This concentration of power as a means to absolute power is the threat that warrants continued identification, exposure and accountability

Some may say we dont have a right to privacy as we consume and use social media applications and platforms. Some, like Apple, will say the right to privacy is an inherent right. Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, left Facebook over data collection. According to reports, Wozniak is one of up to 50 million Facebook users who have deleted their accounts in protest. Data sharing and mining has become the latest political quagmire for Mark Zuckerberg, and others, who must now provide answers to Congress and their users.
Sean, I really tried to read your article but the ads were so awful and distracting that I’ve now added CFP to my blocked list.
Now I won’t even visit the site by accident.
The ACA escalated a major trend in healthcare data collection: The HHS/CMS/CDC/Bureaucrats bribe (give welfare) to medical providers, to big insurance and big IT for the bureaucrats to have access to all your health information.
And their platform for data exchange/data access is the criminal justice system approach. So the dream is that all DOJ/FBI/DHS data will be matched to all health data. And of course, all HAVA-Help America Vote voter database data is in the mix.
One quick change in the system and every gun sale inquiry is in the BIG DATA.
Central Planning failed in the past because the bureaucrats didn’t have enough data. Now the possession of all data is in sight. With all data, and AI-Artificial Intelligence the bureaucrats will be able to finally make Central Planning work and make better decisions for your life than you can.
