No, but substantially increase penalties for continuous violations of privacy data laws

I support a study or inquiry to determine the degree to which these corporations engage in anti-competitive activities; if they are truly forming monopolistic companies, they should face the same kind of counter-monopoly rules as other major corporations.

@5Z8DMCG from Tennessee answered…5mos

Not necessarily but Facebook and Google should be regulated to prevent the spread of misinformation.

@92JXK3J from New York answered…5mos

No, but the government should do everything in it's power to increase competition and free trade and ensure that these companies do not monopolize, even if it involves tax breaks, and ensure they respect the first amendment.

@92C6SMF from Maryland answered…5mos

No this is unconstitutional, but the companies should be reviewed for antitrust violations.

@924MYCK from GU answered…5mos

No, but they should be regulated to prevent monopolies, and close all loopholes to ensure they are paying their taxes. Also, we should enforce laws that ensure they are providing adequate wages and working conditions for their employees.

@93JR7Y7from Quebec  answered…5mos

No, instead, collectivise them, and give the shares to the people who do the work.

@8NWQH6W from California answered…6mos

Any company that engages in anti-competitive behavior should be broken up.

@93DGHQ9from British Columbia  answered…6mos

@9334YP3 answered…7mos

The government has no business breaking up businesses, it should instead seize Amazon, Facebook and Google's assets and distribute those to the victims of their crimes.

@92XJ38Y from New York answered…7mos

Yes, but only if the companies are found to be using anti-competitive practices.

no, but huge entities should be restricted in donating to political candidates.

@3HNRB33 answered…7mos

Unfortunately I want to be able to give a yes or no, but I do not know enough about this to know for sure where I lean. I see the pros and cons of both sides and I've benefited from the services and/or convenience that amazon and google have provided although I'm dissatisfied with many of the policies at the same time.

@92JCZ6T from California answered…7mos

No. The US should handle that issue because Amazon, Facebook, and Google are headquartered in the US.

 @MSelvig from Wyoming answered…8mos

Not yet, but we should make sure they are following all laws and statutes related to their market.

@9285VQ6New Democraticfrom Newfoundland  answered…8mos

Yes kind-of, definitely tax them to pieces. Perhaps for things like Amazon and Facebook, but government regulated of information sources gets tricky.

@Araxielfrom Ontario  answered…8mos

No, because that's not how international online platforms function (e.g. breaking up YouTube makes no sense, and worst-case scenario would just cause further echo-chambers)

@8ZVHZPZ from North Carolina answered…9mos

No, but large companies, such as those should have welfare checks on the employees a lot more, to make sure they're treated well.

@8ZT5SNWfrom Ontario  answered…9mos

No, but there should be more regulation to ensure worker health and safety

 @ForWheelen from Florida answered…9mos

@8ZN4YG4from British Columbia  answered…9mos

Only if there is evidence that shows that they are actively interfering with the markets, and making it hard for others to compete. There are other ways that you can reduce the influence, such as banning false content, hate speech, etc.

@8ZMG2VVNew Democraticfrom British Columbia  answered…9mos

The government should create their own search engine and online supply network to compete with these private companies.

@8ZGJXDJ from Florida answered…9mos

Instead of them being broken up we should investigate their shady business practices and stomp down on them.
