Big Tech is failing

Jeremy Gilbert and Alex Williams in their Open Democracy article offer some insights into why they think “Big Tech is failing”.

The pair see two possible futures. “One is towards a green neosocialism… the other is a bleak fascist populism.”

For me both of these futures seem locked into tech giants. They’re not seeing that the platforms are part of the problem, part of the reason the latter is a possibility.

I think if you want a green future, if you want a future at all, the monopolies have to go.
