I remember reading his story with great interest from #FreeKevin campaign to 2600 publishing, documentaries, his "Ghost In the Wire" / Art of Invisibility books,.
And Shimomura on his trail. It felt bigger than life

Had no idea he was not well. Was a bit of a shock at his age. RIP Kevin. You made your mark. 💔

Quote: “Private equity is like the system on steroids,” said Sherry Glied, the dean of the Wagner School of Public Service at New York University. “Every time there’s an opportunity for making money, P.E. is going to move faster than everyone else. And consolidation is the way to do that.”
It's not about providing "better care" as I'm sure the spokesperson is touting. 🙄
Reply to comment by righttoprivacy in Macron's call to 'cut off' social media during riots sparks backlash in France by Rambler
And like, I get it to a degree. Sure, there are some shitty people online. And sure, some hide behind anonymity.
And there are also people who just don't want giant corporations harvesting data about them or who wish to keep their government out of their daily life, even when doing nothing at all wrong. And for them, there are people that all fall in between or wish to have privacy for various other reasons.
It's bizarre to me that wanting privacy can even ever be considered controversial. No one thinks that because you put up a privacy fence on your property that you're now running a automobile chop-shop or operating a meth lab in the back yard, now that the neighbors and passersby can't see in. Not sure why people assume the worse when people want digital privacy, as well. No one would demand all houses remove privacy fences so everyone can see their yards, which I think can be sort of an apt comparison to digital privacy.

speaking of which, 2 weeks before election, Macron actually campaigned against anonymity online: “In a democratic society, there should be no anonymity. You can’t walk around in the street wearing a hood. On the Internet, people allow themselves, because they are hooded behind a pseudonym, to say the worst abjections”
Reply to comment by z3d in Russia says rebel Wagner chief will move to Belarus, all pardoned by z3d
(as someone admittedly not familiar with Russian politics) I agree his days are likely numbered.
To save face, if nothing else.

With most of the soldiers in the war zone, around 10,000 reservists protecting the capital, and very little resistance to the Wagner convoy en route to Moscow, Prigozhin could have made things very ugly for Putin, though it's unlikely he would have captured Moscow for very long, and more than likely that his forces would ultimately have been annihilated.
The more interesting question is why Putin decided to grant him and his forces amnesty. Some suggest Prigozhin retains significant kompromat on Putin and the ruling elite, others suggest that the hero status of Wagner, portrayed in the Russian media until recently, kept him safe.
Whatever the reason for the stay of execution, Prigozhin's days are likely numbered. When he's been totally erased from the collective consciousness of mother Russia, he may just receive a visit from Mr. Novichok or Dr. Polonium.

Personal belief: strategic false flag. I feel it highly unlikely they truly ever planned to "take over Russia". That is most laughable to hear some people believe this - if I'm wrong, howso? I'd like to know what others think.
IMO Putin likely wanted to move his chess pieces into position, while creating confusion.

Absolutely vital to stand up for publishers of journalism: precedents like this only put dedicated journalists in fear.
An honest media would stand up for whistleblowers, publishers.

I have loved Dean Koontz since the 1980's, despite the fact that he uses the same formula in every book. I am glad to see he is still writing.

It's both useful and manipulative. Academic rigor and critical thinking don't just spring from facebook, they need to be learnt slowly and carefully.

Pigs curate all the exit nodes themselves, but sometimes not thoroughly enough. Yes, it is intimidation action, but targeted on their pets first, rather than at general public.
Reply to Why men are hard to help by smallpond
Mass education is not help, it's a brainwashing tool, it's purpose is to violate, rape young minds and bodies into conformity. Healthy men don't like being raped. Women do, because enjoying or at least tolerating rape had evolutionary benefit for their ancestors.

Deport all Vietnamese out of Japan. They are extremely dirty people. Just search on Duckduckgo.com/Bing.com/search.Yahoo.com with keywords "Vietnamese stealing in Japan", "Vietnamese are thief", "Vietnamese pickpocket", "Vietnamese are rude", "Vietnamese are scammers", you will be surprised. But my experience is limited
So, you don't like Vietnamese people... personally I've always found them hardworking, intelligent and friendly, but my experience is limited.

Tor and I2P are useless when you can see every message pass from hop to hop on the global level anyway, why do they keep doing this shit? It must be a power thing. To show everyone not to try to fuck with them, even though it won't work

They've even managed to convince some people that lies and rape don't exist, but if they do exist they're good things.

In other news, people who stand to make a lot of money from lies and rape are all about covering up the fact they are lying and raping.
