    The fact remains, whatever is said about any detail, that government and business collect information on people, and that information can be exploited in any number of undemocratic and criminal ways.

    Everything else is trivial.

    So, whatever the truth or falsity of any one point, the fact remains that at this moment we are living in a State that, in tandem with business, is able to watch people at a level that would make the tyrants of the 20th C cry with envy.

    And a few in the 21st C.

    If someone wants to say "this has been going on a long time, yawn" -- well, that's beside the point too.

    It was wrong then. If citizens went along with "well, it's been wrong so let it stay wrong" we'd still be living in outright feudal times in caste societies.
