Yes, I am. The step between regulations and censorship/monitoring is thin in my opinion. It’s not in yours, I get it. It’s a free web :)
GDPR is not even enforced yet. True. My point is: if you make a mental experiment and pretend that it was enforced back when the CA breach happened. What would have happened?
No difference, in my opinion.
CA acquires the IDs, builds a model geared toward ads micro-targeting, and GDPR did not prevent anything.
So if GDPR style regulation is not effective, which regulation may be effective?
2. North Korea and China control both how and what you share on social media. The two things go together. It’s not possible to control what you share if you don’t control how you share. You think that controlling how we share and communicate, is not the first step in controlling what we share. You think that consolidating the market into a few players using regulations is not the first step in controlling what we share. I think it is. The web is free because of the competition it creates. Again, it’s my opinion.
