This is a very interesting expose' discussing the intrusive nature of Big Tech and it's ability to record your every move for the purpose of selling your predictive habits and/or activities and/or buying habits to them who are willing to pay for your information. Very intrusive and it's happening right under our noses and without our consent (I should say ... informed consent):

But the Government IS doing it. It's in bed with Big Tech. Nevertheless ... if you haven't watched the entire video then you're missing some important information. When a company knows your every thought, emotion, belief, and opinion and uses that information to manipulate your buying habits or, even worse, your voting habits then you've become a puppet. Worse yet ... they're targeting young people with impressionable minds.

What. 30 years ago they could bounce a laser off a window from space and hear every thing in the room. The big computers listen in on every satellite and cable call and have been doing so for many years.

When you go to the store they scan you as well as your goods. Everything you do on the internet is recorded.

I have no fear of what I actually do/say, but it worries me greatly what "they" can manufacture. All necessary "proof" will be presented right after the execution.

It was sarcasm.

An impression of your mainstream GOP/ libertarian/ democrat voting block.

Typically they don't care how big corp. controls, manipulates, spies on them because they believe that its not the government doing it and everybody should know better when they agreed to or read the 350,000 word terms of service or usage legal document that even they don't understand.

Often times, even with evidence provided by mainstream sources and government documents highlighting the incestuous relationship between big business (particularly big tech) and government they will still trot out that its a "conspiracy theory".

Believing that big business is literally working against the best interests of most people will net the same old tired ass response usually invoking the words communist or socialist.

Remote laser sensing 30 years ago could not hear everything in a room from even low orbit and you really need to unlearn a lot of this hokum.

Truth to your words. But "they" are honing their skills at information gathering and are manipulating people in real time. You can discuss eyeglasses with your wife on the phone. Within seconds ... you can get an ad on your phone for Lenscrafters' two-for-one sale. You can text someone that you're not happy about a particular, governmental policy and in short time get a message from a political candidate who opposes that very policy. It's literal mind control in real time. Many of us on this site are "on to" what's going on but the vast majority of Americans (especially the very young) are pawns and puppets.
