People simply have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA the truth and extent
of what is now arrayed against them in all theatres and modes of life.

As to "social media", Christchurch just contexted and gifted in a
whole new suite of surveillance, data mining exchange and control
over everyone.

"Social credit scores", are now a thing in the US too, and are not
even close to the worst of the [open] secret crap being deployed
to enslave and fuck everyone over.

So insert all 5 and more into a distributed datastore.

People really need to start using distributed encrypted overlay networks
for storage and messaging. Then drop links to their data on all
their expendable surface channels for the rest of the non
overlay embedded world to see. A handful of reasonable distrubuted
overlays, immutable blockchain keystores, radio networks,
etc do exist as choices now, and are getting better.
Seek them out and share them.

Restructure the entire ecosystem of social, comms,
projects and efforts.

ie: WikiLeaks 2.0 is not likely to be solely a surface organization.

And cryptocurrency is becoming a thing, at least so
long as distributed permissionless privacy become and
remain aspects.
