    How do you prove that you do have something to hide when a moronic majority blindly believes that having something to hide is somehow criminal? How do you prove that damage has been done to a person when their privacy has been truly invaded?

    https://yro.slashdot.org/story/16/05/25/1457246/facebook-could-be-eavesdropping-on-your-phone-calls I am sure everyone has heard me say the same thing over and over again. So, I want to pose a question for everyone. For the average person, how do you prove that damage has been done when a persons privacy is violated?

    You just +repped me for a comment I made about "What is Right" and "What is Easy". I believe the choice there applies to this situation as well. It is always easy to give up ones Rights in exchange for empty promises of govt "taking care of you". Problem with that choice is it is only easy in the short term.

    You are exceptionally correct, so correct that I think things need to be spelled out for all those people who do not think for themselves? So why dont we all make a list? What could go wrong with Only Digital Currency? - What happens if the power goes out? - What happens if a Bank is Hacked? - What happens when your neighbor can see a list of everything you buy? - What happens when your enemies can see a list of everything you buy? - What happens when your Employer can see a list of evertthing you buy? - What happens when your Insurance Company can see a list of evertthing you buy? - What happens when your government can see a list of evertthing you buy?

    This is an obvious example of the difference between What is Right, and What is Easy. Lets face it, learning a new language is quite hard. The choice of many (not all) non english speakers to do two things, to do the right thing, which is to learn the language of the community in which they live, and yes, that is quite hard, but also most feel the right thing to do, or, their alternative is to do the easy thing, which is to demand everyone else learn their language. Sadly, these same values are passed on to many generations of kids that grow up that also make the choice of what is easy, which is to not learn english. It is always easier to demand someone else take responsibility for your own actions, which here, means to try to force someone else to learn your language rather than learn a new language yourself. Much of this depends greatly on where a person lives. I remember a quote that said something to the effect of "we are citizens of our native tongue". If I moved to Russia, people in Russia would expect I learn to speak Russian. If I moved to Portugal, people there would expect me to learn to speak Portuguese. Likewise, a Russian or Brazillian or Equadorian moves here, we expect them to learn to speak english. I think that is only fair because there are two major perspectives conflicting with each other: the perspective of the Individual, and the perspective of the collective Society. These two perspectives are not in sync. What I think many people feel is happening is that we get single individuals demanding an entire society learn to speak their language instead of the individual changing themselves to become a part of that society. One person learn english or fifty thousand learn to speak spanish. Eventually those numbers shift and one becomes ten, ten becomes a hundred, hundred becomes a thousand. We end up with a total conflict between two societies, one of which having grown by expecting their host to adapt to their demands and displace their native citizenry by claiming things like "Microaggression" or other utter nonsense such as the display of the national flag of your host country as "Racist". The true responsibility of any society is to protect the value of its individuals. With that having been said, the expectations of immigrants to adapt their entire societies to satisfy the easy demands of individual immigrants to change their entire language to suit them is the result of a failure of that society to protect its individuals. Its nothing more than a conflict of personal psychology vs group psychology. The easy choice for an individual is the hard choice for the society, which in this case appears to be in direct conflict with the hard choice of an individual being the easy choice for society. It is easy for a society to take from the individual and expect they always fend for themselves, yet, provide no support to the individual when they are challenged by things that are beyond their ability to control. Not everyone was "lucky" enough to be born in a country they want to be born in. I cant hold the individuals responsible for things that are beyond any measure of their control, such as being born of any skin color, gender, nationality, who their parents are, etc. I do charge each of those individuals with adopting the group values when they do have an ability to learn a foreign language, despite it being hard. I didnt move to their country and demand they all learn to speak my language, but it is somehow okay for them to do that to us? If they want to be "American", then come here to be "Americans", not Immigrants in America. Are you hispanic? Beyond your control, but learning english is within your power. Be an "American" if you want to live in America. Otherwise, youre just a tourist. The willingness of the individual to support the society and the group values such as language in which they live is what strengthens that community. Continuing efforts to undermine...

