Liberty and regulation

For those people who are interested and feel uneasy because of the major tech companies colluding with each other to censor certain brands of views and de-platform them, what kind of regulations or lack thereof do you predict there will be on specific monopolies like YouTube, Facebook and twitter, as well as other platforms or the internet as a whole in the future?

A distinct but interrelated question, would you like to see more censorship or lesser censorship on the internet, and what would motivate either of those decisions?

They can't ban their user base and wont risk direct confrontation with the manifest will of the American people. Regulation isn't the problem here: it's the social weaponization of political correctness. Once people begin to refuse to accept and tolerate it by fighting back and starting quagmires,then the bad press, hassle and cost of such battles will result in social media corps backing away from engaging in censorship. It's no different than the fall of the Soviet Union: the whole thing is based on an artificial representation of reality that is entirely fictitious. Once the illusion is shattered then the power and control disappears.
