Correction, "Ex-intel officials tell Congress breaking up Big Tech" --> will cut into the government's (specifically intelligence agencies) ability to "control it's citizens" as a result of them NOT having unfettered access to spy/monitor/investigate/bully/coerce/eliminate ANYONE.
In other words, they want us to "give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety" - now where have I heard that before?
