    At its heart this is what is behind the growing wealth gap in America. Really, you ask?

    Facebook, WalMart, Google etc use your online information which they "steal" for free. They use this to better target you as a source of profits (to sell you stuff, or sell your info so others can better sell you stuff). They are able to manipulate you better than Pavlov could ever manipulate his dogs, because they know everything about you.

    They know more about you than you know about yourself, because to them this is a game (business) that they play to win, and because it is a game they know how to cheat. You the poor grunt are generally unaware of what is being done - except that you are always living paycheck to paycheck, if you are lucky..

    It is an unfair fight. They have the resources, the research, the AI geniuses ... and you have ... well. next to nothing to fight back with, and that thing you once had, privacy, now does not even belong to you any more.

    This will not end well.

    There's room at the top they're telling you still But first you must learn how to smile as you kill If you want to be like the folks on the hill
