- 97% of Americans are constantly being surveilled.
97% of Americans have a device that constantly tracks their location, voice, and video at all times. I’m talking about your cell phone. It’s a surveillance machine. And ever since Edward Snowden’s leaks, it’s common knowledge how dangerous phones are, but still people use them all the time. It’s simple, the convenience and power that […]
- This kids comic had some shocking insights
Do you remember that old segment in Mad Magazine called Spy vs. Spy? Basically, there are two Spies, a black spy, and a white spy, and they are mortal enemies. The running joke is that each spy is always one step in front of the other one. It is a constant competition of plot twists. […]
- It’s been almost 10 years since this was revealed…
It’s been almost 10 years since Edward Snowden leaked information about the US Government spying on its citizens. And I’m sure you remember how shocking that news was.

For years, Truckers have been worried about self-driving cars taking their jobs. But after AI’s recent surge in growth, it’s not just truckers that are afraid.

- Your phone number could cost you millions…
How powerful is your phone number? I’m sure you don’t think about it much, but your phone number is very powerful.

This […]
- The Dark Implications of Sales Tracking
Discover Financial Services announced that they’ll be tracking purchases made with their cards at gun stores. Whether you believe in gun control or not, this is a clear example of targeting a group of people based off of their political beliefs. Digital payments provide no privacy. All of your purchases can be tracked. So, what […]
- Modern cars are designed to control you
Last year, BMW announced that some luxury features in your car (like seat warmers) require a monthly fee. I know, it sounds like a joke. But sadly, it’s true, and it’s only going to get worse.

- What Would a Totalitarian Government Look like with Today’s Tech?
We have been blessed in our lives with the amount of freedom we have. Throughout history many people did not share the same freedoms that we do now.

- The Global Disinformation Index is Thinking for You

- Great Depression or Golden Age?
The US dollar is losing value fast. I’m sure you can see it; everything is getting more expensive. Good luck going to a grocery store and spending less than $100. But this is nothing yet, there are many threats to the USD. Today, I wanted to talk about these threats, and give you some ideas […]
- Is TikTok Mind Control?
TikTok is controlling the minds of its users. I know, get your tin foil hats ready, this is a bold statement, but I have evidence to back it.

“Welcome to 2030. I own nothing, have no privacy, and life has never been better” This was Tweeted by the World Economic Forum on December 27th, 2016. And they are still pushing for this future.

- Convenience but at what cost?
Have you noticed that it’s practically impossible to buy a “dumb tv” anymore? Many people wouldn’t notice this.

These features are a backdoor […]
- Artificial Intelligence Should Change How You Use the Internet
How can you trust anything online in the time of deepfakes, and powerful AI? If you’ve been following AI technology, you’re probably feeling both amazed and concerned at how advanced it‘s getting.

- Being blackmailed is a very painful experience
I wanted to talk to you today about something that is very serious. Being blackmailed is an awful feeling. It makes you feel powerless, because if you don’t do what the blackmailer says, you’re risking your reputation. One of the most common ways that hackers blackmail people is through sexual images and videos captured of […]
- Switzerland is fighting to keep economic freedom alive…
Take a look inside your wallet, and count how much physical cash you have inside of it. Is it less then what you had in it 10 years ago? What about 15? Chances are, it’s a lot less. In a Gallup poll, three fifths of consumers said that they used cash only on occasion last […]

First, let me mention, there is a big difference between a service with […]
- More does not mean better.
We are constantly being sold the newest phone, app, and “groundbreaking” technologies that are coming out. But the truth is, do you really need a phone that has a slightly better camera? Do you need another app that tracks your steps and location? It’s easy to say yes, when the applications are free, but they […]

- Can you trust Google?
Google has gotten caught spying on its users over and over again, and nothing changes. It’s sad, but it’s true. Most people don’t know, or they simply don’t care. But that’s because they don’t understand how dangerous this surveillance really is. I wanted to make this email for one specific reason: to prove that Google […]
- Why Teach Your Children about Privacy?
I’ve been thinking about a very important subject lately; teaching children about online privacy. This is not an easy subject. Children are being bombarded on every side with countless messages.
