Without some form of restraint, the powers of modern data empires will undoubtedly come to outweigh the power of any nation-state.

1. No regulation is put in place, and companies continue functioning as they have been.

2. Regulation is determined by those who don’t fully understand what’s going on.

It is about helping the population understand the situation well enough that they can feel safe about their future, and the future of their children.

3. We accept that regulation is necessary, get involved in our communities, and discuss the options.
