Re: "using people's cellphone numbers, provided for 2FA to target them with adverts"
Which is really terrifying when you consider political campaigns.
Politics is one thing, but, it is slow and inefficient; How about not bothering with the political process at all, since one could be getting a reasonable solid list of people being homos, left-wing, jewish, female + about town + muslim, not-swedish-enough - and then sending the thicko boys round to sort them out and really explain things to them!?
All it takes, for anyone today, to run ones own private morality police service is: A FB business account, a little money, some nutters who like violence and some targeted advertising.
