The Internet: a New Year's resolution

"The law must stand up to the digital phenomenon. Facebook must respond as it responds to a newspaper or a television channel. Is not a whim, it is of justice."

Missing a few days for that many people spend their time to this thing, so classic as are the resolutions of New Year. This chronicler is not very fond of them, and not just because it's not often meet, but this time I would suggest a resolution collectively to the community of democratic countries in 2019: integrating finally, this huge nebula called the internet, and in particular the large companies that dominate, in the rule of law.

you are Not far from having the same problems as other social networks, from Twitter to Instagram. And as you can not expect that their responsible, civic-mindedness and altruism innate (which until now have not been shown to), put coto directly to these abuses, the law must finally face up to the digital phenomenon. Facebook must respond as it responds to a newspaper or a television channel. Is not a whim. It is justice, and is necessary for the democratic process to stop deteriorate in the West, for the happiness of the autocrats in the rest of the world.
