How can I prove that a Palantir system is being used in my area by the government? This system invades citizen's privacy?
Your cellphone and laptop invade your privacy. Your Facebook page and Twitter entries invade your privacy. Emails and messages are monitored 24/7.
since it is almost certainly being used by big business, what difference would this make? to find out, you'll likely have to pore over detailed budget documents and procurement orders
Maybe it's just me
LOL. let's say your rant has something to it. Who are you going to prove it to if its the government doing this heinous activity? You would be in deep trouble if you had a clue, but luckily you don't. It is the private companies you deal with that are invading your privacy, no question, no Maybe.
We go to Sunday breakfast at the same place every week and just like clockwork Google pops up and asks how we liked it, by name. These are not difficult concepts.
The first step would be LEARNING what a Palantir system is. Come back in a few years when you have a clue on that point.
