Yet another secret moves into mainstream understanding only to be given little attention. Not that it was unknown before but no one seemed to mind that data collection on the most massive scale imaginable was being used (and is still being used) to track and predict what people do online. Creepy.
I would have expected more of a public outrage from the knowledge of this reality. Especially U.S. Citizens who know that we have constitutional protections in place that make these offenses of invasive data collection a felony. Mainstream media is slanted, obtuse and entirely blind to anything that doesn’t attract attention (regardless of what kind) or sell products.
Verizon, the largest data carrier in the world has been collecting (and selling) U.S. citizens personal information for over 15 years.
