"Amazon wanting my number, even though the 'government' isn’t even requiring it, is pretty darn trivial in the big picture. But it's one of a thousand ways in which the surveillance-and-control society inches forward. And you can bet that whatever records any company that big keeps, the feds can snoop into it whenever they want, with or without a warrant, and with or without the knowledge of the company. 'Hey, we just want to know, and keep track of ONE tiny little extra tidbit of information about you. What’s the problem?' The problem is that all of those tiny little tidbits add up to everything."
