Anonymity in this day and age is nonexistent.
It used to be a citizen, with a little bit of effort, could live life without anyone really knowing anything about what you do with your time and money. You could stash your money away and keep your name out of the public records pretty easily and expect that you and your privacy were pretty secure.
Those days are gone. Do you know who the biggest culprit is when it comes to invading our privacy? It’s not legions of underground hackers…it’s the U.S. government!
With computers, credit cards, public information access, databases, and government spying, anyone can find out anything about you at any time.
We are all exposed.
Now the government is spying on your cell phone calls too. Read all about it in this shocking article from the Cato Institute here:
I don’t know about you, but when I read that MIND BOGGLING number of government demands for cell phone subscriber information, my jaw just about hit the floor! Frankly, I don’t think I’m out of line to be outraged about the kind of surveillance we’re under. Let me know what you think in the comments.
(By the way, I’m thinking of putting together a series of interviews with some of the top privacy experts in the world. The plan would be to gather the best tips and strategies for helping you stay “under the radar” and protect yourself from cybercrime and identity theft, governmental spy programs and other privacy threats. Let me know in the comments below if this is info you’re interested in this.)
