Here’s the “Privacy First” pitch: whatever is going on with all of the problems of the internet, all of these problems are made worse by commercial surveillance.

If something like this were implemented in US federal law, what could the downsides be? Like California Proposition 65, the “cookie law” didn’t stop tracking, it just made more pop ups. Would this do the same thing?

      “Only those who do not seek power are qualified to hold it.”

      “In most cases, those who want power probably shouldn’t have it, those who enjoy it probably do so for the wrong reasons, and those who want most to hold on to it don’t understand that it’s only temporary.”

      Good call-outs! I feel like this sort of legislature would also appeal to both sides of the aisle.
