Ok, I’m facing a moral dilemma here. Trump’s going to force Google to ban TikTok from the US Playstore on Sunday. I’m pretty sure that I could cobble together a quick and dirty region free apk downloader for this one app.

So, what’s worse? Not standing up to censorship or being instrumental in helping to turn kids into social media addicts?

Offline, you’d…

  • Hang curtains on your windows
  • Stop people from going through your trash
  • Lock your front door
  • Not share your bank statements with strangers

So why is it so fucking hard for people to understand that their online privacy matters, too even more?

I'm not a big fan of Paypal. Unfortunately, I'm pretty much forced to do business with them. Having to deal with Libra as well, would be even worse.
