this, its not just an assumption its the truth. Our privacy died over a decade ago, the war was lost and the last 15 years have just been consolidation.I just assumed I haven't had privacy since 2004 or so.
None of those are evidence Amazon and Google devices are recording around the clock. They just indicate 1. that Googlers listen to lots of things (not that they have 24/7 recording); 2. that the US government has wide-reaching access to the data that does exist; 3. that surveillance data is shared between a host of countries. I'm well aware of XKEYSCORE and the various levels of "eyes" intelligence sharing, but that's not what we're talking about.
Let me reiterate my request more explicitly, since reading comprehension is clearly a problem for you: present evidence that Alexa or Google Assistant is recording everything non-stop. You will not provide vague claims about listening to "everything" based on anecdotes you can't possibly support (not without getting your partner in trouble, at least); you will not divert to tangential subjects like government surveillance. You will provide tangible, specific evidence of what I asked. Understood?
You see the problem? You're arguing based on half-truths, on unsupported extrapolations rather than directly relevant evidence. Yes, Amazon, Google and the NSA are more intrusive than they should be, but that doesn't mean that the worst you can imagine is automatically true. There's so far no evidence to indicate that Amazon and Google are literally recording everything within earshot, and there's plenty of evidence to suggest their recording is actually quite limited (even though it does have problems).
You are part of the problem. Maybe they aren't recording everything, but they do record things, they are a security risk on so many levels that are outside your control its insane and the EULA blocks all your legal remedies. (employee malfescense, system failure, hacks, selling data, etc). Outside of disabled needs why whould anyone with an active brain buy one of these?
If the Apple Vs Epic lawsuit has taught people anything (I doubt it) it should be that these tech juggernaughts are doing a lot more, and are more entagled, than you think.
