Unions are most definitely not a democratic control over the workplace. Hell, one of the biggest battles for unions is getting the company to listen to them

But yeah, my point was about the US not being a democracy because of that. At least we can agree on that, which was what the original comment was trying to say

I think you missed the part in the comment I responded to where the person claimed the US wasn’t a democracy because we don’t have democratic control over our workplace. You quite literally missed the whole point they were making, and yet you still defended it

Here’s a thought: I don’t really care. I know some people do, but the whole idea of “you’re being spied on!!!” is so ridiculous

Unless you’ve done something illegal, the government doesn’t want to spy on you. Unless you’ve angered some international crime syndicate, black hat hackers don’t want to listen to you
