    At the start of the video, he makes one small mistake. He referred to Targeted Advertising as "Demographics", which is now completely out of date. Its now called Psychographics, not Demographics, because the algorithms use very detailed data sources to determine a persons psychology in order to effectively manipulate the individual to buying a product or service or scam or whatever. Psychographics will examine things like Religious Preferences, Briggs Meyer Personality Tests (INTJ's and ENFP's, stuff like that), and EVERY possible source to maximize manipulation of purchase. Difference here is that Demographics target by age and gender and look at Groups, not Individuals based on Psychology. Just picking nits, but overall, he is right. Online Advertising is HYPE. The REAL danger here is when people start getting thrown in jail, interment camps, re-education centers, or whatever you want to call it for what those Psychographic Tests reveal instead of just letting them be normal ordinary good people. We arent there yet, but if you look at the strong reactions between Trump and Hittlary supporters, we are getting progressively closer every single day.

    Big problem here. SCAMS. There have been scams that have been running for years that target the elderly. If the IRS is now gonna resort to private debt collectors, how are the elderly, especially those with mental conditions such as Alzheimers supposed to tell the difference between an actual IRS debt collection and one of those fucking Indian scams that try to call my house nearly DAILY? The authorization of IRS using Debt Collectors just screwed over a shit load of gullible people by making it even harder to tell the difference between Legit and Scam. --- Yes, I do believe the IRS itself is a scam, and Taxation is Theft. However, it is very difficult even for the most enabled people to fight back against the IRS when they have the power of the US Govt behind them.

    Public Poll. Please explain your answer. Both the Federal Reserve Bank and the IRS were created by the 16th Amendment. Can we abolish one without abolishing the other? Again, please explain why.

    So I guess meeting women by actually having human interaction is now considered "inappropriate", and the ONLY govt approved method of meeting a person of the opposite sex is on Fedbook? What a load of fucking horse shit. Throw France in the woods.

    Im sure that will all improve if interest in the tech exists. This is actually one time that I find something in technology that isnt creepy or Orwellian to be used as a tool of control. So this is a moment of rarity for me that I think this is actually good. Not great, but good. The worrisome tech is the stuff that is used to suppress the Rights of the people, like the AI that may be attached to a robot with robot muscles.

    There is a big difference between using ones Freedom of Speech, and flat out BUYING Politicians. There is a big difference between an individuals free speech and corporations free speech. If you havent been paying attention, the corporations shit on us by manipulating and coercing and bribing our elected representatives. Elected. Yeah, that is kind of funny tho isnt it? The head of the FDA was already employed by Monsanto (now owned by Bayer), or has been offered a job at Monsanto once they leave their position of high power. Does that sound like corporations really have our best interests in mind? Corporations are NOT people, and being "a group of people" does not entitle them to more Rights than any one person, which is exactly what they are doing. If things were all peachy keen, then why is it that so many of our disastrous bills are flat out written by Corporate Lawyers and not even read at all by most of our representatives?

    No, what I want is a smaller govt where there is no one in power for groups of any label to influence. Restriction of Govt IS Free Speech. That includes limiting govts privilege to listen only to the groups based on label, such as "Business" and "Corporation".

    Then you end up with a Democracy, exactly what those like Jefferson, one of the first true Anti Federalists, wanted desperately to avoid at all costs. Does being a part of a group make any man "more" equal than any other man? That is exactly what is implied with Corporations and Democracy. "I am part of Group X, therefore my voice carries more weight than that individual." And Democracy is nothing more than the group with more people taking away the rights of the group with less people.

    People should have Rights, not Corporations. Google is not acting like a person. And really, Google should be adhering itself to the Constitution, not manipulating lawmakers to bypass and circumvent existing protections so it can make more money at our expense. Just my two cents.

    Agreed. And over the last several thousand years, the standard of "sexy" has changed dramatically. Being skinny with washboard abs used to be a symbol of poverty while being fat was an indicator you could afford food, but that was way back prior to at least the turn of the previous century. Today, its the rich people who can afford both the time and the money for good quality food and exercise. The roles today of "sexy" and "healthy" are the exact opposite of what they were centuries ago.

    May not have enough ad blocking stuff elsewhere on your computer too. Ads run a ton of scripts and those scripts can cause major slowdown in your browser also. As always, a very easy solution is an Ad Blocking Hosts File: MVPS Ad Blocking Hosts File winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm If you've never used it before, I guarantee you will be shocked at how much a single static file makes things on your web browsing speed up. Just restart your computer after putting it in the directory appropriate for your OS.

    I think that has to do with the quality of the food that people can afford, as well as the type of jobs. So many of our manufacturing jobs have gone overseas, and we are left with a lot less physical jobs, which I think also contributes to our overall fatness. And yes, other factors involved too, like time to exercise, motivation, etc.

    Depends on the way other browsers are configured. Too many plugins in Firefox can slow it down quite a bit. I dont have any experience with Safari tho so cant say much about browser performance. Either way, I dont trust either Safari or Chrome with ANY privacy in ANY form.

    If people are not taught that they have ANY rights, they may believe they dont have any to begin with, which is what some in power desperately want. Another major problem with not knowing anything about rights in general is that they also very well may not understand what a right is, and what its limits are. Such as many of our beliefs that there can be no such thing as a Right to Entitlement of any form because that infringes upon the equal rights of others. Without that basic concept, the idea of Entitlements grows in the minds of the mentally impoverished.

    Thats fine. Neither my country or my house. I dont really care if people can speak spanish, but when doing business in the US, what I do care is people can speak english. If I went to Russia, I think they would have just as much of a legitimate call for me to speak russian as much as possible while I was there. That is only fair, right? Same goes with spanish...

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,
