We need a social network and a retail platform publicly owned that will allow us to buy directly from manufacturers at the lowest cost to dramatically cut the expense of living.

We are giving now a share to big tech companies for most of the products we buy instead of buying these products directly from manufacturers.

There are 5 million sellers on Amazon www.feedbackexpress.com and 7 million advertisers on Facebook www.digiday.com right now there are billions of products we buy through these platforms instead of buying them at the original price directly from manufacturers.

Advertising the products on Facebook means that the stores need to increase the price because of the expenses with advertising so instead of buying any product directly from manufacturers we are paying double or triple the original price.

Physical retail stores are replaced by online commerce, in 10 years we'll buy everything from Amazon and Facebook paying a percent to this platforms for every product purchased if we don't act to change this abnormality.

Rebuilding Facebook and Amazon platforms can be done with less than Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg earn in one day allowing us to buy any product directly from manufacturers at a much lower cost than we buy now.

​These are basic public services we need to own, as long as these services are sold by private companies the entire society needs to pay a much higher price for every good we buy than it's actually worth.

We can see now all products in one place, we can compare them and get all information about a product, so we can decide which product to buy at the right price directly from the manufacturers.

We can not continue to use social media networks and retail platforms owned by private companies, these are public services used by all people so it needs to be owned by people in order to pay the right price for each product we buy and reduce the cost of living.
