What else did one expect?

Governments want the control of their citizens and non-citizens. Doesn't matter which government as they all want this control. The voice of dissent for privacy and security are ignored and not heard by the governments nor businesses.

Perhaps, someday, when enough businesses have had their customer base stolen and enough customers turn away from the internet like it's a bad part of town...maybe. But until that day, we as users of the internet and online customers are f**ked. And lack of privacy AND security will get worse before it gets better.
