I agree a decentralized internet is needed, but many people don't like paying for things anymore or don't have an extra buck to send an individual email.  The other reality is companies like at&t and Comcast collect just as much data and are forgotten, ignored or thought to be the cost of living. 

Skynet and 1984 and big brother has been freely given away and created and we didn't care.
