Yet some are focused on getting TikTok banned, while they let their nice government have all the data and jurisdiction on them.

Because America’s government is slightly less corrupt than China’s

Objectively one of the most false statements about any government worldwide.

What does that have to do with what I said?

CIA kills and drone bombs people globally based on metadata collected via smartphones and internet devices people use. Apparently, US military uses Google AI and NSA data troves for this purpose. This is what I gave you the link for.

Does China government do these kinds of things to people anywhere, for all the spying allegations they face from CFR media?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_surveillance_in_China I mean the Chinese government is persecuting any citizens in the country who dare to speak out against them using the mass surveillance they have. As I always say, I hate both the Chinese government and the corrupt west, but I’d much rather live in the west where we have at least some semblance of democracy and freedom

You can live in shitty West where you have a fake semblance of freedom with anti maskers and anti vaxxers, and where Muslims and blacks are openly discriminated against.

I recently finished the book bad blood, about the theranos saga. They also had a general, James Mattis on their board of directors. Not to mention close ties with Henry Kissinger and the Obama administration.

Anyone else think “Theranos” sounds kind of like Thanos?

I recommend Surveillance Valley by Yasha Levine, it shows that the connections between US tech companies and the US military has been going on since the beginning of the internet.

I do not know if you know, but do give a read into the Swiss Policy Research resource website. They study the biases and connections of Western media and politicians, among other things.

There is also a Media Navigator chart they have, that shows the ideology and power dynamic tilt of media houses. https://swprs.org/media-navigator/

I rarely buy stuff from Amazon, like once in 2-3 years. I am unable to understand how and why people are so reliant on these services.

We need to get away from American proprietary technology as a whole as much as possible. And we can still do it before it gets too late.

Getting off AWS (as in client based usage via websites) is definitely near impossible due to how things work However you can definitely minimise or nullify usage of Amazon services by yourself if you want to.

If you value convenience too much, it cannot be helped. I do not support these evil USA megacorps, so I make a great effort to keep away from these filthy organisations.

Very accurate. Materialistic sedentary society is the root of many problems.
