Are you surprised to see complete disrespect of privacy laws?

Too many previous slave owners and their descendants still lives and have say in politics. It was serious error by US population not to charge them with crimes and let them keep the wealth acquired by using slave labor.
Today that money are being used heavily in politics to induce laws to enslave people's digital lives and treat us like objects: credit agencies, info-search databases, social security numbers etc.
Privacy is treated as something that can be converted to dollar figure.

This "slavery mentality" must change or eliminated before we can talk about keeping our lives private.

This type of mentality is still strong, their success depends on suffering others, in order to win some have to lose.
Don't expect CEO's to give up any gains, their families, often previous slave owners raised them to keep wealth within "trusted" circle .
