The Taming of Cyberspace?

Far more important than *random nonsense*, this is an essay by Ferdinand Thommes, known on the Internet as 'devil', the lead visionary for Siduction Linux.

Things are not going to get any better any time soon. I call it the 'taming of cyberspace', and I hope it never comes to be. This hits home with me in particular, because for many years I was required to use PGP encryption on a daily basis to protect the sensitivity of the data I handled, and Phil Zimmerman is one of my personal heroes. Read the underlined links in devil's post to get a background if you aren't familiar with this stuff.

Essay here:

Please sound off here. This cuts to the core of what we value; is it important to you?

The worst part of this wave of fascism is that they "Think" they are defending democracy or at lest they claim to think that.

But then when ever a naked power grab takes place it's to uphold the highest standards of human freedom...

This will all end in tears and I see little hope of avoiding real blood shed if liberty is to be regained...sigh...

Terrorism as a force has prevailed...for today...

I have fixed the link. Dunno what happened there.

Edit: OK, now I know what happened. Our resident censor did not like the word s*** in the title and the link. A little bit ridiculous if you ask me.

Verry late addition, please excuse. There is no privacy on the Web (forget any "encryption" scheme or Tor--who made it for God's sake?) Or in real life. This might hurt less if having nothing to hide made you innocent in the eye of the monster that sees all. If only! I'm glad I'm an olde phart, I don't think that civil disobedience will help before it's nearly freakin' Judgement Day, as in "The Terminator" movies. I pray it happens before that doomsday!

It's been wonderful getting to know so many GREAT folks, a once in a lifetime privilege! I'm hanging in there, I wish the BEST for us all!!
