Why no one cares about online privacy or government surveillance? At least not enough? Why are people not concerned about businesses and governments tracking their every step? Hearmy advice to privacy advocates that I compiled based on my experience.
Care about government surveillance!

After finishing this video on why I think nobody cares about privacy, I noticed that there could be someone who would hear my message as criticism of privacy advocates. But that's exact opposite of my intent. I am join privacy advocacy every day, and I just want to share my experience I've had with other activists, and I'd like to advise fellow privacy advocates to avoid those mistakes I saw other activists make.
In this video I share some privacy arguments against mass surveillance, bulk collection and corporate spying.
#1 Don’t be like vegans.
Don’t expect people to turn full Richard Stallman after you had a conversation with them.
If you are privacy activist and see an asshole like this, don’t align yourself with unless they cool their head.
#2 Don’t expect everybody to be uniformly informed
People have different priorities and rightfully so. Some people have multiple jobs and struggle live salary to salary. They’ve got enough of their daily struggles and they don’t have any energy left to pay attention to other stuff (like protecting their privacy and fighting for digital rights). Not everybody can care about government survaillance.
#3 Legal battle is more important than user awareness
Even if we persuade all people to VPN-up, use encrypted services, and ditch big brother altogether, we still lose because the legal loopholes will still be there to prevent such a scenario from taking place. Digital communication needs to be protected the same way as physical.
Your private emails and messages should be private and not even providers of those services should be allowed to attempt to access them and capitalize on their content.
#4 Filter out conspiracies
But additional unproven conspiracy theories just deligitimize all the effort of those who try to point to the already proven existing problems.
#5 The liberty argument works
People might trust their government now, but they can’t rule out that the power will always attempt to turn against them.
Every government activity we accept today sets precedence for future to build blocks upon blocks of abuse on top of it.
We really are approaching a state where it won’t be possible at all to live without having the prying eyes on you every second of your life wherever you are.
#6 Learn and explain bureaucratic politics
Every branch of government competes for public resources.
