It's all in your head, so to speak... There's a reason for everything. And personally I'm scared of the drugs they toss out like candy and waiting a few months to see what happens. They give out anti-psychotics when you might need antibiotics. A true shot in the dark this business, and the doctor's name is Clouseau.

This is nothing like 'the sky is falling' routine. And you never heard me say to surrender. It is only a point of information to act on. It's a simple fact that you are being tracked. And certificates still require a third party. And to me, a self signed certificate is a cookie. To be verified requires that you identify yourself. You can't be anonymous and certified/verified at the same time, unless it's a one-time cert. My only recommendation is to develop something better, not to give up.

that's called corruption

No, it's not. It's called business. That is what government serves. It would be nice if the government served the general population, but nobody demands it. 98% of the voters find the present situation perfectly acceptable. If there is any corruption, it is in the home of those people, nowhere else.
