[...]We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

Das halte ich davon.

heise online: "Bericht: Schufa will Daten in sozialen Netzwerken nutzen"
Die Schufa will soziale Netzwerke als Datenquelle zur Beurteilung der Kreditwürdigkeit nutzen. Wie das Radioprogramm NDR Info berichtet, lässt die Auskunftei dafür am Hasso-Plattner-Institut der Universität Potsdam (HPI) Projektvorschläge entwickeln. Herangezogen werden könnten die Kontakte von Facebook-Mitgliedern, um Zusammenhänge mit der Kreditwürdigkeit der Verbraucher zu finden. Texte könnten analysiert werden, um "ein aktuelles Meinungsbild zu einer Person zu ermitteln". Untersucht werden könnte auch, wie die Schufa über eigene Facebook-Profile oder Twitter-Accounts verdeckt an "Adressen und insbesondere Adressänderungen" anderer Nutzer gelangen kann. Ebenso werde überlegt, Personen öffentlichen Interesses, Verbraucherschützer und Journalisten automatisch zu identifizieren.
