MENLO PARK, CA—In an effort to curtail the organization’s outsized influence, Facebook announced Monday that it would be implementing new steps to ensure the breakup of the U.S. government before it becomes too powerful. “It’s long past time for us to take concrete actions against this behemoth of governance that has gone essentially unchecked since its inception,” said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, noting that while the governing body may have begun with good intentions, its history showed a culture of recklessness and a dangerous disregard for the consequences of its decisions. “Unfortunately, those at the top have been repeatedly contemptuous of the very idea of accountability or reform, and our only remaining course is to separate the government into smaller chunks to prevent it from forming an even stronger monopoly over the public.” Zuckerberg closed his remarks with repeated assurances that despite a likely legal battle ahead, no one government could stand up to the fortitude of Facebook.

    Really interesting Mark that you didn’t feel that way when all of your adreno buddies were in charge. You guys need to give it up and accept that you have had your run and now the sane people who still have full ownership of their souls(really not that hard) take it from here. Bye bye long past relevant loser.

    Politicians should not be allowed to use propaganda to support their personal agendas on FB or any other social Media-They have contributed funds to launch their campaigns to be elected!
