PIA is owned by London Trust Media, a 5EYES production.

They log and cooperate with the companies that deal with ICE/IRS/FBI/CIA/M5. When you use a VPN you're choosing a "man in the middle", this advertisement is mocking you because they literally handle the key exchange which is what governments wish your ISP could do more easily but can't on standard networking equipment at scale. Sending your traffic to a NWO server is just like paying the courts for a stenographer to document your illegal activities.

The crypto wars are the most important political fight of our generation.

If we lose them, all hope for individual freedom is lost.

While I pray that public awareness and debate will lead to reform, bear in mind that the policies of men change in time, and even the Constitution is subverted when the appetites of power demand it. In words from history: Let us speak no more of faith in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of cryptography.

Cryptography is free speech and a weapon to fight for privacy, if we are ever to throw off the violence of the State I am convinced that the cryptography’s unique resistance to violence is what will make that possible.

There's a very high probability that most cryptography is already broken by intelligence. However, the intelligence community's resources are not infinite. It is augmented to almost totality of communication surveillance with the capitulation of corporations to their bidding. This fight is simply about whether government wants to allow citizens to hide from corporations, IMO. And seeing how corporations are eager to work with government to sell out privacy, we're going to lose this fight.

PRIVATE INTERNET ACCESS IS SHIT. DO NOT BUY THEIR SERVICE. THEY DO DEEP PACKET INSPECTION.

When I used them they throttled downloads through certain services to only a handful of kbps, literally worse than dialup. You know the only way to do that? Packet inspection. They are NOT SAFE, they are NOT SECURE, they absolutely keep logs, and just by virtue of being probably the biggest VPN provider, they also are a huge government target. I repeat DO NOT buy PIA!

Bro, they operate in the US, what do you expect? I use them for general purpose shit, getting past some ip rate limiting and region locking occasionally. If you want a full on privacy vpn for doing illegal shit then get mullvad. I wouldn't watch youtube on them cause it's slow but I would on pia.

A lot of funding is going into their marketing budget it seems.

I’ll just be over here praying it is in safe hands and not a case of lulling me into a false sense of security long con.

I am however glad to see they are standing up for Freedom of Speech and I hope you have a great day Mister Freedom of Speech Fighter, you! :)

They have been tested in court several times including other governments like Turkey. I believe their server there was even raided and they didn’t have shit on customer info.

"Hey you people who are wary of being watched and have nothing to hide, come pay to use our special service which will give you full privacy, honest!" Hell, even if the company is 100% legitimate, you can bet our friendly government has a bunch of hardware just on the other side of their backbone connections.

Big balls, unless they are a government plant that is. Also, i have a feeling this post is your way of insinuating that they might be Voat's top sekrit benefactor, since people have been busting your balls about if for months now. Would you say that .....you believe their services are not compromised? Since we know TOR and many VPN's are literally glow in the dark.

You're probably right, man.

I hope they are the benefactor, but not glow in the dark, because I've been using PIA for a few years now, and I'd like to think that some of the money I've given them has ended up helping Voat.

Also, unrelated. I'm wearing flip-flops right now. And they were made by Crocs. ;-)

I like the part about "forcing companies to install backdoors is an attack against free speech." So it's fine if a corporation like Google, or farcebook want to violated our 4th amendment rights, and spy on people's data, but it's considered an "attack" if the "white house" makes the corporations install a backdoor.

That's literally what free speech is legally. Just protection from the government. Different from the 'spirit' of free speech.

Free speech is not a legal concept. The first amendment is a legal concept. Free speech is a universal ideal, a God-given right.

You don’t understand the importance of privacy.

1776 happened because revolutionaries were able to coordinate in relative anonymity and secrecy.

What happens when government becomes more vigilant than Sauron’s eye?

Unlike the communities traditionally associated with the word "anarchy", in a crypto-anarchy the government is not temporarily destroyed but permanently forbidden and permanently unnecessary. It's a community where the threat of violence is impotent because violence is impossible, and violence is impossible because its participants cannot be linked to their true names or physical locations.

Cryptography is as important to securing the safety and privacy of our information as rifles are to securing our physical safety.
