Hah, fooled you, this post doesn't have anything to do with unions, unless you think of the borg as a union in a non right to work state. Which I didn't think of till after I typed that so this post is full of surprises, mostly for me.
I don't have very many strong beliefs anymore, but I do think that Facebook is pretty evil. Much worse than say, the borg, because I can totally understand how they happened: who wouldn't want their tech devices implanted, and then who would be surprised when one thing led to another? Oh my gosh, as I typed this, I just realized that the "another" (being a total mind meld and the loss of privacy) in the last sentence was the logical outcome of Facebook's over-sharing and misuse of people's data. So, yeah, the borg are what would happen if Facebook, Google and Microsoft merged to distribute Apple products. All of which is a long way to go to mention that I'll be closing my What'sApp account (if that's even possible) now that they have been assimilated into the Facebook collective.
