Internet use is similar to driving.

Internet use is a privilege, like driving is.
To drive one must learn how to drive, practice, pass a written test, pass an eye test, pass a driving test. To drive safely one must consider many things as they drive. Safe drivers often get into accidents with reckless drivers.
To use internet, one must separate life with internet, from life without internet. Many tests occur; emotional, physical, mental, thought harboring. Creating a life which does not depend on internet, may provide a constant to compare to life with internet use.
As safe drivers often get involved in accidents with reckless drivers, an internet user who separates internet life from life without internet, often gets involved with internet users who do not separate internet life from life without internet.
What would roads be like if they were open and free, without surveillance?
What would internet be like if was open and free, without surveillance?
What would roads be like if no one could take away privilege to drive?
What would internet be like if someone could take away privilege to use internet?
Design of vehicles and roads creates situations when accidents happen.
Design of humans and internet creates situations when internet use affects actions performed away from internet.
In my experience, time without internet leads to less dependence on internet. I see no problem with depending on technology/internet for many things. But I see a problem with not realizing when a choice has been made to depend on internet instead of depending on something else. Time away from internet may lead to realizing independence from internet/technology, may lead to finding other things to depend on. If that can happen, may be surveillance can be seen for what it is, and always has been; a necessity. The amount of internet surveillance appears to be directly related to amount of dependence/reliance internet used for.

  • Apr 11 2014: For me Internet use is similar to diving !
    I have never learned to dive but i dive, it's just interesting what is down there :)

    Apr 7 2014: If you want some of the truths I know about surveillance get a pair of sunglasses and a watch or a time peice and I can start to show you the greater GOOD in life.

    You see without chaos we will never know what PEACE is so all we can HOPE for is Harmony...

    NOW that you have sunglasses use the light too reflect off of you EYEs and you will see the reflection in the sunglasses this is the master and you are the pupil this is why you eye as a mechanism called the pupil... You are now learning things many have known for years.

    Why do you think security always wheres sunglasses they use it to sharpen their intuition to see who is GOOD and who means harm... I am not alloud to say what that is used for but it keep you in line of what is happening RIGHT NOW and that everything is OKAY (Back to the d3 or 3 - dimensional reality)....

    I know I have gone way beyond what has been extended thus far on this type of discussion but I am sick of people being ignorant and thinking they know what is really happening RIGHT NOW. I know nothing and I am sticking to it any question asked of me will get a RIGHT HAND A OK...

    Listen to the music if you can not watch without jugdement to see the signal or tattoos signalling others:
    Miley Cyrus - "Wrecking Ball" = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=My2FRPA3Gf8
    Miley Cyrus - "23" = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbEoRnaOIbs

    Find you role and hang on for the greatest ride of your life...
    Peace NO I mean Harmony to you and you community to all that take the TIME to OPEN UP THEIR MINDS...
    Peace Out..

    Sincerely Joshua Sisk

    Apr 5 2014: Listen I fully understand your discussion but the argument is flawed because driving is an ACTION and Internet is an Idea. Surfing is the action but you can not kill with surfing the internet.

    The computer is the weapon you speak of and the only restriction that are placed on the equipment are by you. I am trying to literally understand you stand on your conversation because you start with a comparison and close with multiple ideas which one are you wanting do discuss.

    Illegal usage of internet or Technological dependencies that we currently have?

    But yes you would not keep your car unlocked in every city you visit that is why they have locks because you want to protect your investment. The surveillance are parties that invested to keep the option of logging on available to all not to restrict some...

      Apr 5 2014: I am up for discussing any part of above idea. These 2 parts interest me most:
      1. this relation:
      The amount of internet surveillance appears to be directly related to amount of dependence/reliance internet used for.
      2. This idea:
      Creating a life which does not depend on internet, may provide a constant to compare to life with internet use.

          You asked me:
          "I am trying to literally understand you stand on your conversation because you start with a comparison and close with multiple ideas which one are you wanting do discuss."
          I replied:

          Afterwards, you proceeded to contribute many irrelevant words and links to pop music videos.

  • Apr 3 2014: No.
    I can get as drunk as I like and do no more than offend people when using the internet.
    I'm not a fascist, like you. So I do not agree that using the internet is a "privilege".

      Apr 5 2014: What if a person gets drunk, uses internet often enough that they walk around talking about internet all day? Are they likely to collide with someone who does not use internet? Are they likely to collide with someone who separates internet use from daily life?
      The analogy is that reckless drivers collide with safe drivers, as internet users who do not separate internet life from real life, collide with internet users who do harbor notions of internet while living life.
      Getting drunk and writing internet messages is one thing, getting drunk and talking about internet is another thing.
      • Apr 5 2014: Now you're just pretending, because nobody could actually be so stupid as to espouse what you claim to espouse.

    Apr 7 2014: I have not watched the videos but you are right in your argument but we are talking now about something that will never be explained appropriately... SO here it is surveillance is a middle management problem you see if something happens it is not the problem of the highest of the highs it is a problem for the middle tiers to address issues or flaws in the system what ever that system may be..

    Lets assume that this is a virtual 3 - dimensional simulation and your RIGHT hand in the OKAY symbol is a reminder of this with a d3. Do this and you will see a small d connected to 3 fingers. If we agree on this then we then can say surveillance is not of any concern because it is not important because this is the only a single step of understanding on the greater understanding of how the world works.

    You see surveillance is a tool used by the parties the can not explain what is happening to them without proof. That is it. No secret organizations no mystery of power NO NOTHING. As for the English society lets assume that this virtual reality simulation is real and they need a single line of code so advanced that it only needs a single small pattern is registered it will then divide up the rest of the pattern and strategically place the other bits of pattern to help find new patterns of understanding... HOPE YOU ARE STILL WITH ME...

    I know nothing in this simulation I only have information that does nothing but show people another option.... Pi the code of life?

    Finding a cipher in pi with only 13 decimals places...

    0112358
    3456__G7
    __9___9
    ___5___

    The G is the Golden ration flipped 01.61803 - 30819.10

    0_____8
    3_____10
    ______9

    Additionally, If numbers are not your thing lets apply some letters...

    A = 1
    B = 2
    C = 3
    D = 4
    E = 5
    F = 6
    G = 7
    H = 8
    O = 0
    O = G

    0 is off and represents one EYE
    G is Good and represents other EYE

    Letter instead of numbers...

    O_____H
    CD____OG
    __I___I
    ___e___

    ie is "that is"

    OH "that is" GOD I C

    Everything is just a step for others...
    • Apr 11 2014: I am synesthetic iow. i see numbers in colour.
      1 wight
      2 black
      3 brown
      4 green
      5 red
      6 brownish- yellow ( like mustard)
      7 dark blue
      8 purple
      9 is the most difficult to define, colours there are always in play: purple green blue, never wight read brown.
      0 transparent, no colours, but thick, nothing , meaning 'no thing' where all is potential, nothing actual.
      10 like water, 11 is very light, unstable...and so on :)
      Numbers also have texture, they can be thick solid, like liquid or airy transparent and everything in between.
      Re : your RIGHT hand in the OKAY symbol is a reminder of this with a d3.
      3 is brown , it's the colour of the soil, yin energy.
      So, number 3 for OK, makes sense for me , it means trust comfort,or symbolises the agreement with the rules of the game, common sense, something like this.
      Letters are more textual then coloured, their image is correlated by sound, but they do have colour correspondences with numbers.
      G = 7, yes, but G is light blue, 7 is dark blue.

      Sounds crazy, i know :)
