Regulating the Internet as a Utility
Dr. John R. "Buck" Surdu 10/16/2021 5:01 AM
I am not legal scholar, but it seems to me that the way the Internet platform providers are being regulated has given them monopoly powers to regulate content in a way that is a de facto limitation on free speech. This article provides some discussion of abusive and monopolistic behavior by Internet companies, some background on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, and a modest, perhaps naiive, suggestion on a way forward.

Amerika Under Leftist Autocracy, part 2
Dr. John R. "Buck" Surdu 9/25/2021 5:01 AM
Last week we experienced two glimpses into what the vision of America is for the Left. It is not a Constitutionally based federal system in which authority is shared between the states and the federal government or a system in which the checks and balances provided by the Founding Fathers, those misogynistic, racist, evil white guys. Instead, the vision of Amerika offered by the Left, the woke, the racist "anti-racist," fascist "anti-fascists," the Democrats, and their media stooges is one in which the puppet masters issue edicts by fiat through the vacuous, honorless, and feckless chief executive.

Last week we experienced two glimpses into what the vision of America is for the Left.

Fathers largely are being erased by the Left, but the contribution of Fathers is important to our children and our society.
