Dr. Mikes, question-

Do you feel that the search engine duckduckgo really prevents spying by PRISM 
or do you think it may just be a 'honey trap' of sorts, or that the software is 
not all it is promoted as being? Would you advise virtual desktop software as a 
security method, or is this a waste of time?

Sincerely,

Mitch

There's still a free version of PGP      available as GnuGP.  But people 
generally don't want the      inconvenience of dealing with encryption.

How to protect your computer from spying by            the IRS and Eric H. 
Holder, Jr.
        
 
        
These days it seems that you need to protect            yourself from more than 
        
commercial vendors, namely spying by the IRS            and Eric H. Holder, Jr.
        
Snowden, the man who recently exposed the            NSA activities, says he can
        
from his desktop listen to your telephone            and read your email.
      
    
    
    But it would have been illegal for him to do so.  People are always    able 
to do illegal things.  The question is what preventive measures    should be 
taken.  Snowden was an IT tech who was just supposed to    keep the system 
running, so of course he had the ability to tap data    flows.  But there 
should have been some administrative oversight to    keep him from doing that 
beyond what was necessary for his work (and    maybe there was).
    
    The question is should it be legal for the government to collect    this 
data.  The Supreme Court has said it's Constitutional and polls    say it's 
favor 62% to 34% by the public, so...


&- The overall collection of DATA is a hoax: only the addresses are collected 
without court order. The Hoopla is only political. The "majority" in the poll 
voted for security: to eliminate potential violent acts by 'enemies'. The 
Copnstitution is a 300yo thinking in medieval terms, usable for human 
principles, not the FACTS in our 21st c. life. I am a sharp critique of the 
government(s), in this case they work in our behalf.



The US government is doing the dictator trick (NDAA 12, NDAA 13). Those are not 
just non-constitutional they are anti-constitutional.


The human rights applies to all humans, or they lost their meaning.


The private life has to be respected for all humans.


It seems clear to me that prohibition has succeeded in putting bandits into 
power, which makes legal or illegal things only for special interest.


Health should be separated from the state, like religion. Free competition has 
to be allowed among all art of helping others, and nobody can pretend for you 
what is good to you.


&- Except if YOU require the community to PAY for the curing of YOUR sicknesses 
(maybe caused by YOUR own negligence) e.g. emphysema etc. by smoking.  




Some people do money on fears and catastrophes. The war on drug is a golden 
mine for bandits and terrorists.
After the NDAA 12 I am afraid that the war on terror begins to look to me 
suspiciously like the war on drug. 


The notion legal/illegal must be relativized when the evidences add that the 
government don't play with the rules.


&- There is no "WAR ON TERROR" - nor ON DRUGS. There are 'efforts' and 'lies'. 
Against CERTAIN aspects. 
Others are accepted as 'money making' endeavours. The governments play by their 
own rules, not with rules of anybody else. Governments ar exploitative 
ensembles.
