To paraphrase:

The privacy risks were too great. Google was unwilling to meet the requirements of the Dutch government to protect the privacy of the users. So no G-Suite or Google Cloud for them.

Seems fair to me.

There is no (known to me) compulsion for anyone to use Google nor for Google to provide anything to everyone.

Our beloved leader (in the UK) is going to propose "Covid Passports", a Chinese-like control of the population surreptitiously under the guise of "using every tool in the toolbox to restore the economy". There will be a electronic ID, very much like the Chinese system. Long live our glorious leader!

This shouldn't be too surprising. Long before modern social media existed, people were going on national TV and telling millions of total strangers things about their friends, their personal lives, and their families that people used to not want their neighbors to know about...

Long before the invention of radio and television, people were writing autobiographies.
