Just because unpaid internships are common, does not mean it's okay for a company to take advantage of whatever interns are working under them.
One of the things that bugs me about the court case is the fact that the unpaid interns "displaced regular employees and received no benefit from the internship beyond what they would have received had they been classified as employees..." and there was also no educational benefit found in what they were doing for Fox.
I might need some more details but this is from Leaseweb's TOS:
25.2 Upon expiration or termination of the Agreement:
25.2.1 LeaseWeb shall cease to provide all Services; 25.2.2 LeaseWeb shall be entitled to erase and delete any and all data of Customer -and any
and all data of Customer’s End Users- from LeaseWeb’s Infrastructure, including from
the Dedicated Infrastructure;"
That mentality has always bothered me. You see it so often in the movie industry where they'll focus so much of the financials on the visual aspects like the CGI or the actors, and then expect a huge return.
People can smell that shit, and they don't like being tossed a sugar-frosted piece of poo.

"making everyone happy all of the time, that is impossible, they do serve the interests of the people, they just do not serve the interest of the PERSON."
Yes it is, but you're assuming that is what people want.
I agree, politicians are not there to support the interest of one person, but you're forgetting there are plenty of politicians who are only looking out for themselves and their interests instead of the people they represent.
"What if you don't have the same interests as the person who lives next door to you, who out of you two gets to have their interest served and who does not, who decides that ?"
Then I would start a special interest group of people with like minded values and we'd fund politicians to voice our interests. I'm not supportive of a singular voice of concern, but when you have a poll of multiple people displaying concern, you can't write it off as people expecting too much from politicians who are put into office to represent them.
"If you all have THE SAME interests (impossible) then it would be possible to serve YOUR interests, but if (like in the real world) there are as many 'interests" as there are people, that could change from day to day, how do you expect them all to be 'served'??"
According to your logic then, if a number of people voice their concern over say having clean drinking water, then they're being unrealistic?
"It's also very egotistic and self-serving, you are saying if you do not get exactly what you want you get upset, and shows you have no care for what other people want, and no willingness to reach a fair compromise where (like the real world) you get some things you like and accept some things you don't. Because when you don't like is probably the thing someone else does like, and when you do like is probably what someone else (or many else) don't like.
Really? is this how you justify what the NSA is doing? So it's egotistical for the public to be concerned about their privacy from the government?
And no, I don't get it because your logic matches your asinine analogies.
