Why use such black and white thinking? The responsibility lies with the corporations and anyone who enables them. Please spare me the inane libertarian talking points where corporations aren't responsible for any actions they do.
Corporations shrugging responsibility. It's old, it's tired and it's wrong. It's one of many core things that have fucked up the USA.

Nope. The question still stands. Once again, why would I want to share my business secrets with corporations that have been proven to enable governmental and quasi-governmental entities to spy on average Americans and businesses?

This mess is either confirming our business decisions or at least making us re-think them in regards to trusting American corporations with our data.
And, it's what they deserve.
