I've been noticing some recent internet activity that is a little concerning. for example Youtube asked me today if i wanted to use my "full name"
on my profile. Why the hell would anyone want to disclose any personal info over the net? especially in light of the recent "innocence of muslims"
video which was apparently uploaded by someone with a "false name" (shocker i know right). Even things like the Cloud and social networks are
crossing boundaries of personal info. even things like how cookies allow sites to display ads relating to your interests. i dont really know what to
make of all this but wanted to hear what you all had to say.
Why would anyone want to disclose any personal info over the net?
People love doing that even though they dont. Facebook is a prime example. I have had numerous people tell me when I ask them why they share their
real full names, and they say this, "because the prompt asked for my real name".
They did not even think before they did it, they just did it. They did not think of the years and years of telling their children about not giving out
their names, etc. A programming that overrides the previous programming, and is far worse.
They do not care, or realize, that for "real names", they can still create pseudonyms.
I wish this was not true, but I would say 1 out of 5 People that I have asked in respects to facebook, said this.
Soon, youtube, google, etc, will not let you have service with them, without a 'true' name, and a phone number to verify it.
The ONLY reason all of this is going forward, is because People dont think, and have proven it, by accepting every other invasion of their privacy,
while waiving the motto around "if you do nothing wrong you have nothing to hide", as their mental midget mentality, and shortsightedness.
Little do they know, but they have helped tremendously in building the base structure of the future technology that will imprison them all into an
omnipresent matrix grid, that will keep tabs on their every action, and document it. This information will be used throughout a subjects life to
further adjust their reeducation to fit the coming tyrannical World where Humans have been reduced to carbon credits, as Human Resources for the elite
Or that is their plan.
Of course the plan to stop them is pretty simple. Stop using their crap.
Do we really need any of it to live a happy life?
If the answer is yes, then one is not living life, but living a artificial construct called "society", that was created and is still managed and
perpetuated by Men.
Look at where it has brought us.
The brink of many things, but mostly destruction of the species, and many others along with it.
