In defence of online ads: The 'net ain't free and you ain't paying

Charles 9 Silver badge

"It isn't our fault that we leverage technology to disrupt industries that refused to do so."

Yes it is because we don't recognize how important some things are. We don't care about polluting water until we can't get a drink anymore. We don't care about honest reporting until there's nothing left but echo chambers. As someone once said, "Freedom ins't free," yet no one seems willing to pay. And that can take everyone else with them. What do you propose that won't provoke a potentially dangerous backlash?
