Re: re:German minister:Drop Google, Facebook if fear US spying
said by Wilsdom:I'm sure the jack booted thugs in Washington do NOT have a world wide monopoly on criminality, but we have to start somewhere. To me, this is a good start and I'm sure that secure alternatives to the current gang of corporate lackeys will begin to spring up. In the mean time, hitting them where it hurts them most, in their wallets, will do.
Except rulers are the same everywhere. Germany might not have a direct line into facebook and google, but I'm sure they have plenty of access to domestic companies, and German police hack into citizens' computers and install surveillance software, which is certainly not less invasive.
