OK, the only country dumb enough to be caught?
but is there any way to share this sort of information electronically
Write it by hand.
Photocopy it on an analog copier, or if you can't find one, use carbon paper.
Send it by post.
Safer than any encrypted email.
And yes, many (most?) other countries work the same way
So, you are saying that the Bahamas records every cell phone call made in the US?
Simultaneously, I'll bet.
In my view, the problem is cultural, not political.
Does this give us a free pass to revolt now?
You need a pass????
Years back, teen pregnancy was very rare. A handful in a state.
Bullshit. It was prolific. Were you born last year?
I know, I was poor. I was unemployed and the 'case workers' at the unemployment office actually told me NOT to look for work and they would 'take care of me.
This stinks as much as the rest of your story. Again, I call bullshit.
Facebook explicitly says they do not allow you to delete your account.
"If you don't think you'll use Facebook again, you can request to have your account permanently deleted. Please keep in mind that you won't be able to reactivate your account or retrieve anything you've added."
Deactivation != Deletion
Why a lack of anonymity is a nightmare to you? Is it because you don't live in a free country and the only way you can express your ideas without going to jail afterward is with anonymity?
Because the idea of someone *else* making money by selling *my* personal data is abhorrent?
If I'm going to sell my emails (etc) at least I should get the money.
Web site owners pour through their logs, and can subscribe to a service that identifies the owner of that IP.
So, they know who has looked at what web pages.
From there, it's pretty easy stuff.
Worldwide, make that (guesstimate) 60,000 planes.
That's a lot of telemetry.
Continuous surveillance of the planet with high-resolution satellites is good!
