A total, complete, privacy nightmare

Postby dedanna1029 » 25 Apr 2018, 23:03

I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.

Yup, too much power under the few.


The internet should be an anarchy with the good and evil all mixed up. However, the powers at be, wants to control it to keep you safe. Me, no thanks, I can take care of my own.

MoFos like that are the one bringing Net Neutrality that had nothing to do on been neutral and was about control. It was/is the crowbar for the Gov Co to control the web after the failed SOPA, CISPA, APIPA. Give, them an Inch and they take a Parsec.

I’m not sure what’s worse: having such a powerful surveillance tool exclusively available to government agencies and big corporations or having it available to any friends, neighbors, or internet creeps who want to see what I’m doing. The latter would be worse in some ways, though at least the surveillance wouldn’t be secret, and everybody would quickly come to learn how exposed they are so they could adjust their behavior.
