    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.

    Internet of Things. Thats why the new one costs more but the parts are crappier than your last decent model. The words "Woods" and "Throw" come to mind, especially IoT.

    How about quit letting Google bribe govt with Lobbyists first? If you dont get rid of the Lobbyists, then it doesnt matter if its Google or whatever follows Google.

    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...

    I only know english. Not sure if programming languages count as languages since we dont exactly talk to each other in Javascript... Personally, I refuse to learn to speak spanish because of the outright insistence that I as an American need to learn the language of an invading country. If I had any intention of going to Mexico or another spanish speaking country, then I believe I would be the one that needed to learn spanish, but when they come here, shouldnt they learn our language?

    There is nothing wrong with firefox. If it is running slow, then you have something else going on with your computer. #1 - VPN, as mentioned above, privateinternetaccess.com #2 - Ad Block the shit out of every fucking tracker. Do NOT use AdBlock Plus. It is now useless and allows ALL Google ads and tracking. Use this. #3 - Block as many ads as you can. Look for an Ad Blocking DNS Server. Advertisers seem to think that Privacy is the antithesis of Profits. #4 - Firefox #5 - Firefox Add Ons. Again, do NOT use Ad Block Plus. DO use things like NoScript and Request Policy. #6 - Firefox about:config - Look for Lockdown Mode, and tweak it so you get a balance between security and functionality #7 - Spybot Search and Destroy - Newer versions have gotten worse, but the Browser Hardening is still useful #8 - Anything Microsoft needs to go away

    That is really the scariest bit. When we communicate in ANY way that isnt directly speaking with each other in person, we sadly are dependent on either big corporations who own almost everything between us, or on govt to be involved (which I do not want) by turning companies into "public utilities". Really, the last thing I want is anyone in govt coming along and saying that since a corporation / public utility is involved, an individual either must / can not use something like water to grow free range chickens or hormone free cattle or unpasteurized dairy. And if you havent noticed, I am again partly trying to play devils advocate here...

    Yeah, it kind of is about Property Rights vs Free Speech. What I am gathering is that I dont have the right to say anything I want in your house, as well as I shouldnt if it is your house. --- In general, why not take this all the way? Since I have to use internet from Cox / Charter / Frontier / Verizon, wouldnt they also have authority to censor me also? Why not throw in the power company? How dare I use their electricity to transmit an electronic message to any website or text or blog or vid post or whatever that is in contradiction to their restricted speech policy? How about the water company too since Im drinking their water while saying things that tries to challenge the idea that corporations do not have HUMAN rights? When does this stop? Since everything we do any more is pretty much based on big corporations having control to everything, why not just say fuck it and give away all of everyones rights to the corporations, and make sure that people do not have rights any more since they apparently do not deserve them? We've exchanged our Rights for Permissions, and now most people here are okay with those Permissions being revoked by a Corporation. You dont get an Appeal with a Corporation. You dont get Rights with a Corporation. You dont get Representation in a Corporation. Corporations buy out the govt so the law is useless against the Corporations. Only the RICH who own those Corporations will have TRUE Freedom of Speech. Freedom itself is dying, replaced and subverted by contract law, and there are so many around that are giving thunderous applause. This is how Fascism comes to power. Position us against ourselves.

    You guys are looking at the stuff being censored, right? Ron Paul himself is on the chopping block. Im not saying that Ron Paul deserves to make money from the videos that conflict with advertiser interests. But when you look at what is being said, I dont think most of us here disagree with what Ron Paul has to say. I dont think what he says is controversial at all, rather Common Sense. And THAT is what is being put on the chopping block. So, lets say Google and Ron Paul do not agree. Where else is Ron Paul gonna go that will communicate his message? And perhaps youre right, perhaps it is more so Rights of a Person vs Rights of a Corporation.

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,
