@coffee exactly. It’s not necessarily me I’m worried about. It’s my children, and the surveillance society they’re growing into which is being normalised.

@coffee I’m also aware I was being subtly mocked for my stance on WhatsApp/Viber/fbmessenger which they use.

@coffee

I often get comments about the type of hat I wear lol.

It seems that the "sheeple"/"normies" miss the lessons of history about the exploitation and abuse of consensus data not necessarily by the current seat of power but by one that follows.

I think it is a given that our current communal reliance on data hungry private organisations that offer access to faux social advertising platforms will be taken advantage of in a similar manor.

The issue has evolved beyond that of just privacy to somthing much bigger, the normalisation of surveillance capatilsm and the vilification of non dependency
