In My opinion is that most of the world has gone to hell in a handbag. There's more corruption then ever before. We are losing liberty's for temporary safety and security. We need to heed the words and warning of one of our founding Fathers "Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." Or another variant "Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both." We're all moving like a high speed train headed at a slow bend and doing nothing about it. All the time holding hope that our Democratic train stays on the tracks and In doing so we're heading straight at becoming a police state all while talking on a cell phone. if something isn't done then its going to be bad news for everyone. Unfortunately the longer it takes the worse it will be for everybody.

IPv6 that's really not gonna help with privacy especially when they have backdoor access to your router because they compromised it before it left the factory maybe before the board was even built and theres other reasons too but I don't want to even go there. The biggest question is do you trust your hardware vendors, chip makers and so on and so forth. If hardware is insecure then what does the security implemented in or by software going to really matter.
