Re: Peasants! It's all your fault

I was thinking more along the lines of civil disobedience.

Trouble is, that kind of thing only works if people are motivated, and most people only seem to be motivated by simple, easy to understand, subjects. (which encryption/privacy/mass surveillance are not)

If (when?) people do finally wake up and smell the shackles, the internet is a grand tool for organisation. The only thing that would prevent it would be if it had been totally compromised by the vested powers who might conceivable object to such disobedience.

Oh yeah, it's all for terrorists, right.

I was always told to never ascribe to malice what can be explained by incompetence. Never did find out what happened to them when they disappeared.

I am Sparticus and so are you, and you and you etc.
