Re: Real people?

Real people don't want to be spied on as a matter of principle, yet it seems they are happy to have CCTV cameras on every street corner. They are also happy to post all of their most personal information onto Facebook and numerous other social media sites and pay good money to put an Amazon Alexa into their living room to ensure everything they say there can potentially be monitored. They will also gleefully download an App to their phone that animates pigs dancing (because its funny for 30 seconds and they can show their friends) with no regard to the fact that it is also a keylogger that is going to snoop the passwords to anything that is effectively secured by encryption.

Whilst real people say they don't want to be spied on the evidence suggests that 95% don't care enough to act like they do.
