Privacy, Secrecy, the Web, and Ads | The Brooks Review
As much as I’d like to place the blame squarely at the feet of the Government, I see little logic in that argument. Let’s step back and look at the U.S. at a macro level: The country we see does not seem concerned about privacy in the least. We blindly turn over troves of marketing data about ourselves, without even reading what will be done with that data, in the name of, well, getting our desired username on the latest and greatest service.
In that sense, PRISM truly seems to have been made in the image of American internet users.
