Is TikTok the next WMD?

The US house and senate voted overwhelmingly in favour of military action based on the perceived threat of “Weapons of Mass Destruction”.

Perhaps such case-specific (and certainly important) matters are a parliamentary system’s achilles heel.

With 100M+ users of Tiktok in the US, perhaps a referendum would be better – something that could happen in the Irish political structure.

BTW, this isn’t an open and closed case of applying reciprocity, although reciprocity provides one useful lens. There’s little that is reciprocal about liberalism or notions like human rights – they are principle based not reciprocity based.
