“Critics of the big tech companies are often told, ‘If you don’t like the company, don’t use its products.’ I did this experiment to find out if that is possible, and I found out that it’s not—with the exception of Apple. These companies are unavoidable because they control internet infrastructure, online commerce, and information flows. Many of them specialize in tracking you around the web, whether you use their products or not”

In the 19th century, Western Christians made a copy of the Bible without anti-slavery / anti-oppression passages, which allowed them to preach a "gospel" that encouraged slaves to accept their lot. While today's fundamentalist Christians probably have enough respect for their book not to literally print abridged copies, they nevertheless DON'T respect their book enough to stop screening those ideas out in practice.

I'm getting to a place where I just hate browsing the web, especially on my phone. Websites are so fucking bloated, elements (ads, 99% of the time) pop into place and push the small amount of relevant shit out of the way, the content takes upwards of 20-30 seconds to load. It's really almost as if people don't want us viewing their sites.
Holy shit, Facebook is paying teenagers to install a root certificate on their phones so they can snoop on all of their internet traffic
Not a joke, this is actually a thing which is happening right now
