I know you are watching, and have known since the beginning. DUH!

once upon a time,

you are Knowing your internet connection and communications are being monitored.

I was wondering if I am the only one that doesn't care. I would rather they were not, but ultimately I don't care.

I have tested my theory and have proven that not only are they under surveillance but that the information is then shared amongst affluent/ powerful people to warn them of potential "trouble" in their area.

I made a thread not too long ago and have proven that what I got in terms of a physical response was due to its creation. The thing is I don't care. I don't mind that people come to see for themselves. I don't. I am still going to be me and do what I will do. You have proven me right.

The end.

I agree with you. They are watching and I also do not care. Come and take me away for my opinion, I may not have access to a weapon, but I will fight it to the death. I never cared, and never will care, what those who are watching think of my opinions. And I am sure there are MANY others out there who feel the same way. We are not afraid!

Yup. I do not really care either. It is not like I am planning anything. I am simply trying to gain knowledge for my own self. They can watch my internet. They can follow me. They can have cameras on every corner to watch my every move. It does not matter. I will not stop trying to gain knowledge.

Being monitored on ATS is the least of my worries. I regularly send emails to elected officials questioning why they did what they did. I have not heard back once. Even on the municipal level, I hear nothing. I can't wait for the next election when this person comes back campaigning. I think I will trap him with a couple of pages of unanswered questions.
I wish they would answer me, or at least wire tap my phone so I could feel special!

Watching is a misleading term, for the most part. There are people who have the job of participating ( infiltrating, disrupting, misinforming ) they are not the real mechanism of surveillance. Computer software specializing in the analysis of heuristics, word patterns, and voice analysis are doing the watching. These are powerful machines crunching a LOT of data. Only flagged information is actually viewed by a living, breathing person. If that happens, if you flag a protocol, then whatever flagged the protocol is reviewed by a specialist and analyzed. If it proves problematic - then you will be watched.

Right now chances are that you're just a handful of bits in data stream.... literally a drop of water in a coursing river.

I know we're being monitored, in every single aspect you could imagine.

That is why I don't shy from these sites, my political protests, my consumer data, the data mining on the net, facebook, twitter, the newspapers, etc, etc...

I stay anonymous where I feel its truely needed, but other than that, we need to make a public stand, it piisses a lot of people off along the way, but you will be aware I am an active member of the 99%, that's well aware of what "they" are doing..

If we hide, what's the point?

If you aren't doing anything dumb then why worry?

At least that is how I see it.

I lurk for the most part on the net, rarely getting involved, ATS is the exception, I am quite vocal on this forum about my oppinions, much as I am IRL.

If they want to watch or whatever, I care not, I actively support and encourage a citizen uprising against the .gov, in almost every thread I see involving the idea, as I see it as the only route left to true freedom for the people.

I hope they don't like, I hope they get mad about it, I couldn't give a damn if they like it. I will not be threaten or bullied into silence, ask the bullies who tried it in highschool, they learned their lesson the hard way, I will fight back, every single time, I wasn't born with the ability to not defend my rights, no matter the extent of their reaction, as mine will be equally unpleasant, if not more so.

I don't scare easily, am not intimidated by pretty much anything, be it the german shepard that I nearly killed when it attacked me at 8 years old( my mom saved its life by pulling me off of it, I had choked it unconcious) walking away with the stich scars on my head from it trying to crush my skull.

They can bring any time they like, I am always ready, in fact, I was born for the day they try.

Were you the one with the thread about your Ipad being commandeered....probably not.
However, I concur with your observations, and if you had been who posted the thread I referenced, I thought long about replying, as I could have referenced American patent pages about Apple's recent patents....
There are times to speak, and times to be silent. Although, admittedly, often I do not know which they are.LOL
Yes, I not onlly believe but KNOW that you are correct here, and frankly, anyone that argues paranoia here is decidedly out of touch and ignoring reality, if not outright obfuscating for the purposes, of nothing nice.
Having said that, do I care? Yes, I do, and it is not because I am a villain in the non sequitor argument that if I have nothing to hide I won't mind anyone looking.
You see, let's take what you describe in "watching," and go a step further, and ask, what is you are not in my computer, but in my mind? Yes, I am going there. We have lots of threads here, that go there. Many of us brave the schizophrenia label, put down the crack pipe label response with this.
If you can be in my computer, in my home, in my car, etc,. and I know you are in my brain, piping out, piping in.....well, where are we then? You see, if we have no expectation of privacy anywhere, then we have none in our physicality, either, particularly if we get into an argument about who pays for your medical expenses, and even if you pay your own insurance, their are arguments that challenge the privacy even there.
Your computer is a virtual interface, and these days, so is your mind. And a line in ( as simple as a modem on your computer) is a line in......and btw, let's have fmri so I can visualize what I have already piped in, and then truth is totally a matter of interface, which becomes a matter of power and income,
So, you see how privacy, leads to many other things, as a matter of progression, by default........and suddenly, your acttions are mine, and if thoughts have energy, then even one who just thought it (0r had it piped in and out), is responsible, with the word IMPUTE and then where is cloud computing, after all, because if we can put it over your head, then what is next????

No matter what you do, somebody's gonna get pissed off about it and try to change it and correct the behavior any dirty way they can. That's why I just don't care and will continue to be myself and express myself in my own way, society's rules be damned.

It just doesn't really matter because that's all people do is get pissed off at you because you did something wrong, at least according to them and how they were taught by their parents.

Conformity is the way of America, not individuality.

And if I had the money, I'd buy myself a huge ship and go and live on it for the rest of life with a crew and a small harem of girls all just for me. I'd have the best electronics money could buy so I could have the internet and satellite TV. I'd only put in when we needed repairs and supplies.

That's how much I hate society.
