There are people here who are posting opinions and facts here. You did not respond to the opinions and facts posted here. Instead, you avoided what was posted here and made personal attacks against people who are not here and who cannot respond.
That's pretty safe, isn't it? You don't have to provide facts, you don't have to express an opinion about what was said here and defend it.
As I said in the beginning - that isn't very responsive to the discussion here by people here is it?
Why is this stupid article even considered news? Someone will always predict the End of Civilization as We Know It when new technology disrupts the old, Right Way to Do Things, technology.
And they are always wrong. Things change. Deal with it.
(Protip: The destruction of the middle class has nothing to do with the Internet).
Answer this question: Is there any data that you want to be **completely unavailable** to law enforcement with **proper warrant**?
Definitely! There are protections, or used to be, that made certain information totally off limits to law enforcement no matter what kind of "proper warrant" they might have. One example: conversations between husband and wife.
In your world, there would be no such protections.
Our military and law enforcement absolutely must be able to use all means to catch the bad guys.
So now everybody is a "bad guy" - and the military and law enforcement can do anything to us?
It is important, very, very important that we keep in mind that you can't "catch the bad guys" if you become the bad guys. If the military and law enforcement break the law to gather information, then they are the bad guys!
Now that my kids are all grown, there really isn't any reason to continue that. I love the time and getting together, but the whole decoration and gift-giving is for children - to continue the "magic".
I tell everyone, "If I want something, I'll buy it. If I haven't bought it, I don't want it." This relieves everyone the agony of trying to figure out what to buy me. I opt out of the crass commercialization and save everyone some time and money.
That being said, I look forward to making the time magical for any grandkids.
From that, they claim there are absolutely zero health benefits from supplements.
That just doesn't follow. There is a huge area outside of "cardiovascular disease, cancer, cognitive function and 'mortality'" that could come under "better health".
Talk about drawing vast, generalized conclusions from narrowly defined studies.
