How to Destroy ‘Surveillance Capitalism’ by [deleted] in DigitalAikido

I thought that was an interesting title for a topic. So I clicked it. Only to find that it's equating flat earthers with anti-vaxxers. There's a mountain of evidence that the Earth is not flat I agree. Show me any evidence the vaccines actually work.. there isn't any (unless you're referring to the data that was submitted thay was actually referring to aspirin) and there is a mountain of evidence that vaccines are harmful. But to your point... Using simple common sense... The ingredients list ought to tell you that it shouldn't be in your body. But they have to make complicated cocktails or they can't make money on it. Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say, is,

Go fuck yourself shove your vaccine up your ass.

Thanks. You don't post any of your Haskell Code and I say as little as possible about my location. It's probably not where you think though. You answered my question thoroughly.

Who gives a fuck what they think. Maybe not in your country but in mine they need probable cause to get our equivalent of a subpoena or warrant. And their is no mass-data-aggregation allowed so far in EU, afaik.

I had two charges dismissed because their discovery couldn't decrypt shit so they had to return my hard drive and usb sticks (six months after: these ass-holes. I'm quite sure they tried every shit they had). But i got to admit that my lawyer is quite the pit-bull in criminal law. As i'm very patient with actual encryption.

I actually am in two conflicts with our law on two other occasions right now. And since i actually am an algebraic, i don't fear them. The couldn't even waterboard shit out of me. Because no one actually into algebra uses passwords you can remember. Or could you recite an 8kb long key ?

I don't know how this is on your continent though. NSA grabs every shit they can get from metadata linking it trough a giant meta-data-search-engine and fumbling and stumbling through it since about 20 years now.

That is why i never post any of my actual Haskell code. I don't have any proof if it actually achieves what it should. Because i only got a very closed circle of three persons to look at it.

And then you got the FBI instigating you as mass-murderer terrorists or something on MSM before they even got any insight, what you actually did whatsoever.

When writing with me about encryption i know only two other guys i trust since now for over ten years.

But maybe you're rather right: In five-eyes countries you shouldn't try this shit at home. Because they rather throw you into Guantanamo before admitting that your the better mathematician before the 23000 they employ.

You need a certain attitude to go through with this. I don't know if you have it. But i'm half German half Danish. More i won't post on this one.

Afaic: If they try to shoot or poison me: All my research is dead for about 200 years.

Because i am into symmetric multi-dimensional encryption with a salt you on your continent won't find.

If I begin using TOR won't police and government agencies immediately think I am doing something illegal?

One of the main ideas behind this project is:

Beat censorship which more or less equals in beating cloudflare on the white web.

Now:

1) If you get an oldskool microwave with an eggtimer (not the ones you gotta push too many buttons to even get it to run) that is constantly connected to electricity. AND

2) a finer drill like one of these : https://cordlessdrillzone.com/ ... (: Real Pros only use https://www.hilti.de/) AND

3) Learn to remember the mainboard design of every PC you use at this location : They can't even dream of getting your data and programs before breaking through your hopefully reinforced doors.

But you gotta be fit and fast in your reactions. This usually follows from a high intellect or high physical speed, which you hopefully both trained.

Cameras are always giving you a timely tactical advantage when they try to get you on your ground. If you know how to use them.

I'd also advise you to carry one of these fine multi tools on your body all the times : https://www.leatherman.com/multi-tools .

Encryption also is a nice thing to have, but since there is no perfect https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forward_secrecy ,

i wouldn't trust it too much.

Manjaro. Previously had been using Mint and was happy enough with it but then decided to build a Linux gaming PC and on a recommendation in a forum tried Manjaro. The degree to which everything wasn't like pulling fucking teeth made me a convert.

Mind you that was a few years ago so things may have changed, but until there's good reason I'm sticking with Manjaro.

Ubuntu LTS for servers.

TBH I've never tried a distro that I actively didn't like except Elementary. I would use any of them if I had to without any real complaint (except Elementary).

That was the 1990's. And now even SoftImage has been retired.

I liked my IRIX on SGI Indy and SGI O2 workstations back when I was animating commercials and proficient in Unix. I've forgotten most of it but still know enough to be dangerous. And worse - back then we were dependent on the IT guys to keep it all running smoothly.

Then Microsoft moved in, bought SoftImage, and everything was ported to Windows.

I liked Ubuntu before they started limiting you.

I'm trying out Mint Cinnamon, but I need to reconfig my whole work space here to do it properly.

KDE Neon because my friend who knows a lot more about this stuff told me it was good. Was a really easy install each time I did it, and even configured itself alongside an existing windows 7 on one laptop without any fuss.

Nice clean looking, seems to run great, but has a modern feel. Probably great for people trying to move over from mac or windows.

I was watching Chris Titus Tech this one time and he touted the benefits of Pop! OS in regards of overall ease of use and maintenance and it being optimised for gaming and such(AMDGPU drivers and Vulkan API installed by default). I installed it being the suggestible person I am and was pleasantly surprised. I've had system breakage in the past with Fedora after updating. Debian is great as it uses stable packages and is mostly free of proprietary software but I like having compatibility with different formats out of the box. Ubuntu is alright but I am a bit wary of Canonical. I tried Manjaro and was pleased with it but updating with the newest packages had me worry about breaking my install.

I used to be on manjaro too, and before that linux Mint. I've only ever broken broken on graphics card driver updates, and even then the fix was no big deal. I forget which distro I was on when that happened, but linux has been leagues ahead of Windows in terms of stability. Not an expert, but I'm happy with Debian (stable) and I tell people it's "old man linux".

There's more fun and usability in choosing window managers, independent of the OS.

Kubuntu because I wanted something I didn't have to think too much about.

Debian, because new software is over hyped and arch had me downloading 2GB of updates a week. You're also supposed to check the arch wiki before any updates, to avoid breakage.

OS is boring, most of us live in the web browser.

Repost in /s/DecentralizeAllThings, /s/DIY, /s/FLOSS, /s/OpenScience_Scientism, and/or /s/technology ?

FYI: Over a year and a half ago, I reorganized a lot of Wikipedia confusion by starting this https://infogalactic.com/info/Open_source article (in the disambiguation page) instead of a whole bunch of confusing diversions.

It's a curious coincidence of synchronicity that I recently mentioned Aikido, a term I consider but rarely use: /s/PyramidPractice/comments/4drg/spyramidpractice_accounts_moderation_record/g7hx

I feel like I mentioned it earlier in another comment or message this week too.

Aikido is not just about self-defense but about using their energy against them to neutralize them without harm. This is critical. I'm not sure that article gets that.
