The Tyranny of Big Tech

Josh Hawley

Overview

The U.S. constitution guarantees that the government may not restrict people's freedom of speech. But what happens when public speech is restricted and controlled by a handful of private corporations?

Josh Hawley is a Republican senator for Missouri and former attorney general who took on Facebook and Google for violating anti-trust and consumer protection laws. As senator, Hawley has continued to hold the tech giants to account, believing that their insidious and growing power must be confronted.

While the power and influence of big business is nothing new, Hawley maintains that the pervasive influence of tech in society is different not just in degree but in kind. With wide-ranging examples and a crusading sense of mission, this book presents a cogent case for putting checks on these unelected masters of our fate.
