it's simply stupid for anyone to think we have any privacy in any of our electronic activity any more.

short of laws that explicitly forbid harvesting of our activity and the inclusion of backdoors we never will.

Seeing that WE have become the product and that entire industries now rely on spying on us and that this privatised spying has been leveraged to get around what laws there were in place (TURBULENT and TURMOIL programs for example where they harvest ALL of our internet traffic, inject malware into our systems through modifying traffic, and using the malware they injected they harvest data that we hold on our computers that we never intend to transmit or store on the internet - and then claim that unless they retrieve that data from their data store it doesn't count as surveillance) we're essentially fucked.

As revealed by Wikileaks, the NSA/CIA have been keeping the malware injection vectors (ie, flaws in software we use) secret so that TURBULENT and TURMOIL can continue to use them, instead of being responsible and advising vendors of them - pretending that these vectors aren't usable by other bad actors and aren't a security risk to all.

Even when we have companies attempting to provide us services like Proton mail, there's always something that can be used to force them to capitulate and comply.

yep - you can see it in all aspects of anything related to WW2 Germany.

I want the facts, not what some person not alive when all of this was going down, to add colorful language - because frequently it's aimed at completely misrepresenting what occurred to fit their own slant (often political) rather than history.

Seems that websites that can tell us what is going on from the Iranian perspective (and hence eyewitness accounts) are being taken down.

We already know the US State Department has huge influence in Google (See When Google Met Wikileaks) and that they see Google as a tool for regime change.

Another great example of why any one country having control of the DNS root servers for the Internet is a very bad thing.

It seems that anything that challenges the information domination of the surveillance friendly big data companies like Facebook and Twitter is deemed for 'Trump Fans' - instead of 'Privacy Fans'.

I'd just like my old internet back where we used to have privacy and the worst thing we had to worry about were cookies..

I wonder how far we are until there will be outright 'Authorised Information' and 'Authorised Computing'.

God knows people are treating organisations with a track record of lying, lying and lying some more as the sole reliable sources of information. Now we're just seeing lockdowns of alternative platforms that are not part of the great manipulation and surveillance network, in the cause of saving all of us from idiots. Because, you know, only idiots want to use surveillance and suppression free platforms.

Can't wait to see what activism will be deemed 'hateful ideologies' to suppress evidence of things like evidence of ethnic cleansing in Palestine (as has already been done on Facebook).

Expect embedded thought police similar to those at facebook.

Ah, the accusations about China and Huawei that turned out to be complete falsehoods right?

When Snowden released the evidence that the NSA had gone rogue and the mainstream media (ever the servant of government) blasted us with "Heartbleed Bug" that was in fact an encryption backdoor it became bloody obvious that there are shenanigans going on in US products.

Then the IPSEC protocol's NDA for the developers timed out and we found out it was backdoored too.

This new cold war narrative which is really a turf battle over digital surveillance is just stupid policy from Intelligence Services Dinosaurs that think that a backdoor only works for the good guys.

That said, I don't see this initiative working simply because some countries have shown they are incapable of acting in good faith - even to their own citizens ... eh Mr Clapper? The idea is nice though.

As far as i can tell, the whole US war with China manufactured comms is because China wouldn't insert NSA backdoors into their products.

so Facebook's internet service will essentially turn the internet into a cable tv service, where content is controlled by facebook, and by extension, people like The Atlantic Council.

we need a new peer to peer secure internet.

We have a wetlands sanctuary nearby and swans are being run over constantly by speeding jerks.

Only thing that seems to slow people down are speedbumps but our local council doesn't want to spend the money.

This smacks of the Starforce DRM debacle.

No vendor should be installing ANYTHING that interferes with what is running on a person's computers.

What an utterly idiotic and ignorant approach by the vendor.

yet the privately owned media operated by people also owning armament, pharmaceutical and oil companies can?

what a load of horseshit...

right now, it's only through independent journalism like The Intercept and Wikileaks that we get a chance of anything truthful from 'the media'.

anyone studying history can see that the mainstream media is simply the mouthpiece for domestic and foreign policy that financially benefits their elites whilst simultaneously suppressing other sources of truthful information.

It's more likely to be used to track whistleblowers talking to journalists than anything else - following Australia's draconian laws targeting Whistleblowing and Publishing.

They mean the insipid memes that about a measly 50 000 supposedly saw ( as in they were presented to the screen, doesn't mean anyone actually noticed them ) and among which most of them ( around 80% if I remember well ) were presented AFTER the election was over.

Damn... Big success for Russia there. *sarcasm*

So the US media and politicians are going to ignore the facts.

"New Knowledge" - a US company headed by ex-NSA staff trying to sell social media monitoring software to the US Government - hires a Russian PR firm to run facebook ads (like many, many other facebook PR firms all over the world) that have nothing to do with the election - then uses this as Proof Russia was interfering with the election.....

I'd like to say I am surprised at the amount of sheer stupidity over this we are seeing - but I grew up during the Cold War and have seen how - when you mix an ignorant public with repeated lies you shape policy...
