Which is why it is becoming almost mandatory to buy one of the single board computers like a Raspberry Pi or a Odroid C2. They are so cheap they can be run on disposable batteries and dropped in a trash can once you are through with them. If you want to keep the data that you had on them their total storage is on a single micro SD card or a eMMC chip. The Micro SD card or a eMMC chip will contain the entire operating system as well as browser and all data. They are so cheap (and use WiFi Wireless) you can have many of them. Once for school, one for the library, one for Starbucks, and one for the wifi hot spot at road side rest areas. Can you imagine setting in a Starbucks with three or four of them on at the same time having a 3 or4 way chat session with only your self. Can you imagine putting on the man making them think they have uncovered a large cell of bad guys when it is just one guy or gal (not to be sexist here) putting them on.

It is going to get to the point where it is too dangerous to use a computer, or go online in certain 'places'.

Maybe not right now (of course), but when global tyranny really takes it's full form.

I'm not a tech expert, but I'm hoping there is some kind of way around the surveillance. Maybe we need to look at the technology differently in regards to how we use it, etc?

Yeah then the government pays those tech guys exorbitant sums of money to use their ingenuity for the government.

Problem is it'll be even more dangerous to not use a computer.

What other ways of looking at using technology do you mean?

Maybe we need to re-think the whole predictable, accessible format of modern computing. It's just far too easy to herd us when we all use the same search engines, sites, post our personal details everywhere, etc. We need a complete re-think of how and why we use the internet in order to survive an era of total persecution. Luckily we haven't got to that stage yet.

You just have to assume at this point that the DC power structure simply hate their constituents.

It is all for show, they already get unrestricted access to anything they want. You have no rights as American citizens. The DOD police, the FBI, the CIA will put two in your head if they need to and cover it up as "suicide". The Senate is in the hands of the IT companies that will get billions (trillions) to upgrade the Total Information Awareness Infrastructure to be wholly compatible with the large number of new devices, and decades of "big data" for analysis. Combine with real time monitoring and surveillance of society, and they have enough to make lots of money putting people in jail or just killing them and covering it up.

When drawing this line for people who told me how great the sit-in protest was they respond with "One thing at a time!" and shit like that. I feel like the standard Democrat is fairly cynical and has been trained to accept incredibly low return on their votes and representation. The Right was like this only a few short years ago and they seem to have thrown up their hands first and gotten on board with a political revolution. I fully expect that large percentages of Democrats are in the process of that same transition right now - it starts with the 50% of Bernie voters who have discovered that their party is rigged and it will continue as Hillary disappoints throughout the campaign, is exposed as a total crook and hypocrite, and then promptly loses to Trump, who ends up being a total good President.

Well, Trump is more openly in favor of these sorts of surveillance programs than any candidate I'm aware of, so I'm not sure that last bit follows. I'm voting for a third party, but I will say that Clinton is likely to be a more predictable and manageable candidate. Being a psychopath, she is self-interested and will therefore bend to the will of the people if we pressure her enough. Trump, being a narcissist, will inevitably double down if he meets any opposition whatsoever.

Trump is not really "in favor" of any particular end policy - he is merely in favor of using surveillance tools for security purposes, something that is not new. At the same time he makes statements about maintaining an open and free society - a big improvement from the people who have implemented and maintained the dragnet surveillance. It is my feeling that we'll have a conversation about this and Trump will do what he can do maintain this balance, something we have not had for the past 15 years at least.

get a proxi asap if you dont have one. not always fullproof, but unless you are actually a threat to the establishment they wont spend the money and resources on you. teach your kids to not put too much info online from a young age. dont let them get to their teens ignorant about reality while they post every detail about themselves online.

That's not unsound advice but it is in that it's grossly insufficient. Because going online at all is giving them too much data.

true enough. however, I highly doubt they would listen to me to that extent. they will grow up with gov surveillance as the norm, none of their friends will care even remotely as much. they will succumb to peer pressure more so than a fathers advice, at least in the stage it matters.
