I think the bigger point in the article is that most people including .org holders don't even know the sale is happening.

Most people don't care if they will be slaves or not.

Most people don't care about anything. So what? Let's burn this planet to ashes?

Democracy can work only with people that do care.

Most people don't understand what it is or what it means. I refrain from voting when I'm uninformed. I rarely vote for city elections and some random state positions because I don't have time to research the options. That doesn't mean that I or most people don't care about the results, we just don't have the time to learn enough about everything to have a rational opinion on everything.

That's why representative democracies are better than strict democracies. I may not be an expert on everything, but I can usually recognize an expert when I see one.

Most people don’t care that Goldman Sach is behind the financing of .org takeover.

That doesn't seem relevant. Banks bankroll all sorts of things, but that doesn't mean the agree with them, it just means the financial details like advantageous for them. I'm more concerned about the motivations of the buyer and seller than the financier.
