To the billionaire donor class $100M is peanuts. At last count Jeff Bezos was raking in $238M a day.
Where'd it come from? Probably not out of their pockets. The billionaire donor class doesn't use their own money to get things done.
The internet...including and maybe even especially Facebook has done more to divide us than anything else. Perhaps Facebook did create a more open and connected world. But not too long ago dangerous radicals were mostly on their own. Perhaps gathering in small groups, drinking cheap whiskey or wine and sharing their dangerous thoughts only with each other. Facebook was able to bring them all together. The neo-nazis, the racists, the misogynists, bigots of all sorts were able to congregate in hate filled Facebook "groups". What might have been just pissdrunk radicals wallowing in their own vomit at the end of the night has expanded into school, church, and synagogue shootings spurred on by foriegn nationals posing as one of them and inciting them to violence.
Zuck seems like he was once a bright, promising young man who never imagined his platform would turn into what it is today.
But once they smell the money those bright promising young men become dark nightmares that haunt our very existence with their greed and avarice.
Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
