GAFA abbreviation the companies Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon, seen as one entity

But the spread of the term ‘GAFA’ may be as much to do with cultural resentment as taxes. ‘I think it’s more about distribution of power in the online world than tax avoidance,’ Liam Boogar, founder of the French start-up site, Rude Baguette, tells Quartz.

    Greetings,

    Where is one able to discuss the Vatican “legal name” (slavery), through fraud & deception?

    OR the 1302 Papal Bull, unanounced, “illegitimate” deceleration of “Unam Sanctam.” the first express trust in HIS-STORY, claiming ownership of everyone and everything in the world, including our souls?

    One is also wishing to discuss; “Personage”, “fraudulent joinder,” and the ALL TOO important, (Blacks Law) “false Personation.”

    The documentary,
    “Ring of power” by Grace Powers, is worth a look in. . .

    OR “your strawman dot com”

    😉 NAMASTE.
