Facebook Won’t Say Whether Banned Individuals Can Use Libra Despite Claiming To Be ‘Politically Neutral’

Facebook Won’t Say Whether Banned Individuals Can Use Libra Despite Claiming To Be ‘Politically Neutral’. By Tyler Durden.

Facebook’s second day of Congressional hearings over Libra was by most accounts a total debacle – between Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-CA) suggesting that the social media giant ‘shouldn’t launch’ the cryptocurrency – as new currencies should be ‘left to democratically accountable institutions,’ and another lawmaker accusing the company of ‘winging it.’

Perhaps the most significant revelation, however, was Facebook executive and Libra head David Marcus giving a disturbing answer over whether individuals banned from Facebook will be allowed to use the digital currency, while also claiming that the Libra Association will remain politically neutral.

Imagine not being able to use the currency unless you agree to their politics. Brave new world!
