Stallman is wrong when assuming that the authorities do not need a search warrant to access your online data, and, at the opposite, he forgets to mention that the company running the cloud (Google in the present case), doesn't need anything to deny you access to your own data if they want to, no matter the reason.

Stallman breaks through an open door... but, as usual, insults everyone that does not do exactly what he thinks people should do ::)

He also sounds like someone who has a personal dislike and distrust of anything Google
and wants to make sure all of us know it and should share his belief.  :(

it's worse than that Bob, Stallman hates everything that's not free and OpenSource, so this started already with Apple, Microsoft, IBM etc... in the 80's and 90's... he's considered a sort of guru by the whole OSS/Linux community...I consider him a sort of fascist. Not mentioning that he's not really good at arguing about anything: his basis belief for instance is that a piece of software code, any software code, should be universally shared like a kitchen recipe...  8)
