It should be clear that personal privacy in today’s world of high tech data mining, unmasking personal records and opposition research is a thing of the past.

The power players within the Internet data collection monopolies (Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple. etc.) have massive data mining campuses for the sole purpose of enriching themselves at the expense of the unsuspecting users of their products and services.

Selling and sharing personal data has become a trillion dollar business.

Mega cellular phone companies have developed the capability to track your conversations, your location, your interests and your buying patterns. This personal profile data is sold on the Internet daily.

Major online retailers such as Amazon and Walmart are using data collected and stored to destroy their competition both online and locally.

The collaboration of techniques engineered to track, organize and often mislead the public is pervasive. So when you hear about collusion between foreign entities to disrupt the nation you need to be aware… collusion is far more common and closer to home than you might know.

Not to be outdone the federal government has its own massive data collection and mining facilities under the disguise of homeland security, law enforcement, tax compliance, medical record keeping, financial oversight, and hundreds of “need to know facts.”

Thousands of federal, state and local agencies have created justifications to violate the right to personal privacy. The concern that the average citizen should have is they are paying for this intrusion in many different ways.

Politicians use this data as a tool to “dig up dirt” on their opponents.

They fund this underhanded tactic with personal donations, political action funds, and money coming from lobbyists that expect a return on their investment. The concept of running a clean campaign for an influential political office is a thing of the past. The Hillary Clinton funded FISA Dossier is an example that this type of information (right or wrong) can be a dangerous source of privacy violations.

In addition to the privacy issues that have arisen over the past few years, we now face cyber terrorism that allow criminals to corrupt our equipment, damage our reputation and publish unfounded mind altering information.

Malicious software is pervasive and resides to some degree in every personal device that accesses the Internet. Only highly skilled professionals with diagnostic tools and years of experience truly know how to remove this stuff.

Major software and hardware manufactures have created techniques to destroy your investment through planned obsolescence.

This tactic was first introduced about 10 years ago, but has now become an accepted practice to the point consumers actually have been trained to believe that the useful life of a device or the software they purchase is ended after 2 years… folks this is criminal!

Video: March 21, 2018 – In an exclusive interview with CNN’s Laurie Segall, Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg apologizes (sort of) for how his company handled the Cambridge Analytica debacle.

Anyone that thinks the law, the government, and/or huge monopolies are going to protect them from these breaches of their personal rights are out of touch with reality.

The only way to stop it is to stop buying the hype, stop re-electing incompetent politicians and stop the addictive mind numbing obsessions with social media and smartphones.

The country can only be restored when the people wake up to these facts. Sadly the number of under-educated and clueless people is increasing. Even given this warning, they fail to recognize the long term impact of losing these basic personal rights.
