In conclusion, I do think about what I post online, but sometimes I don't care if anyone is watching. I do question myself later sometimes and wonder
if I made a mistake .
That is what i do, sometimes i get almost really angry about some stuff, so that i don´t care about "our protectors" collecting data.
I don´t know if i am just a lunatic tinfoil hat, but after more than 25 years of interests in politics and society, history, intelligence agencies,
in conjunction with "conspiracy theories", i am sure that every single internet access is observed.
Because, if you are interested in all that, sooner or later you will come to the first false flags, government foulplays and that stuff. Conspiracy
"Theories" that became truth.
And i have personal experience with such agencies, even if i never mentioned it by myself. But my grandfather, he died when i was 4 years old, worked
for a german intelligence agency. Later i was told he was working at the "Verfassungsschutz", but "only as a typist"... And when i was 16 or 17, i was
told by my parents that we have been observed for a long time.
Because my mother married my dad, who was coming from former yugoslavia. In the 1970´s, cold war and all that stuff, and yugoslavia was a "red star
state" at this time. It never was a problem that he was "muslim", as his passport stated, but only his passport. As mine says i am catholic, but i
never was, never believed in any idols, fairytails, as my parents. I just wanted to mention that at this time muslim people had no problems because of
their religion, that started at 9/11.
My parents asked me if i never mentioned that i had been followed when i rode my bmx bike. They could show me where and how exactly, over years, three
different cars observed us, where they exactly were parked, which type of cars it was. They were parked around 150-250m from our house. on a public
parking lot, where only people park that want to take a walk into the nearby forest. And it was a small town, everybody knew everyone, and everybodies
cars, for sure.
Next thing, why should my parents fool me with such a stuff? They waited to tell me that till i was grown a bit, to not shock me maybe. But when they
knew they could tell it to me, they did. I mean, i saw my dead garndfathers Verfassungsschutz badge a thousand times, his ID too. So he worked there
for sure. Plus the anti-communism thing at this time, no reason not to believe anything of this. And as a kid or teen, you have other things in your
head than to watch out for eventually followers you don´t know about.
So, to be honest, i really don´t know if they maybe even today have an eye on me, after my father is dead now for a couple of years, if the
observation ever ended. Why they observed us that long and hard, only because of my grandfathers job? I don`t know what maybe my dad did in his former
life in yugoslavia. I only know that he was at the military for three years, and he hated everything that had to do with the military after that. Not
more. We never had the best relationship, so i didn`t talk much with him about such things. One of my biggset mistakes in my life, i guess.
Then i had a buddy that was a computerfreak, and he was one of the first who had internet. I almost lived at his house, he even had a own network with
two computers at that time, so we could play online together(not that much games at this time xD). So i learned from the beginning what the web is and
how to handle it. I never activated anything in the web with my real name, there are no photos of me, no videos, there is no facebook or any "social"
media account nothing. I never used e-mails as more than to activate any memberships like on ATS, for example. Everything with fantasy names. Never
did online banking or anything with sensitive data on the web. I don´t even have a bank account(yes, that works without problems, but isn´t that
StartPaged(google, without that spying) my real name, nothing. But i am sure too, that all that does nothing to secure me, since i had to activate my
internet access with my real name. So somebody knows everything about me, which pages, forums i visit for example, even only that might be enough. But
i am sure that somehow every piece of data is collected, data from citizens that have only 1% chance to be interesting for BigBrother. And that can be
So yes, sometimes i don´t really say what i think on the web, don´t link friends to special pages, don´t even visit some pages. But i need to stop
that, even if it is not good for people in the future, who knows? That data collecting mania reminds me to the behaviour of J Edgar Hoover, who had
dossiers about everyone that could be dangerous for his power, collected everything about everyone. So, if he wanted something, he invited those
people, opened a drawer and gave those people the dossiers about themselves to read, problem solved for Edgar...
I guess exactly this happens nowadays, but worldwide, in an unthinkable scale.
Maybe self-censouring is a kind of self defense, but that can´t be the solution. It must be the other way around, there must be words like Allahu
Akbar, Bomb, Terrorism, Conspiracy Theory, Revolution, Eat The Rich, Attack, Snowden, Chemicals, Mass Surveillance, "IS", etc, in every post, in every
by people sended e-mail, in every comment, so that the Utah Data Center will blow up itself!
