Well, hopefully it will inspire people to realize how much personal information they're giving out to these companies in the first place. And hopefully these companies lobby the government for law amendments to protect the info of the citizens.

But to believe that this will escalate into fascist governments with totalitarian rule is patently absurd.

It takes very little intelligence to read something and believe it.
It takes more intelligence to read something, reasonably debate it, and focus on solutions, instead of screaming bloody murder.

It's a video game toy, for christ's sake. Sometimes the only thing separating a lone schizophenic from an activist is sheer numbers.
