The Internet, in the hands of the United States Supreme Court

Two lawsuits against Google and Twitter may decide the future of the Internet. Both lawsuits were filed in the United States Supreme Court by relatives of terrorist victims, who accuse these platforms of using algorithms to feed violence on social networks and promote ISIS material. All of this resulted in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, enacted in 1996, which allows large technology companies to control the content of their users on the Internet, but without taking responsibility for what they post. The judges of the Supreme Court, who acted in the cases, admitted that they did not understand the matter. Tech companies, for their part, claim that it is impossible to control all user logs and that algorithms must be used. But algorithms are also fallible. Undoubtedly, these cases have called into question the transparency of these platforms and once again affirmed that legal technology is far ahead. At least in the United States there has been an attempt to legislate.

My nephew writes to me: “I only ate two pears today.” It is true, I do not understand, because he never eats alone and, if there is no company…, he does not think to eat only two pears. it pleases them so much!

Social Security collapsed

Our country’s social security system is collapsing. No relative will accompany you without an appointment, but online or by phone they always answer that there are no prior appointments. In the labyrinth of the Social Security site, while you may be able to understand and manage it, you cannot see the status of your claim because the page always gives an error. They refer you to a phone that in turn puts you through to a robot that gives you several numbers where no one answers. The worst thing is that this group affects the poor: the elderly who cannot start the process of leaving, people requiring a minimum subsistence income and the disabled who are left without assistance. Serious clashes are already being created at the headquarters of the Social Security, many times the police have intervened to dissuade the people from protesting. Should more people be employed and workers return to offices and provide face-to-face care, there are offices in which teleworking is completely ineffective.

That fierce lobby comes

The hatred of politicians for transparency is incredible. We advance social rights that promote equality and promote freedom. However, the failure of the proposal to go ahead with political pressure groups to control groups is, ultimately, a political failure that will never eradicate corruption. Folly in the citizens and institutions. Will that day come when corruption is not so common in Spain? With transparency and pattern?
