    It's a slippery slope, like the fact that my son's friends all assume privacy is a done deal, and it's not a big deal because they don't
    have
    anything to hide.

    It should be up to each individual on how much privacy they wish.


    The problem with the "nothing to hide" attitude is that
    eventually some things that may seem innocuous to share can be
    used to social engineer fraud or theft.

    That is why the abuse departments where created

    i talk to the police, but i've had some of their law enforcement training and i know how to play the game most of the time.

    if i committed a crime or were suspected of such a thing, however, i would not talk to the police. they can twist things around and i've seen it.

    In that case: Let's move your bed to the front room, remove the curtains, have intercourse in broad dailight in front of a passing crowd and lets get rid of toilets and just poop in a bucket in the middle of the office.

    Privacy does not mean seclusion from observation because you are doing anything wrong, it is a deeply personal right AND in a more fundemental way the only moment we can truly be ourselves.

    When people tell me that I am silly for being concerned about the government or any other group tracking everything I do and accessing my data, I ask them to allow me to go through their phone. I tell them that the government is just people, like me, and if they are comfortable with strangers rifling through the data, then surely they should be comfortable with someone they know and trust more.

    Haven't had anyone hand over their phone to me so far...

    This has to be the finest examples of privacy that I've read yet. 100% GOLD.

    It's funny how someone doesn't want one person looking through their phone or computer, or bugging their home, but they will happily allow big tech access
    to their information and monitor their every move, and have Elexa listening
    24 hours a day.

    Alexa. I got the spelling wrong.

    It's that contraption put out by Amazon so that you can voluntarily have your house bugged. The perks are that you can talk to it if you're lonely or something and have it google stuff for you if you're too lazy to type it in.

    Hahaha, I've seen many articles now about Amazon drivers bringing with them essential personal issue equipment such as an empty 2L bottle with them to work. Appalling work conditions!

    I don't know. I've heard first hand that the working conditions in the Amazon warehouses are poor. Friend of mine worked there and complained about the lack of heating and such. I think a lot of these big tech companies (Uber, Amazon etc) treat employees like cattle.y

    i worked at amazon for extra cash a few years ago. it's the same as any fulfillment job. it's not hard work. they have a lot of perks and great insurance. after 1 year you can get a college education for decent fields paid for by amazon and take classes right on campus.

    they use the same time tracking system all over the world. the exact same. everything is timed but it's not that bad. if you have to go take a shit, you're good. if you're drinking a lot of water and have to go take a piss for 5 mins every hour you're good. if you are gone for an hour THAT will get you in trouble.

    during covid they also did really high pay incentives.

    amazon's not a bad place to work with. you arent cattle but you are a worker drone. they also fucked up my first paycheck and i got over 1k for working 1 day. you get lots of paid time off plus vacation plus unpaid time off. you get an extra day of paid time off every 2-3 weeks i believe.

    the problem is that today people don't want to work. they want to sit at home and get high. all i did was scan shit and put it into a pod. anybody can do that. no heavy lifting just standing in the same area.

    Why wouldn't they? They know they can because if they lose one employee
    they can gain two. Ultimately, for them it is all about efficiency and
    cost savings and nothing more. Working for Amazon Corporate, AWS, or
    one of its subsidiaries, completely different story.
