage and interact with this content, the algorithm continues to build more and more of this bias. But the algorithm, even if it’s open source, is effectively a black box. You cannot predict 100 percent of the time how it’s going to work, what it’s going to show you, and it can be moved and changed at any time. And because people become so dependent upon it, it’s actually changing and impacting the agency we have, the free agency we have.”

Algorithm in control

People who live online are desperate, and they begin to post content based on what will give them the most attention.

Dorsey added, “And I think the only answer to this is not to work harder at open-sourcing algorithms, or making them more explainable about what they’re doing and why they’re doing it, but to give people choice. Give people choice of what algorithm they want to use from a party that they trust. Give people choice to build their own algorithm that they can plug in on top of these networks and see what they want. And they can shift them out as well. And give people choice to have—really a marketplace around an algorithm that you can choose.”


As the public school moves online, the question of algorithmic free will is only going to become more salient.

If an algorithm controls what people see, that controls how people will behave.

The people in power have known this, which is why they did not want a disruptor like Musk coming onto the scene.
