Too Long; Didn't Read

When news broke that a firm was able to illegally harvest, analyze and use our own data against us, we were horrified. We couldn’t believe that a scheme like this could run for so long undetected. The bodies to which we had entrusted power i.e Big Tech had failed us. This was the tipping point. People finally had enough.

It is time countries hold corporations accountable to their actions and corporations begin to proactive put out the fires they unknowingly create.
