How is that something the government needs to be involved with? Hawley wants government-enforced automatic time limits on how we spend our time using lawful products.

Sure, he gives us a choice as to whether to remove the automatic government-mandated limits, but only because he must by the force of the First Amendment. But this is true authoritarianism, and it gets worse.

Hawley’s bill would also ban Facebook’s infinite scroll (which allows users to keep scrolling down their news feed in perpetuity), it would ban YouTube’s autoplay mode (which automatically plays another video based on what you’ve just watched, and can easily be turned off), and it would heavily restrict companies from offering awards to users based on their interaction with the platform.

Again, this is about mandating control over individual lives.
