I think we should educate teachers and general public about dangers of surveillance capitalism where you pay with your data, privacy and even at the cost of losing our political agency to big companies. #Google is providing 'Free of Cost' only because they know to make money out of people's data and has a monopoly in online ads. Would you join me?
I think it is short sightedness and lack of deep understanding and conviction. I think of it like the story of Abhimanyu in Mahabharata who only heard about breaking the Chakravuha but not could not figure out coming out of it by himself. So some people heard about Free Software on their own computers but can't connect when they only use the software run by others. This is also harder problem than before. Free of cost played a bigger role than freedom earlier.
