Silicon Valley’s “Scalability” is turbo-amplified crime and political corruption

By Tom Seasort

When you pitch your start-up to a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley they have one big question for you: “How fast can it scale?”

What they are really asking you is this: “For the least amount of money I can give you, how quickly can you exploit the taxpayer funded internet and become a monopoly like Google and Facebook”.

By using the internet that Google and Facebook own, and that the government paid for with your tax dollars, they want to know if you can grab tiny amounts of cash from billions of consumers and advertisers and then bribe politicians, using that cash windfall, to help you kill all competitors amd cut them out of the market like Google and Facebook did.
