Apologies for the mild distraction from everyday here, but I thought this fellow did a good job of connecting all the dots. Somethings that might have been dismissed as "mild paranoia" a few short years ago seem to now be reasonably concerning. I've always suspected that email and texts never completely went away, so combine that with all of the data your smartphone provides Big Tech and you can see why this fellow is so worked up. If you have children, you might let them see this to, hopefully, inform them of the downside of social websites and other forms of internet traffic. It would seem that it's not just "innocent fun" anymore. Social media scores are clearly on their way (if they aren't largely here already). Privacy and forgiveness of past indiscretions (youthful or otherwise) are becoming rare commodities. It's something of a blessing to be an old guy now, eh?
Nothing is fair about selective use of today’s “standards” on actions based on what happened 10, 20, 50 or 100 years ago. And when you can take things out of context or do just selective bits of information like half a sentence without the rest of the sentence or without any clue what the entire conversation was about your judgement becomes subjective at best and total nonsense at worse.
50 years ago rape was a capital crime in many states. Today murder is not even one and rape has been downgraded to what seems like a very moderate offense. But hate speech is now a hate crime when 50 years ago it was not a crime at all. I’d rather have the old standards than the new ones.
