People with very little to lose take more risks than people with a lot to lose, and care less about possible negative outcomes.
Genetic make-up is a less than zero factor here.
Now, it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mind-bogglingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some have chosen to see it as the final proof of the NON-existence of God. The argument goes something like this:
"I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing."
"But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves that You exist, and so therefore, by Your own arguments, You don't. QED".
"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that." and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

Let me put it simply: We are not allowed to spy on our own citizens. Everybody else is fair game. Nobody ever said we couldn't share data with other (allied) intelligence agencies, so we got around the rule by spying on each others citizens and sharing the data. But now that we have been tasked with near impossible tasks we have turned to spying on our own citizens directly, and this is a new development for foreign intelligence services, whether you are aware of it or not. The fact that these are nationals living abroad is the main loophole.

"Increases chance" is not the opposite of "does not necessarily mean".

And to add to that the taxi's in Amsterdam are run by the police in every way except legally. The police work for Ajax and Heineken. Their main function is to destroy any new criminal acts or people muscling in on somebody's scam. Ergo no Uber.
