“Thanks to Google, Facebook, and all the other data-gathering operations being run out of Silicon Valley, children born in the last decade will have no concept of privacy.

These companies will record, monitor, and track every single thing they do online. The word ‘privacy’ will be a meaningless term to them….

These Silicon Valley giants gather mindboggling amounts of highly personal data on their 4 billion combined users.

They then hawk it to advertisers… and even pass it on to the National Security Agency (NSA), via court-approved electronic eavesdropping programs….

Every traditional digital financial transaction you’ve ever made – credit card payments, bank transfers, even ATM withdrawals – has been tracked, stored, and monitored.”

-Chris Lowe
