I found this very interesting, although it could possibly be a ploy to convince the masses that their favorite superheros are "protecting" them. What do you think?





Eight of the world’s largest tech companies, including Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Apple, have joined forces to launch the Reform Government Surveillance website and open letter. The website specifically calls out the US government, and governments worldwide, for their over-reaching and highly opaque information gathering activities. The open letter asks the US government to lead worldwide efforts to “ensure that government surveillance efforts are clearly restricted by law, proportionate to the risks, transparent and subject to independent oversight.”

There was a thread about this earlier today, here.

I think it's a ploy to save face in the aftermath of the Snowden fall-out. All of these companies have a history of sharing data and otherwise cooperating with federal law enforcement agencies even in the absence of a court order compelling them to do so.

LOLOLOLOLOL.

As though THEY are NOT in cahoots with the globalists doing the same things. What a farce.

Clever PR campaign though.

Sigh.
