Define Hypocrisy


I wrote and published an article in French, where I resume a really bad experience with Radio France, its Web-Sites and a completely futile attempt to get comments from
While they frequently bash the GAFAM, they make heavy use of any profiling service under the sky, store their broadcasts on the Amazon-Cloud and do not let you listen to anything “online”, while you block any of the 20 to 25 connections to external sites that are manily furnishing JavaScript.

The CNIL (the agency) has a slogan: « Protéger les données personnelles, accompagner l'innovation, préserver les libertés individuelles » -
Protect personal data, accompany innovation, preserve personal liberties”.
Alerted, they declare themselves incompetent in the matter.

The ministry of Communications and Culture (or vv.) only states that they are not competent to give me a response, then refer me back to the “moderator” of Radio France, who ignores me for about 6 months and despite my repeated attempts to get a comment from the company.

Next stop is the « Canard Enchaîné ». This newspaper is difficult to explain. It is a powerful, satirical publication which conveys a lot of truth. Oftentimes they had been the very first media to talk at all about topics which shook the country for long weeks after. For the time they only confirmed receipt of my message. Talking to the Canard Enchîné is already considered an act of violence by some and I do not know what else I could try now.

Right. Reported...
It is probably, because I was not supposed to go there, that I went.

Fat Sorry.

I am not totally sure what this is all about, my french being virtually non-existent.
But it seems to touch on issues of personal data protection; as a general recommend, you should check out https://www.kuketz-blog.de/ and the accompanying forum, there you will find many resources, maybe even serious advice, or other blogs/newspapers where you can publish your complaints.

This is not really an article that puts questions.

I am more in the mood to bluntly point my finger at the hypocrisy exposed by state authorities, including the ministries and so called public services. All endeavor to “sweap one's own hallway first” and to not throw stones while living in a glass house appear to cause laughter, at most. I am done with that and just start kicking. One at a time...

I am of the opinion that much of contemporary hipocrisy isn't really it, but simply the willful and intentional exploitation of liberties, rights and venues people are giving two faced people without any repercussions.

To someone raptorial who will, in your face, tell you that something you do is bad, but then does it himself (because it's not actually bad) is not a hypocrite in my eyes, but usually someone who knows they can get away with it even if people thought it was hypocritical.
In these cases I see it more like gleeful flaunting and revelling in evil, not hypocrisy, which can be quite benign. There's plenty of people who know they're behaving badly in some way but then tell others not to do it that way. That is hypocrisy, but it's kind of benign, the aforementioned version of it, yeah. I don't put it in that category anymore.

It's just exploiting a venue that they have, but shouldn't. At least not scott free.

Believe me; the belated reaction is due to my ongoing reflection of this remarkable post. I am currently unable to produce anything like a “response”, I am still struggling. The best that I can say is that you probably “nailed that one”.
