Your vhs rental history is better protected under the law than your Internet history. A guy basically went and got the records of a senators porn viewing habits and once he found out passed legislation. We should do that with all of them. Get their history and post it for all to see.

Absolutely, we'll see how they feel about having all their internet habits exposed! After all, aren't the people in power the ones who like to say that "if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear?" Hell... I'd like to see their whole histories exposed, maybe that's what it will take to get them to care about privacy. I'll have some fun with this...

Yeah, the vote was almost strictly across party lines. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't read what they were voting on, and they just sent their assistants to cast the vote for them, based on party lines.

That and why would the dems propose any bill? They'd have no hope. It's always a single party system with the other side being obstructionists.

NYT would've never posted the ad if they weren't all Republican.

Don't worry folks, Democrats aren't taking any of your privacy rights away!

They're gonna use this to take down online pedorings. FB, Twitter, YouTube all of them are riddled with pedo material.

Now if we can push mandatory military grade encryption on all devices we could move past all this spying.

Sort of. The current military/NSA encryption standard is HAIPE. HAIPE devices are largely based on commercialy available encryption, but use much longer keys, require the keys to be direct loaded using a port, and have measures built in to make them wipe themselves if taken apart.

What others said, plus the fact that commercial encryption is military grade because that's where we got it from. Instead of saying the military uses normal encryption we could say we all use military grade encryption.

Just today I realized the reason I cannot get JUST a data plan on my device through LTE is likely because I could encrypt everything in and out. Phone calls and all. They want to force/push you to just use the cell network which is easy as fuck for them to monitor for voice and text.

In reality is more simple than that. Operators will make more money from calls than from the same call over data connection. That's their real motivation. They invested a fuckton of money in the infrastructure for the calls and they want to get as much return as possible.

Can I get a deeper explanation or can you link me down the rabbit hole please? This sounds interesting.

That will never happen. Now the UK is pushing for access to WhatsApp encryption as a result of the last terrorist attack. Obviously this is precedent setting like the FBI iphone access (because they already have access).

there really should be extensive public campaigns encouraging people to hack software and be paid for it from tech giants. As it stands they knowingly insert back door entry and simply deny they know anything about it. If they can't make the code open source, then the next best thing is to make hacking rewardable for everyone

Been using PIA VPN for 3-4 years and very happy with the speed and services. Not surprised they are recommended year after year by Torrentfreak

What I am increasingly worried about is the possibility of employers paying for internet background checks of their employees. This will be the nail in the coffin for growth of any alternative thought and an end to the right to have conflicting ideological views. I don't know how I will handle this change if this happens or if i will be able to keep employment at my largely liberal company. Very alarming times we live in folks.

The Bill would make perfect business for PIA. That's how fucked up this is.