    If you call having a gun pointed at your head voluntary.. (both figurative and literal) Truth is they fund themselves by printing money. If our tax dollars were truly necessary to keep govt going, they would have collapsed a long time ago. Digging a bit deeper, we can only find that those who control the issue of currency are the real masters of the govt, govt is nothing more than the thug arm of the money printers. When the real wealth of the country was in the hands of the people who create goods and perform services, the taxes that those people were paid offered the people a measure of control over the govt. If govt strayed too far from what the people wanted, refusal to pay taxes worked well as a means of control without direct physical violence. It also provided an incentive for govt to have a prosperous population. Today, since govt funding comes from printers of money and not the people, the govt answers to them, not the people. Govt has always and will always protect the issuers of their money. As a result, when we expect a measure of recourse against grievances for their actions, govt will protect the banks, hedge fund managers, and money manipulators at the expense of the population. What we end up with is Fast Food both in jobs and what we eat, and Hedge Funds. This is why corruption has taken over our govt. To control a population, there are three foundational monopolies that are mandatory:

    Typical. This is exactly why we have a constitutionally protected right to not self incriminate. Guilty until proven innocent. Well, more like guilty until proven guilty, thus, no courts required. The ability to defend ones data against all who desire it is in absolutely no way a crime, which reveals those who have true criminal intent. Now if the FBI had half a collective brain, instead of going after this guy, they should be trying to find out who they are not allowed to investigate, and hint, its not the people, but their own damn bosses and the ones that sign their paychecks.

    What ever the dollar is replaced with, odds are it will be pure digital. There several monetary battles going on right now. There is a war on cash, anonymity, and the value of many currencies. The US dollar only has some value due to being backed by oil, IE, the Petrol Dollar. But the rest of the world, except for most Americans, knows damn good and well this is a scam. I would place a few not too favorable bets on things like BRICs form of currency taking over, and that might happen around our next economic crash, which doesnt seem very far off.

    Ditto. One big problem is there are simply not enough good paying jobs to go around. People get stuck having to work until they die because the jobs that are available to them do not pay well enough to afford any form of retirement as an opportunity. It may be possible to employ everyone right now, but they would all have to be minimum wage jobs. Alternatively, we could have good paying jobs, but then a lot of people would have no job at all. The result is at 65, (or 69 or 74 or whatever age is the new "retirement age"), a person may not have a job, thus, there is no job to retire from. If they do have a job, they cant afford to leave that job. I remember back during the last Crash there was a proposal to lower the retirement age from 65 to 55 (or there about) to "create" jobs for the young. Just like "wealth distribution", it would not have actually created anything. More like "job redistribution", another form of "wealth distribution". The real solution would be to get govt out of retirement and allow people to open their own businesses. But we know how that goes. Collect rainwater = go to jail. New mom and pop businesses are strangled out of existence due to govt interference. Lemonade Stand = go to jail. Existing businesses and protectionism make opening a new business so hard that we now have fewer businesses created than are closing every year. This is offset by the size of the mega corporations who employ a greater percentage of the population, and even that isnt so great since they want to pay jack shit, and jack left town. Layoffs are coming back as strong as they were in 2008, and every time a person gets laid off, they get kicked right back to the bottom of the ladder. Over the course of a persons lifetime, many end their careers at the bottom of the ladder because people are disposable to Corporations. As always, Corporations blame their victims. The very notion of retirement in the next 20 years may very well be dead.

What we are ending up with is the merger between the biological component and a Technological Corporate Leash.

Is a Future Revolution Possible Without Privacy?

by DamianTV on 03-11-2013 at 02:16 PM
(This was a post that I slightly edited to make sense by itself. The original post is here.)

Very few people are looking toward the Future when Privacy is Impossible. But if Privacy is completely gone, will a Revolution even be possible?

Google GlASS might be able to record what you do right now as a video, but this will only be the first in a long series of progressively privacy invading advancements. One of them inevitably will be Google Contact Lenses. However,
