recently received an e-mail from a reader of Live Not By Lies who said that the book was saying exactly what needed to be said right now, in this extraordinary moment for traditional Christians and political conservatives. I would have normally thanked him, and let that be that, but this was no ordinary reader. This was from an experienced military intelligence officer, now retired. Lieutenant Colonel (USA, Ret) Alexander Braszko served the country for 22 years as a Military Intelligence and Space Operations officer. He has extensive experience integrating space, cyberspace and information operations capabilities into Army and Joint operations. He deployed to South Korea, Kosovo, and Iraq during his career. After leaving the Army, he became Kansas City, Missouri’s Chief Innovation Officer, where he used his insights into emerging technologies to improve municipal operations. He helped create an Emerging Technology Board in the city, charged with fostering a system of collaboration between city departments, law enforcement, and community representatives on controversial emerging technology initiatives including ShotSpotter, facial recognition software, autonomous drones, and autonomous vehicles.
In other words, the man knows what he’s talking about. He’s also a practicing Orthodox Christian, husband and father to 5 children, and describes himself as “an ardent supporter of data privacy and preserving our Constitutional freedoms.”

“Can you live without Facebook? Great, get rid of it! Can you live without Twitter? Great, get rid of it. Do you have to use Amazon or for a little extra inconvenience can you support local businesses? Great, then get rid of or limit your Amazon purchases and buy local.”
and pay cash when buying locally. Big Bro tracks you by your purchases when paying by card. I probably used my debit card a maximum 5 times last year at the local stores.
This is very basic stuff.
Hopefully it is already well known to all Freepers.
My grandparents’ story is somewhat similar. In their case there were rumors that the Czar’s horse-men were going to kill everyone in the village.
Some people had “normalcy bias” and laughed at the “crazy conspiracy theories”.
Some people were “paranoid” and “fearful” and fled the village—all the way across Europe and to the United States where they started with nothing but the clothes on their back.
The “normal” folks got slaughtered.
The “paranoid” folks lived to have children and grand-children, and that is why I am alive today—and a paranoid conspiracy theorist!

Rod Dreher has long been an “off the grid” type...and it comes across as charmingly old-fashioned that he actually thinks anybody now is or can be “off the grid.”
Plus, “they” already know so much about you - and your family, your friends, probably your dog’s veterinarian - that thinking you’re going to erase or hide your identity is extremely naive.
The point is that there’s probably no way you can escape surveillance and nowhere you can go. So the only option is to fight back.
Go public with every abuse they commit, sue when you can, insist on maintaining a political presence (I love Pres. Trump’s new office!), try to stay in touch with like minded people, and be prepared to spend the rest of your life fighting for your legal rights. At some point, the tide will turn because it always turns in favor of freedom.
But thinking you can run away and erase yourself from their databases is futile with modern technology.
All of these things have both good uses and bad uses. The problem was that we didn’t halt the bad uses in time, and some of them were also snuck in under false pretenses (security, etc.), and now they’re established. So we have to figure out how to deal with this.
That said, there is one thing that I avoid, which is enabling electronic listening on phones and computers (Alexa, etc.) - or even on newer electronic kitchen appliances. However, they’re probably listening anyway, so you should just assume that. I simply don’t like having them chime in unexpectedly.
Very suspicious, you using your card only five times a year. Not using Amazon? Well, that is just un-unifying and anti-social.
That kind of behavior probably gets you put on a list of possible domestic terrorists.

So Swalwell will have future relations problems with Fang Fang?
Read they book. Just don't buy it from Amazon.
Very good interview. Thanks.
I despise Bozos, but the fact remains that many of us do not live in urban areas with plenty of local stores to buy from.
Swalwell used his Fang Wang to Fang Bang, Fang Fang.
