There is a huge difference between a private company collecting data to better serve you and the gov't collecting data to control you.

You don't have to give the grocery store your club card if you don't want to or you can shop someplace that doesn't use them.

I haven't figured out a way to opt out of gov't tyranny yet. Have you?

No business can send armed agents to your house to force you to buy their products. Only the govt can and does do that. Yet so many people fear business and believe the govt will protect them. There's no real evidence to support that belief, so I just call it a religious belief based on superstition. Just like Christians believe in heaven a lot of secular people believe in govt.

Christians aren't the only group to "believe in Heaven", but I digress.

I've got a frie....erm, "associate" of mine, totally HATES the "new" money, but is too-paranoid to deal in check-cards/paperless banking. So, all the cash he gets, he defaces by pulling the metalized filiment out of the bill - says that way, The Government won't be able to drive by his house and use their "Money Scanner" to see how much cash he has sequestered-away. He also refuses to have a computer in his house - says The Government has another scanner that can remotely monitor the electromagnetic signature of what you're looking-at on your computer screen, and can see what you're typing using another type of scanner that can read your keystrokes (all WITHOUT being hooked to any network).

Actually, for a while I worked for an agency that could do exactly that. It's not that hard.

The advent of LCD screens makes that quite a bit harder.

Well, it was a while ago. We used to read the signals from electric typewriters, too.
