I still remember the ancient advertisements on my mom's TV (about 100 years ago) "CRAZY EDDIE IS GIVING IT ALL AWAY !!!" -- Crazy Eddie was a deep discounter in New York City. Well folks, let face it, WE ARE GIVING IT ALL AWAY !!!"
REGARDING OUR PERSONAL LIBERTIES. OUR FREEDOMS OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION, AND OUR RIGHTS TO NOETIC EQUITY -- just how hard would it be for us to begin RESISTING our pathetic habit of GIVING IT ALL AWAY ??? Well, in all honesty, it would be dirt simple !!! You, right now, could launch a painless, 100% politically safe little resistance, with the expenditure of a minuscule amount of effort. Show the bitches and bastards that you have a little backbone (or at least a primitive notochord): Please do the following:
Just mosey on over to this SourceForge web site:
Then simply download the AxCrypt encryption program! Just do it !!!
And from now on, whenever you send an e-mail, make sure to tack on an encrypted AxCrypt ".axx" attachment file. You can use a zip compression program to compress the file first, if you like. You should use a simple encryption code (key) about six characters long, which you can choose or not choose to divulge to your recipients.
There is little or (really) no chance that the (.axx) extension will be seized by some odd program and cause a malware program to execute. If you worry about which programs execute when files bearing odd extensions are opened, consider obtaining the "OpenExpert" program at:
You can use this program to check on which programs execute when files bearing various on extensions (e.g. "Program.???") are opened. It's a slow download -- you may need "Free Download Manager":
If everybody simply encrypts a little something (like say, this diary) and attaches the resulting ".axx" file to most of their e-mails, our beloved, ever trustworthy government will never be able to afford enough supercomputers to decrypt them all, and we will all enjoy significantly enhanced freedom of privacy. This is a case of "USE IT OR LOSE IT" !!!
Below, I have included two very short comments that should wake a few people up to the dire threat to our freedoms of association and privacy that are amarching to our very doorsteps (and laptops) presently.
