In WSJ Op-Ed, Mark Zuckerberg Speaks Down to Users and Misses the Point | Electronic Frontier Foundation
I’m a proud supporter of the EFF.

> Zuckerberg ends his op-ed with a call for government regulation codifying the principles of "transparency, choice, and control." But in reality, Facebook is tirelessly fighting against laws that might do just that: it is actively [battling to undermine Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act](https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/12/eff-appellate-court-protect-biometric-privacy) in court, and the Internet Association, of which Facebook is a member, has asked California legislators to [weaken the California Consumer Privacy Act](https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/12/facebooks-latest-scandal-shows-we-need-stronger-privacy-laws), and is pushing for a national law [only if it "preempts" and rolls back those vital state protections](https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/09/game-rigged-congress-invites-no-consumer-privacy-advocates-its-consumer-privacy).

Follow the money.
