Remember when Mark Zuckerberg called Facebook users ‘dumb f*cks’, and said he’s matured since then (yeaaa… riggghttt… sureee…), well now look at how well he’s matured since then.
Tiffiny from Fight for the Future writes, “New information has surfaced about Facebook’s position on S. 754, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA). Sources on the Hill tell us that Facebook lobbyists are welcoming CISA behind closed doors, even though Facebook has been lauded as opposing the bill after CCIA, an industry association they are a member of, came out against it.. CISA would give companies like Facebook legal immunity for violating privacy laws as long as they share information with the government. It’s supposed to be for cybersecurity, but in reality companies would be encouraged to share information beyond cyber threat data and the information could be used for prosecuting all kinds of activities.”
Based on this information, Fight for the Future has launched a petition demanding that Facebook come clean about its stance on CISA: https://www.youbetrayedus.org/facebook
Facebook has come under public fire for its permissive use of user data and pioneering privacy-invasive experiments in the past. They have also supported previous versions of the cybersecurity info-sharing bills, and their chief Senate lobbyist, Myriah Jordan, worked as General Counsel for CISA’s sponsor, Senator Richard Burr, immediately before moving to Facebook. Facebook has declined to take a public position on CISA, but in recent days sources have confirmed that in fact Facebook is quietly lobbying the Senate to pass it. Fight for the Future has launched a campaign to demand Facebook take a public position.
At a time when CISA is being rejected by the public, security experts, and even the tech industry it’s supposed to protect, it was suspicious that Congress is barrelling forward with this bill at breakneck speed. Now, it seems we have part of the answer. Facebook’s quiet lobbying is an example of why Facebook will go down as the most hated tech company in history. If Facebook wants to reclaim their credibility on user privacy, they need to take a stand against CISA.
Here’s The Petition To Make Facebook Come Clean:
Please spread the word and share this article. Stay safe, and God bless!
P.S. I don’t think that it is only Facebook that pushed for this, I think it is also Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, Walmart, Sprint, McDonalds, Walmart, and so many other companies that are basically trying to become our government from now on. It’s to the point where there are even ‘corporate judges’ and they want to rule and control every aspect of our lives. This is why I state that we have to check on our government, representatives, senators, presidents, mayors, governors, etc. and watch what they are doing because thesedays they are seriously doing everything that they can to harm our lives in a negative way.
I as many do not want to be watched, have my personal information in the hands of companies to do what they want with it, be persecuted for what I say online or on my blogs, and plain ole’ have my privacy be invaded whatsoever. Freedom and democracy is dying every single day, especially with this CISA bill and TPP, TTIP, TISA, The Dark Act, and so many other bills being created to destroy freedom and democracy. This is why we have to know what is really going on with our governments and find out what they are doing to try and stop them from their evil agendas before it’s been completed.
Nevertheless, as I always say, stay safe everyone, and may God bless you, and us all.
