​For centuries the most powerful intelligence gathering service on the planet was the Catholic rite of ‘confession’, where millions of people told vital info to the Pope on guilty acts which could then be used to blackmail them and their co-sinners.

There need to spy comes from a lot of things and one of them is that one person can make a difference and they are looking for that person ,and of course anyone stupid enough they have enough security on their machine to organise anti government stuff , you have to take it for granted that the man has a hook into your machine ,some people dont use the computer to communicate or the phones when they are doing things in another life ,as there are other ways to communicate with out the lookers, and more and more people are taking these up
For their off the radar communications !

This is my third machine i also got through another 2 hard drives , this machine was fired up without the net being turned on ,then every permission was turned off unless i needed it and then its turned off again ,history is deleted from the begining of time every time i go off a site ,McAfee has been taken out and the camera and the microphone holes taped up plus other actions , because i cant trust any site not to sell my information, and or those w.h.o.r.e.s of the intelligence world GCHQ +NSA record everything and profile on that !

When the net was first designed for a military application what else did people think was going to happen ?

I dare say the sacrament of confession was also one of the greatest liberations from the bondage of hypocrisy and self-deception. So, as your site requires, I sign on with social media to commentate on your denunciation of the bondage of social media.

Than ks to RT, definitely a great way to get an alternative view of the news from the usual trash here in the west. With all due respect though, I will continue to be skeptical, though I benefit from new sources of information.

Too many ambitions: one hand gives, the other hand takes...

Net: fear, paranoia, surrender, disgusts...

Solution: ditch the fears, more face time & less FaceBook, sneaky use of both your weakness & strengths...

We are not powerless. Once we accept our challenges/responsib ility to care for our future, we become powerful!

Excellent text as always by Tony Gosling. The West has become a sad case of total callousness. It's a scary World!

The Internet is totally compromised. Years ago I developed servers that used a type of unbreakable encryption - MIBs showed up and told us we can't do that. And yeah, unbreakable encryption is possible and rather easy to do.
