      if only his words carried weight to people. alas, i'm sure this is in one ear and out the other for all the people in positions of power at facebook (and red alert for their lobbyists or whoever else they use to keep institutional power), and even moreso for people in power who dislike the idea of trust-busting or government regulation of companies like facebook, so while it's nice that he wrote it i doubt we're going to look back on it with any significance if/when facebook actually does get broken up in the nondescript future.
