If letting your “insurance” company spy on your whereabouts and driving habits so you can save a few bucks—gosh, if that seems like a good trade-off to you, chances are you aren’t bothered by the Orwellian slant to Progressive’s latest ad.
Sure, medical insurers do the same thing, but that doesn’t make it right. How fast can we slide into Big Brother Hell?
At least we still have a choice NOT to buy Progressive Insurance. Laugh at cute Flo, and her bright red lipstick for now if you want. As for me, she can take that snapshot and shove it ——–up someone else’s dashboard. Not mine, though, not mine.
