Professor Richard Stallman should be hosting an educational show at RT, and in the meantime, everybody should read this answer at least twice a day:

SS: We're going to be talking all the programme about whether people should be choosing between safety and privacy. But let me just go in detail…

RS: No, no, it's not a choice. Privacy is part of safety. Remember that one of the biggest dangers these days is political safety, safety, for instance, from governments that are repressive or authoritarian and cruel. And the more they know about what people are doing, the more dangerous they are. Collecting data is part of their technique for repression. And then there are the movements, you know, anti-truth movements such as you could find many governments supporting and they benefit from digital systems too. Targeting ads to people is dangerous and it's based on knowing a lot of things about people. Well, Facebook doesn't know very much about me because I've never been a Zucker.
