24. Put Zuckerberg in jail. Regulate social media. All speech is NOT protected speech. There must be

consequences for public officials flat out lying. The media must also be held accountable for spreading lies. Thorny issues indeed that need to be addressed by people far smarter than me. It used to be that broadcast licenses to transmit information and entertainment over the airways were held to a standard. Now we must regulate all broadcast media, cable, and the internet, and hold them to some minimum standard of decency and truth. Fox News and Facebook should not be permitted to use their power of persuasion to destabilize our government. Lawmakers should be held accountable for spreading blatantly false and dangerous lies. You do not have the freedom to take down our government claiming you are exercising your 1st amendment right. And we must deal with the illegitimate SCOTUS that will sit by and rubber stamp the RW theocratic march towards authoritarianism with their dangerous interpretation of the Constitution as a static document. To be sure, our founding fathers are rolling in the graves over the condition of our country.
