Dear W∴ Balboos, GHB,

Profound or Profane?
Where is the line between Social engineering and covert manipulation?
perhaps it is similar to the difference between a symbiotic and parasitic relationship. But from what perspective is the line drawn? Who decides when the relationship between the target and the perpetrator is equitable or abusive?
I do not like being manipulated... rather I would like to be informed and give my consent to be guided... see?
Informed consent and digital ethics?
thanks for reading and sharing
blessings
