Project Vertias Does it Again
March 16, 2021
[NEW YORK – Mar. 15, 2021] Project Veritas released a new undercover video today in which Benny Thomas, Facebook’s Global Planning Lead, revealed that Facebook has too much power and that government action is not only warranted but necessary to limit the damage the Big Tech giant does to society.
KING ZUCK: Facebook Global Planning Lead Reveals Need for Government Intervention: ‘The Single Biggest Thing is this Company Needs to be Broken Up’...‘No King in the History of the World has been the Ruler of Two Billion People, but Mark Zuckerberg is'
Thomas expressed his desire to see Big Tech companies held to account and laid out a vision for how to accomplish that goal.
“I would break up Facebook, which means I would make less money probably -- but I don't care. Like that's what needs to be done. Instagram, Facebook Messenger, Oculus, WhatsApp -- they all need to be separate companies. It's too much power when they’re all one together,” he said.
Thomas said he was concerned by the lack of public awareness around Facebook’s excessive power. He specifically mentioned the influence Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg exerts over the company.
“Most people don’t understand these things and most people don’t think about them -- which is why a lot of sh*t goes down because a lot of people aren’t paying attention,” Thomas said.
“No king in the history of the world has been the ruler of two billion people, but Mark Zuckerberg is -- and he’s 36. That’s too much for a 36-year-old. You should not have power over two billion people. I just think that’s wrong,” he said.
