As most of you know I’m a huge fan of Simple, Powerful and Direct. Particularly when others show the skill.
So I am moving a comment up the Post level.
Third News is responsible for this:
“It is much more complex than just the ability to know gossip -the media has done a disservice in pushing this narrative.
The mined data will profile your political slant and its use will likely mimic and mushroom the IRS’s strategy of denying organizations their tax status, slow-playing with massive paperwork, intrusive and illegal questioning, and telling organizations they may not use their right to free speech, nor protest.
First, the data (is) collected on individuals, ergo, it is presumable that the person is the target.
So what can happen? We don’t know yet but it will be possible to rate you for loyalty to the political party in charge, or for the cost-effectiveness of your healthcare, and for your ability to pay more taxes…we just don’t know.”
This is “Why it Matters”.
American Citizens should not have this as a concern… ever. And we were designed not to.
(I made very minor edits… If I changed the intent in any way I’ll let News correct me in comments.)
