To all who use jondo and jondo operators, how do you respond to this?

The old news:

I know it started in 2014-2015 but it looks like it's going to be made official by the end of the year based on what's been happening lately. Besides TOR + Jondofox, what can we as jondo users do to better protect our privacy?

Well, unpleasant as it is, this is just another brick in the wall. And it's far from being new. State organizations and solitary rulers alike have always been wanting to control, surveil and bully the people, at times more so and at other times less. In times of unrest, such as resulting from economic depression or due to other causes, more so. And it's always the security argument that is brought forward to justify it. This can even be helped along by implementing the 'Strategy of Tension', as it has been named in modern times.

And in their attempt to control, surveil and bully (and manipulate) the people these institutions use every [technical] means available to them. If a given technology is [at a given time] outlawed they use it simply covertly. Not always but we always have to assume they do. Any good faith in any good promise that some available technology will not be used against us (I'm talking about ordinary people here and not criminals) sooner or later proves delusional. Always does.

We are talking about electronic communication. And besides the political issue ('What is our society turning into?') it boils down to gain charge of the technology we use rather than allowing it to be used against us. This is best done by using less and educating one self a lot more about it than mouse acrobatics. Narrow the gap between what You use and what You understand and actively control. These are the bad news and they are inconvenient, too. And I'm saying it explicitly for Your inconvenience.

The good news are, that You don't have to be a master wizard of electronic communication. You only have to be good enough to fend off what's thrown at You.(I'm not claiming to be such a master wizard myself, I'm only putting things into perspective here).Also, said institutions are far from being perfect themselves. We've seen the top US Threeletteragency being beaten square and fair by one single currageaous man named Ed Snowden. We've seen them as well as their german cousins permanently in the news which is rather the opposite of being secret. We've seen paris satirists killed by assaulters well known to the services after [allegedly] being taken off surveillance. You're not up against gods but if You wish to prevail You'll have to sweat a little.



Friendly Greetings

Protect our privacy online or offline? There is much that can be done.
