For many of us who care about protecting democratic values from the abuses of identity politics, misinformation and fake news, the slow demise of Facebook just can't come fast enough. This pernicious company - under the helpful eye of many dubious security services - has been at it again, selling private information to organisations and corporations who will use it for their own nefarious purposes.
