@strypey @aral Personally, and with all tech and politics aside, I believe that people generally do not believe that corporations or bodies of various forms would ever want to senselessly harm others. When comfronted by what is really going on, people fall into a denial state saying "they would never do that" or "the Government would never allow that." Call it ignorance or blind conformity... We all were there at one stage. Great question btw.

@aral Sadly very true. Having a vision of peace, equality and a world that will last another 100 years is only the start. To bring it to fruition requires companies sacrificing their stranglehold which will not happen. Requires people sacrificing their apathy and materialism which will not happen. It creates a bleak vision of the future but we have to do our best while there is still time.
@tbernard Wow. I did not know that there was a series on Gnome. I'm going to have to search it out. Brilliant!
Latest episode of Manifest (s01e07). NSA watching the native real-time screen activity of a main characters with one of the latest iPhones. When the guy was confronted about what he was doing, he asked how they knew. Their response, "We're the NSA..." Me think there is a bit of a dig happening there.
@willplatnick May sound sucky... I take half a dozen deep breathes and be thankful for what I have. It doesn't always take away the grief but I dind it at least shifts my perspective.
@jlamar Thanks Josh. Appreciate your insight. I saw all of those and they looked capable. Good to know what the community is using and prefer.👍
@kieran My first thought was something created by the graffiti artist of the same name. He does stuff like that. Very talented. http://daim.org/site/
@aral I deal with this apathy towards privacy everyday. It seems like people no longer care. General idea is that those who do care must be hiding something.....
Fan of art, design, sound, code, light... and the all mighty creator who kicked it off. Peace and props to all.
