And your final sentence is just as patently wrong. The reality of how much control or rule each person has is very multi-faceted. Even amongst the outright slaves of history, the masters with their whips and crucifixes (or lynch ropes or whatever) still did not 'rule absolutely'.
I mean, I love the animosity of your comment. And your point is a good one. But it's made in such a way as to make me think you are an NSA agent doing the classic thing of arguing the correct but undesired point with an added twist of over-the-top psychoticness... oh wait, that's my schtick... :)
But seriously, the huffingtonpost and your sentiment are on the money. Of course as I get older I tend to imagine that it's just the particulars of the technology that are changing, and that the general Kompromat principle has been ruling society since long before I was born.
