"Don't be upset about Chinese spyware because American spyware exists" is the very definition of what-aboutism bullshit I swear to god.
How about I be upset about BOTH of them and try to avoid them as much as possible? And if the Chinese spyware is easier to avoid, moreso the better.
Likewise, "don't worry about compromising yourself further because you're already compromised" is just a bad mentality.
I'm probably gonna get shit for saying that. But you know what? I don't care. Spyware is a problem and yes, shit like this makes you complicit.
