How to: #Privacy #Squeezeout

1) Introduce privacy-eroding business model

2) Start ensnaring people
(promise it "makes your life easier")

3) Counter any objections with "but it's not mandatory"

4) If public opinion fails to comply, use marketing until new practice seems "modern".

5) Start enforcing new norm by fait accompli + social pressure

(e.g. only serve customers with non-free app)

6) When law starts to catch up, use regulatory capture.

Success! Dissent will now look "old-fashioned".
