Here’s a great piece from CNN today that pretty much sums up where we’re at as far as privacy – there is none. It’s so good, it deserves it’s own post.
What blows my mind is that we got here without a fight. People complain about guns, politics, taxes – you name it. But just about no one, is complaining about the loss of privacy — which means the loss of freedom. Because without privacy, there is no freedom. While we were busy complaining, the kids with white socks came in and stole our privacy — and freedom. But they didn’t really steal it — because people helped them. It just blows my mind, that no one cares about this.
Doesn’t anyone care that everything they say, everything they do, everywhere they go, is being tracked and mined? Are you kidding me?
People think we’re free? We’re not. Not even close. Not only did people get duped by social media and free apps, they lined the owners of these companies pockets with money. So let’s get this straight. People gave away their privacy and their freedom, and made the folks rich — who duped them. This has got to be, the greatest con of all time.
