Exposed and Under Assault

Naked and exposed. Freedom of expression is under assault.  My opinion, if not your opinion, may be subject to actions that attempt to suppress.  Intolerance of a viewpoint, however benign or offensive, is subject to outrage.  Implicit violence, doxing, bullying, shaming and so forth.  Ignorance often times is the companion of the extreme expressions.  The ignorance of incomplete information or the parroting of misinformation of others contributes to conflict.  How is it that a passionate ill informed position, even if held by many, merits consideration?

There is a time for exposure and a time for privacy.  The choice should always be yours.  We now realize that our privacy is also under assault.  Our digital experience is being ruthlessly surveilled by any app we use, any website we visit, any smartphone we carry.  Encryption, disinformation and stealth systems are your very best protections.  All of who you are need not be exposed and assaulted.
