At this point as a white male of some moderate means, I am able to 'get' anywhere I choose to go. Becoming a paranoic idiot towards the vague goal of being 'left alone' is hardly worth the risk of spending some very ugly time being poked, prodded and questioned. Nor, in the real world, does it make any difference - other than upsetting the wife/kids/grandkids and pets. And, of course, such behavior would remove much of those means.

In this household, we have exactly that amount of privacy as we wish. Full Stop.

However, your plan has much merit - in executing it, you will divert 'the man' thereby, and so 'the man' will spend less time looking at the rest of us.

Enjoy - for now. Eventually they will get to everyone. This attitude of "Well if you have nothing to hide..." is NOT the idea. the idea is privacy. How about I had a camera in your bedroom and made note of any mistakes in your "technique" ? Any fetishes, kink, anything like that ? How about we all read letters between you and Mom about her peculiar medical condition, and of course we all need to know all the diseases you might have. The camera in your cable box will tell us which shows you actually watch and which ones you sleep to or just leave on while you do something else. And when you get up to go take a **** or make a sandwich generally so we know not to put the commercials on at that time. How about instead of the black box in your car that records the last few minutes of your moves, every move you make is watched and the cops do not have to stop you, the computer tells whether you were speeding and you must pay the ticket or lose your license, and we know you have the money and we don't care what it was for, even food for your kids.

You see, I am not a nut, but the fact is that if you give these ****s a femtometer they will take a parsec. The old boiling frog concept. I remember when they actually needed search warrants. It is none of their business what is in my pockets, my car or my home. If they have a reasonable suspicion go to a judge and get a warrant. But if you say that they will tear up your **** and leave you without a home of car, or whatever and you can't do a god damn thing about it.

This is not how we are supposed to live. And it does not protect us at all. Every time the government catches a would be terrorist it is either entrapment, or a stupid person with a proclivity they exploited, or one of their schills. Look it up. Every real attack on this country has succeeded. Look it up.

It is not a matter of security for us, it is a matter of security for them, and I have so much proof it would take you days to go through all of it. I could give you about 50 search strings and by the time you get through the CREDIBLE links they produce, every notion you ever had about the US will be shattered, just as mine were a long time ago. I know who and what these mother****ers are and we are like a god damn crop to them to be harvested.

You want proof ? And really, don't ask if you are just going to say "Mmm hmmm" and not get on board with trying to change this place and its course from certain distopia. And this is not completely off topic because privacy is obviously one of the OP's concerns.

I like kinky sex. I don't really give a **** who knows it. Within reason of course, is some real weirdness out there. But I couldn't care less who knows. I am secure in whatever. Any job, if they find out I would say "So what ?". I can do that because I don't brown nose or play politics or any of that ****. Anyone I work for who cares, I will quit and then just like the last couple of employers, they can hire me back at more money. Fire me ? Who is your closest competitor, in case you have a question.

I can do that, but not everyone can. not only might they work for religious or judgmental idiots, or a church, or who knows, they might have their job partly because of politics. They might also have responsibilities like kids, and be in debt up to their ears. They don't enjoy the type of autonomy I did, and still do to some extent. What of them ? If they and their olady like to play with handcuffs sometimes it should cost them their well being ? It can.

Well we have to think about others. They want to be a queer, as long as they don't bother me I must support their right to do so no matter how repugnant it is to me. (and it is but it is their right) By the same token, they must support my right to burn a nice fat joint once in a while.

If we don't stand together we will surely fall apart.

Had you a camera in our bedroom, surely you would learn something - as your present state is clear and incontrovertible evidence that you live a poor and unhappy life, and have much to learn about how happiness might be achieved.

Were you to try and sell me something via electronic means, be it TV or "placement" on web-pages and the like, you would fail as not only would you be lost in the noise, but that is not how we make purchasing choices.

Paranoia does spring from a level of ignorance, for the most part - as do conspiracy theories. However, as one learns a bit about life, the value of either as closely held beliefs becomes clear - nil. So, those that continue following that path are no longer ignorant. They are merely stupid. And, sadly, that cannot be fixed.
