People often say that private companies have no duty to uphold the Constitution. But that's kind of the problem, isn't it? The government knows they can't directly violate our Constitutional rights themselves, so they get Big Tech and other corporations to do it for them. All this corporate surveillance, corporate censorship, corporations forcing people to go along with the government's agenda or get fired - it's all done on behalf of a government that wants to be more authoritarian, but knows that the Constitution is an obstacle to this goal, so they use their influence over corporations to basically bypass the Bill of Rights and exert authoritarian power over citizens indirectly. This is their game, and you're falling for it. Everyone knows that the US is not a democracy, it's an oligarchy. The corporate oligarchs are the de facto government. They're the ones that call the shots, and the government and corporations work together to oppress the citizens.
