    I'd love for someone to prove this statement false: Cloud Security is only as safe as the moral integrity of its (human) controller. In other words, do I want Jeff Bezos in charge of my stuff or someone more trustworthy?

    Remember, Bezos doesn't have to look at my stuff or even control it directly. He can simply mine it for useful information through subordinates and algorithms. If he decides it's to his advantage to turn all this over to a current version of Hitler or some other entity, we can't do anything about it, and probably wouldn't know anything about it.

    Yes, please tear this reasoning apart if you would. Because I don't see much long term security in the cloud.
