His work is solid and well sourced, learned a lot from his "Peace Revolution" podcast and haven't made it through half of the episodes.

As far as what we can do about it...it's a "trying to get the toothpaste back in the tube" scenario now. Any type of surveillance shouldn't be there in the first place. But, as long as the population continues to use apps and agree to location enabling, it may be beyond fixing. Making rules after the fact will exclude some person or entity, and with so much collusion between lawmakers and corporations I think privacy will now always be exploited. Stop using smartphones is all I've got at the moment.
On a tangent, I strongly feel "we the people" need to watch what congress is doing more closely. Proposed laws and resolutions are posted, and while some are lengthy maybe it's worth the time to read and interpret them for ourselves instead of relying on media to do it for us. Forming a group to do this may work, as no one has the time to read everything.

This bill was introduced 1/3/19, passed the house 1/10/19. Still has to pass the senate.
But, really? A bill to protect diplomats from surveillance through devices, but no legislation to protect citizens from big brother (at least I couldn't find any, please post if it exists). Congress sucks.

I always got the feeling he wasn't trying to sell "the truth," he was pushing people to question, which is the very essence of science. True science won't stop and accept an absolute certainty, because it always is questioning itself.
And yes, he was a TV personality and while one shouldn't buy what tv is selling, I just never felt that he was disingenuous. But I could be wrong.

TIL Sagan gets a lot of hate.
