Did you notice? A little bi-partisanship has broken out in Congress! It can happen! Dogs and cats can get along, after all. Who knew?
The cause is an interesting re-alignment going on. Historically, we have viewed our leaders as “right or left” or as Republicans or Democrats. That may be changing to globalists or nationalists. The new bi-partisan hearings are a joint effort of Republican nationalists and Democratic nationalists. (This reflects the continuing backlash against globalization — a great idea that was so poorly executed by Congress.)
Although I am globalist-to-the-core, I applaud these new hearings, where Congress is finally taking a hard look at the power of Big Tech, like Google, Facebook, etc. Companies like this can abuse their power by over-charging customers, limiting competition, and mocking our privacy laws. Go get’em, nationalists!
After that, I hope the nationalists will fix globalization, but please don’t “throw-out-the-baby-with-the-bath-water.” The globalists will be glad to help you fix it!
