Today in “Why is Eric Schmidt Allowed to Speak in Public?”

As quoted by Amanda Holpuch of the Guardian:

“There’s been spying for years, there’s been surveillance for years, and so forth, I’m not going to pass judgement on that, it’s the nature of our society,” he said.

There’s been other rights abuses for years, too, but that doesn’t make it okay.

At any rate, do you trust this guy with an opinion on spying?

“If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place”


“We know where you are. We know where you’ve been. We can more or less know what you’re thinking about.”
