belong to you. Feel free to give them away to whomever you like but don’t be surprised if it backfires.
With every new day and new news about Facebook I’m happy I’m not “in”. If you just google for my name you can get a lot of information. And
I know this will stay forever. Yes I’m unimportant and nobody but maybe one or two cares. That’s fine with me. But I write what I think and “reveal” what
I want and what I decide.
With Facebook I know all my data are in access to Facebook, who am I to know to whom they give access even if I would not agree?
I simply do not know. Facebook needs desperately new sources of income. There stocks still are hell of expensive, and they must earn much more to get
just near somewhat rational regions. So If they’d earn 10 billions one might things that 90 billions are “fair” priced, But
So what else but your data should drive it’s profits.
If you feel Facebook offers something to you then fine use it, but I for my part have decided that I want mine to stay mine. I do not want even more advertisements in my
mail box, nor do I like to get stuffed with it every day, every click. In Germany the biggest advisor for debt handling Schufa have announced to start collecting user information
on facebook for their credit rankings. How would you like that? I can just say, I’m not amused.
And within 5 years I’m sure you state agencies will put pressure on Facebook to get hands on our data. Of course all for the greater goog of the american state. And they will tell, those who do not have anything to hide can simply disclose that information. Well I guess they will do it even more “subtle”. I bet Facebook will find a way to provide them with your data. Backdoors, hacker attacks, viruses, trojan horse, I don’t doubt it a second that NSA should be able to crack accounts in the hundreds of thousands if they are inclined and told to do so. Your data? Not if you give them away that freely…..
Well it seems that Ghaddaffi was “gone”.. That itself probably is good news. Now there will be some interims government. The people of Lybia now have chances hardly ever seen by countries like ours. The chances are gigantiv and the risks not less.
If they embrace sound money, no corruption, money as value and debt free government. They will strive without comparison
Unfortunatly for them it seems most of the interrims government were risen and “de”-educated in developed country. So I’m nearly sure that they will follow the developed countries. I do not think corruptoin will be fought very hard. I do not think they will not have a central bank nor “gold-money” they. The bureaucrats from the IMF, etc will come and suggest them they can not use gold as money.
If they will not embrace austrian economics they will be just another dictatorship this time under “green” authority.
If I’d live in Lybia I’d ask for the following:
1) civil rights
2) free markets and freedom of contracts
2) sound money based on gold or anything else of value
3) no acceptance for corruption
4) no debts allowed for the government
I’m afraid they will get
1) civil rights
2) Bureaucrats (probably too much in too short time, Argument we can not trust markets)
3) regulated markets and limits to freedom of contract (e.g not the freedom to accept anything but gold for payment
4) “democratic” parties
5) central bank and fractional reserve
8) tons of corrupton and “worthless” money
The chanced of the first are surely below 1% so I bet that Lybia will just get another France …. The bastard bureacrats from hell will do their best to start a new round
of suppression, theft, black mailing etc. It’s not that they will want freedom for everyone, but support of the population for their vermins
