and the illusion of control. people like to have the illusion of control.

for example, people wanted to be able to choose for themselves which posters posts were visible and which posters were effectively blocked from their vision.

people wanted to have the appearance of choice when it came to re-writing their content, too. deleting past posts. re-writing past posts.

in new zealand we have blurred things so that the government has people believe they have the right to *ask* for this and that (e.g., to opt off of their data being accessible on a system or to opt out of this or that observational study on how people respond to being kept in inhumane conditions) but no appreciation that it is one thing to *ask* and another thing to *get what it is that you have asked for*.

our government has employed people to work under the rubric of human rights and the human rights commission. they are employed to basically tell people they have no human rights -- we have the bill of rights which is solely about discrimination against groups of people and you have to establish that discrimination has occurred on balance of probability before the courts.

that is 'bait and switch'.

if our Prime Minister is being held in an off-shore detention facility for his crimes as Chief of a large Pacific Island then his rights may or may not be being violated with such things as torture and the like. This is quite independent of whether or not the people responsible for his come uppance are equal opportunity abusers or not.


I trust Bob more than I trust Facebook.

But, you know, people...
