The proposed US law called Protecting Kids on Social Media it would have five main components:
Delegation to Social Media (former censors during COVID-19 and still) to also verify the age of all user holders, including adults.
Prohibition of minors 13 years of using social media (currently 16).
Delegation to Social Media to obtain parental or guardian consent before minors over the age of 12 years and under the age of 18 years can use social media.
Prohibition on using minors' data (anyone over 12 years and less than 18 years) to inform a social media platform's content recommendation algorithm.
Creating a pilot program digital identification, established by the Department of Commerce, for citizens and legal residents, to check parent age and relationships / minor-guardian.
This law, as well as being essentially useless, it doesn't even have a technical reason, because each parent can conveniently install monitoring software on their PC and phone,so there is no reason to give the Government this task. Unlike, giving the government the right to control access to the internet is extremely dangerous for freedom of expression and information, therefore for democracy. Furthermore, the European Convention on Human Rights prohibits interference by public administration in receiving and sending information. A recording request is interference, therefore a violation of human rights. But this will concern the Council of Europe, as long as he wakes up from his coma in Dombass. Unfortunately it is clear that the USA is no longer the home of freedom, they haven't been for a long time if they ever were, and unfortunately they currently play the role of dominator of the West. There are still some of my readers who believe that the system to which we belong is a democracy and not rather a dictatorship, albeit a very sophisticated one in making fools believe they are free.?
Unfortunately there is only one piece of evidence on the state of citizens' information: there are those who believe in TV and there are those who no longer believe in it.
