Apparently there has been some terrorist attack in London. No doubt another opportunity for all the usual authoritarians to emerge from their coffins and rant about how all freedoms should be banned and why we need more police and more spying laws and more blind trust in whatever officials say is necessary.

@solariiknight @arunisaac True. I have also read this post. I am out of whatsapp, but I am still in facebook for this very reason.

I also have my presence on ethical platforms like diaspora, mastodon, etc., and also active everywhere. This is definitely a burden, but we shouldn't isolate ourselves from the rest of the world and that is advantage for the right.

This is a very good guide to the values of #Anarchism. crimethinc.com/tce #Communist or #Anarchist doesn't matter, we need a coalition between the two for collective fight. :v_tone1:

@bob Yes. Yes. I understand that this is least significant among other serious violations. I just felt this should also be noted and raised.

The recent #vault7 leaks by #wikileaks confirms that #cia are pirating #windows. Now think about all those cases and humans punished for pirating IPRs.

How can this be justified? When ruling class or their ally does it's not a Crime?:thinking:

OK some group of kids on the street gifted my mom some flowers and a pepper spray today. My dad was like "that's so nice". I was like "that's suspicious". The pepper spray had a URL written on it. I ask my dad "what do I get if it leads to a far-right website". Yeah it led to a far-right website

"These techniques permit the CIA to bypass the encryption of WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, Wiebo, Confide and Cloackman by hacking the "smart" phones that they run on and collecting audio and message traffic before encryption is applied."

Samsung Smart TVs can be turned into spy devices by the CIA. This is incredible. https://quitter.no/url/980246 https://quitter.no/attachment/982598
