Re: Why Facebook etc., will win...

"No matter how much effort we go to individually to fight this, it is clear that the vast majority will not fight, not even realizing that there is something to fight about."

As I've said before, for most people it's only when they personally are directly and identifiably affected that they sit up and take notice - just as (for example) people only realise the need to back up valuable data when something goes wrong and they lose valuable data.

And the worst part is that n months down the line they'll forget and fall into old habits - people are stupid.
