Today Tucker Carlson said that the greatest threat to our liberty was no longer the federal government, but is now big corporations.
Tucker Carlson: The biggest threat to liberty is no longer the federal government. It's big companies. pic.twitter.com/JUK09bfnXC— Samuel Hammond 🌐🏛 (@hamandcheese) July 15, 2019
Tucker Carlson is abjectly wrong.
Hewlett-Packard can’t kick my door in, shoot my dog, and take my kids. Facebook has never planted false evidence on me. Amazon doesn’t seize my assets before I’ve been convicted of a crime.
Best Buy doesn’t have qualified immunity that protects it from liability if it breaks the law and harms me.
Government does all of these things.
The greatest threat to liberty is, and always has been, government. Not the private sector. There’s a bright line there that only a fool would purposely blur.
