Re: What does online privacy mean to you?

Online privacy means that I can post and talk to my friends and just enjoy myself. Where I do not have to be so afraid of saying something wrong or doing something wrong. The thing is I say the same thing my father says is that I am doing nothing wrong. Then on that premise I have nothing to hide. If you read up on the United States Justice System where I live it is estimated that they convict innoncent people many times. Is any justice system perfect no. I did how ever watch a documentary on group of men who spent 18 to 34 years in jail for crimes they never commited. The were proven innocent by DNA testing.

 

Where am I going with this? The simple fact is that the law runs out of control and loses all checks and balances at times. If the electronic surviliance is this bad then someone is going to start using it doe something? Google's motto is do not be evil but what the heck are they doing with all that data anyway?

 

The horrible thing is right where I live right now we have had a serial killer lose for a couple of years now. Yet the US Government has spent billions to take a picture of my license plate and document all the porn I watch but AFTER ALL THAT MONEY. You can not get this guy or girl and find them? When you have satellites that can take license plates or my hair color etc. What is the real point of all this. This person has killed I think six women. What are they going to do wait till they kill more?

 

We have to  break away from these services and minimize the impace they have on our lives. Then again that is like trying to thumbwrestle Godzilla if he was real in order to stop him. I am sorry guys I know I went off the beaten path but if our privacy is taken away and I am going to live in a police state. Then you better **bleep** well protect the people using the technology on the criminals that they USE ALL THE TIME ONE US!

@AniaC 

thanks again for the nice intention. Sorry to bother you but there doesn't seem to exist a windows freedome app as I am redirected to a beta testing application form... what's wrong on my side ?

So nothing wrong on your side:)

 

Merry Christmas to all our community members.
