The Companies Enforcing the Vaccine Mandate – The Burning Platform

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been identified as a “captured agency” for catering to the telecom and cable industries for decades (see 1, 2).  This has led to numerous lawsuits filed against it including one filed by a group of telecom experts (“The Irregulators”) that determined the agency had allowed telecom and cable companies to overcharge Americans for decades (see 1, 2) and not provide paid-for services.  Despite these findings, the overcharging has continued and recently led to additional government funds being allotted for…

Terms of service from Big Tech do not often protect basic human rights.  The metaverse is envisioned as a version of the internet with three-dimensional virtual environments….
