Good day Sir,
I want to reference to a topic which could prove of great importance. A situation where the loss of personal liberty and freedom occurs. There are some that believe that we are in that situation currently.
I browse the Internet for news and factual information, much like earlier times when a person would pick up a newspaper. I have in the past used “Google” as my primary “Search Engine”. To my understanding and experience, my search results are cataloged and referenced. When I do searches through “Google”, I am bombarded by advertisements that seemingly reference my previous search preferences.
Case in point. I had been doing a search for cold weather sleeping bags, and nearly every site I visit contains an exact advertisement to a choice that I in fact have already purchased.
I have recently switched over to the “Epic privacy browser”. Their site states their browser does not divulge your personal IP Address to your Internet provider. To my understanding, your personal “IP Address ” is the same as a person’s mailing address.
Furthermore, “Epic privacy browser” reveals sources that are tracking you when you click on a website. As a test, I clicked on “CNN.com”. I found that no less than 27 independent sources were tracking and compiling my personal information and that I had visited that site. The browser in fact list the names of the companies/sources gathering the information.
The Department of Justice recently subpoenaed 1.3 million addresses of those visiting the infamous “Antifada” website. It seems that it intends on seeking information, to prosecute or track individuals, based upon an algorithm, of those simply clicking on that site.
I prefer to browse information independently and make personal judgments based on that, without interference from a governing body accusing me of “subversive” behavior and punishments for simply clicking on a site like SurvivalBlog.com.
I would not yet consider myself a SME, or subject matter expert, on this subject:
What do the readers, who are subject matter experts, recommend for this topic?
I would invite all discussions on these matters. God bless – Lone Wolf and Cub
