The Death of Privacy

Kaa Re:Why is this surprising? (304 comments)

Our economic system is based on the idea of "profit at all costs." I mean, isn't this what we wanted and fought the cold war for?

Um, no. Our economic system is based on the idea of economic freedom -- which does include the freedom for people and organisations to pursue "profit at all costs" (as long as it's within the law).

The alternative is government bureacrats deciding what the economy should do and -- how shall I put it politely? -- the historic record of such guidance isn't stellar.
