Article note: We don't need to "Ban TikTok!" because it's likely a Chinese intelligence op, we need real data-protection laws that ban _everyone_ from engaging in that kind of invasive data collection behavior.
But our government is broken and the interests of the domestic competitors to TikTok, the interests of the domestic intelligence agencies, and the interests of the domestic public manipulators are all aligning to make the discussion about setting up some kind of national ban/firewall on TikTok and fucking up the Internet by letting the US government censor "undesirables" (determined by those currently in power) online, instead of fixing the Internet and forbidding the problematic data collection behavior for all players.Comments
