„Silicon Valley is engaged in many idealistic pursuits, such as creating tools to treat disease, finding better ways to care for the elderly, and improving car, train, and air travel. But it can’t mistake these noble efforts as solutions for the real negative side effects of its dominance. For years it was fashionable, even necessary, for tech companies to be an agnostic conduit for all flavors of web traffic, news, ads, and politics. It’s now apparent, in demands that they pledge to refuse to build a Muslim registry, for example, that the old neutrality will no longer fly. This is the price of primacy: Silicon Valley is going to have to take a stand.“
