Who feels like they “have no choice” but to use websites and technology from organizations they do not trust?

I think that FOMO has it's counterpart here on privacy minded circles, but instead of feeling left out we tend to shame other people for their software choices.

We're sometimes like vegans shaming vegetarians for not being ethical enough consumers.

But we must face that there is no ethical production or consumption under our current economical circumstances. We should not shame consumers, but demand producers to produce less unethically.

@theprivacyfoundation This means, in software and privacy at least, that users are not to blame for their data and privacy being compromised. It's the fault of big corporations and governments for extracting our data and violating our privacy.

We ought not engage in conflict with other users, because were part of the same team. User consciousness means realizing fighting each other will solve nothing.
