#2 Back to Company Towns. My dad was raised on a coal mining company town in W.Virginia. When Grandpa lost his leg in a mining accident, their family was evicted from the town. I'm sure Big Tech will be better because "Do No Evil"

#8 Yup - Democrats really miss their slaves. Having people totally dependant on the government for food, housing, and healthcare doesn't have quite the same feeling.
