The Big Tech Giants Are The New East India Company

Even after the winding up of the East India Company which enslaved nearly 25% of the total land mass of the world till the end of the 19th  century, in the 21st century modern era we are still enslaved by a cabal of the Big Six Tech Companies who want us to think, speak, write and elect only a government of their choice failing which we are ruthlessly censored or even forced to toe their line by threatening to leave us jobless.

So, the foundational principles of fundamental rights of freedom of speech, belief and ideology of every democratic and civilized society is trampled over by these tech giants to bend to their wills and conveniences.

With the advent of the digital world changing the face of communication and conducting business, the Big Six Companies, Microsoft, Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon became part of our daily existence. Now these Tech companies instead of serving according to the consumers’ need have started to play the Big Daddy to control our lives.

Irrespective of the total chaos in US Capitol Hill due to the legitimate concern of a large section of Americans, nearly 75 million people, who are agitated that the 2020 Presidential election was stolen by the American Deep State, we woke up to a new world of the outgoing President of America Donald Trump being banned by Facebook and Twitter. The Google Play Store and Apple Store followed suit by suspending ‘Parler’, an alternative micro blogging site used by Trump and his followers, for not placing a “robust content moderation” aka censoring voices which do not agree with the leftist-jihadi cabal wedded with the establishment and media in America.

Donald Trump was permanently banned from Twitter for “inciting violence” and violating its ‘civic integrity or violent threat policies’. It is noteworthy that the Indonesian President, Mahathir Mohamad who openly incited Muslims to kill millions of French citizens openly on twitter has not been banned by twitter. Incidentally, his tweet was also taken down by Twitter only after several days when overwhelming twitter users expressed their shock and anguish at the rabid Islamic jihadist mentality of hatred for non-Muslims by a sitting Head of State. Nor are rabid Islamists like Ayatollah banned on Twitter but we have POTUS Donald Trump and all his associates banned from twitter and all digital platforms.

If the President of America is not spared by the draconian Big Tech companies run by an ecosystem of communists and jihadis, who guarantee free speech to rabid jihadis and ultra-leftists whose ideology is to eliminate the other by mass murders, then who will be spared? Social media sites like the Twitter and Facebook hold mass murderers like Che Guevara, Mao, Stalin and Marxist ideologues as great intellectual revolutionaries. Twitter’s CEO, Jack Dorsey openly encourages spreading hate against Hindus and Hinduism.

Naturally, this ganging up of the Big Tech Giants to silence Trump and his 75 million supporters serves as a wake up call for all nationalist Indians who are proud of their Hindu identity and ancient Vedic heritage. For long, many pro-Hindu voices like TrueIndology have been censored by Twitter as they exposed the lies spread by the card-carrying members of the left in media and academia regarding Hinduism and the history of Islam and Christianity in India.

As the young BJP MP, Tejasvi Surya, said in his tweet today, “this must serve as a wake-up call for all who don’t yet understand threat to our democracies by unregulated tech companies. If they can do this to POTUS, they can do it to anyone. Sooner India reviews intermediaries, regulations, better it is for democracy.” He tagged his tweet to the Ministry of Electronics and IT.

Tejasvi Surya’s concern was shared by millions of Indian citizens and nationalist journalists like Aarti Tikoo Singh, Gaurav Sawant, Kanchan Gupta etc on twitter. Aarti was saying that she would migrate to Parler from twitter for safe guarding her freedom of expression only to realise that even that was suspended by Google Play Store and Apple Store.

So, now even if we do manage to make alternative micro blogging sites to avoid censoring by the Sharia Bolsheviks who run Twitter and Facebook, we would be taken down by Google, Apple, Microsoft and  Amazon which house 90% of the Apps used for connecting to like minded people and expressing one’s opinions freely.

We therefore stare at a situation which can be very well replicated in India during the General Elections in 2024 by the commies, jihadis and Christian missionary cabal who run regular print and electronic media like The Times of India, The Indian Express, The Hindu, NDTV, India Today, etc. and the social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook etc and love to hate Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the extent of openly wishing him death.

Now the question arises as to how to deal with this stranglehold of neo-colonialism by commies and Chrislamists on everything we use to communicate or run our businesses like Microsoft, Apple, Google, Amazon, etc from controlling our actions, beliefs and ensuring democratic values of free speech, free and fair elections in India and rest of the civilized countries of the world.

Firstly, we should enact laws to make them accountable for their arbitrary actions like silencing free speech or demonizing people who do not agree with their draconian communist-jihadi ideologies by levying prohibitive fines in the first instance and later ask them to wind up their business from India. For e.g., in America the POTUS Donald Trump and his political adversary Lindsey Graham a true Democrat in values, suggested by doing away with Section 230 of the Internet legislations in America, which provides immunity to the Big Tech Companies from being sued for third-party actions using their platforms. As Parler’s CEO John Matze says, if they want to suspend Parler for hosting Trump supporters, then Apple, Microsoft, Google etc should then be sued and banned for every bomb blast, murders and crime that happens using phones, other electronic devices and messaging platforms for the crimes committed by the users.

Alternatively, freedom loving civilized truly democratic people of India and across the world can resist these despicable arm-twisting techniques to fall in line by going back to paper and pen for conducting our businesses and reviving our postal system to hit these draconian Tech Giants financially by boycotting them till we make alternative Tech Giants not infested with throttlers of fundamental civilizational values.

Prime Minister Modi should therefore view the happenings in America and the atrocious manner in which POTUS Donald Trump and his followers, nearly 75 million Americans’ freedom of expression is silenced by the modern avatars of East India Company very seriously if he and the BJP do not wish to become the next victims of the Sharia Bolshevik cabal.
