U.S. Senator Diane Feinstein's remarks

Addressing lawyers for Facebook, Google and Twitter in testimony about Russian interference in Presidential election:

“I don’t think you get it,” she said. “You bear this responsibility. You created these platforms, and now they are being misused. And you have to be the ones who do something about it.” Feinstein paused. “Or we will.”

Something to think about.

Notice who was not addressed.

The maker/creator of the Web

The current development team of Tor (no longer the navy btw)

The makers or creators of protocols

The owners of dropbox or AWS or other cloud provider

And so many others

The point being that these are social network giants. They are not the creators of storage or netowrking protocols.

Maidsafe are creators of storage and network protocols.

If the SAFE network had been live for years and this happened they would have addressed not Maidsafe but the people/owners of social networks running on the SAFE network.


She is advocating censorship. What needs to be done is getting rid of sponsored media as this is a point of sponsored media, censorship is the point of sponsored media. It is why there is money in politics and why law is being reduced to bribery. There is no greater conflict of interest.
