said by KodiacZiller:Of course if the two do not work together the government just makes laws requiring them to. And gets the law passed by saying said laws are to "Fight The Evil Terrorists" or they use the age old Spin "For the Children" and "Fight Child Pornography". said by Telco:
It's amazing how people are still scared of our government and have A to Z in tinfoil conspiracy theories.
All while private corporations that are not accountable to anyone are allowed to data-mine whatever they like about us. A practice rationally illegal in a range of industrialized nations.
No wonder every abroad thinks we are stupid, as we are obsessed with conspiracies about government, while we literally give free reign to fascist corporatism.
A corporation cannot put you in jail. A corporation cannot take away your rights or freedoms. A corporation is there to make money (a la Google with it's advertising). There's a big difference between a corporation invading your privacy and a crooked government. Of course the worst is when the two work together (as Google and NSA do).
