Justice Minister Judit Varga on Friday met Thierry Breton, the European Commissioner for the Internal Market, to discuss the Hungarian government’s work on the transparency of tech giants, and will meet executives of Google in the near future to discuss the same.
Varga said on Facebook that bringing tech giants to comply with national regulations and to operate transparently was an issue “everyone in the world” was interested in.
Hungary’s Digital Freedom Committee
“has already made resolute actions to prepare the establishment of an EU-wide regulation”,
Varga said. She briefed Breton on the Hungarian developments, who praised the measures and “also asked for our patience before submitting a Hungarian law,” Varga said.
The government wants to make tech giants’ operations “legal, transparent and controllable … nothing more than what applies to other companies and small businesses too,” Varga said.
Varga will therefore
accept the invitation of Google executives to a meeting,
and “initiate similar consultations with the leaders of Facebook and other technology giants,” she said.
Until Facebook and other publicly accessible social groups and media outlets are regulated to punish sites that ban users for their opinions no matter what they may be, or ghost member post so that no one other than the poster can see them or in anyway punish users for their post that do NOT threaten public safety, these sites should be blocked from availability online in The European Union. Disliking a politician, a group that advocates morality or supports an ethnic group or religion or wants closed borders should not be an acceptible reason to ban or block post from having their post appear on social media. Advocating punishment from criminals that could include jail or even execution should allowed to appear online. The only reason a user should be banned or censored is if they post pornographic images. Other than that reason any site that allows public access to posting should be required to tolerate all material posted and allow it to remain online in its original posted form. .People need to grow up and learn that just because it offends their personal beliefs, that should NOT give them the right to silence another person or groups views from heard. GROW UP PEOPLE if you do not agree with someone be an adult and move along to content that you agree with.
