'superseded by toothless federal legislation that is bought and paid for by ... Google & Facebook'

Its hard to argue against that because Govt is fundamentally divided in their loyalties. Right now they're looking at China 2020 'Social-Credit-Score' and thinking... Wow - that looks useful...

Have an activist / protestor / human-rights reporter in your family or circle of friends? Your score suffers. You can't take a flight, get into university, get a job, get a date. That's population control. Embarrassing public officials or calling out corruption?

Never again! Meanwhile in the west Facebook & Google are buying up everything, including medical / patient / health and banking & credit-card transactions... And Insurers are now insisting on IoT live-feeds. See where this is all going???
