The seemingly almighty corporations¶

I read a comment Legal, illegal, ganz egal in German newspaper Mitteldeutsche Zeitung. It speaks about the work of Austrian privacy advocate Max Schrems and his successful work to protect us against the Safe Habour and Privacy Shield regulations. And it speaks about how these noble ideas remain useless because even our politicians and public administrations happily use the digital infrastructure provided by greedy giants.
Oh my God. So many people, even those who see the danger, seem to believe that there is nothing we can do about it, that “they” are simply too powerful. And actually it is so simple: we just need to tackle the disease at its roots instead of applying symptom remedies. We just need to realize that greedy giants are nothing but ideas, ghosts that exists only within our own law systems. We just need to review some basic laws that pull out their plug, and their seemingly omnipotent power will vanish. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident. (Psalm 27)
