1. The best place to hide is in plain sight.
2. If I wanted to get the sheeples attention, I'd find a way to shut down their internet.
In trying to do my part, I've shared a lot of the invaluable information obtained through ATS (and other places) and attempted to put it into
undeniable form (cause most people I know, will only believe it if it comes from CNN or Fox or Wiki...)
But I can't force people to read it or pay attention.
If people losing their "freedom" online, makes them wake up and go "WTF!!"
But wouldn't shutting down the internet make it much harder to get your information out? The internet is the largest communications and
news/information medium on the planet. It seems to me that shutting it down would be something TPTB would want to do, not an organization that
supposedly supports freedom.
I suspect thats why its in 3 phases - the first being "educate yourself and others"
The idea being if you spread the message far enough, you'll have immediate (vicinity) support groups to help you out if the internet goes down.
But I did say loss of "freedom" online, not necessarily the "internet" altogether.
Most people log on, check their emails, some are even smart enough to look up at that lovely little "http" to see if there's an "s" at the end -
they feel secure, they feel private
If tomorrow they log on and find out one of their favorite sites was hacked, they might start to question why..
If the government keeps making an issue out of it, people will start to wake up and question WHY
All of these are hypothetical but people are living well within a comfort zone of lies. The internet really isn't as free as people think it is.
Even on this website (but I don't want to get into a T&C discussion, its just a minor point and yes, rules are in place for a reason).
I've been here a long time, and telling people for years to be careful what they do and say online, they're being watched - but no one is listening
man, no one wants to hear that. The only way to wake them up to their vulnerabilities, is to hack their favorite gaming website. Hack their
financial institutions. Hack all the things that keep them blind to whats really going on.
Since people get all zombified in thier playstation world, cutting them off from it seems like a good start to me. I'm reasonably confident the
intent of the smaller hacks (to get it started) was just that. To get it started. To break the stream of information that is making us numb and
