Leading Scientist Warns Youths About Online Privacy Using Orwell’s 1984 As An Example of Our Totalitarian Future

book 1984

Professor Noel Sharkey’s talk at a science festival in Britain is a reminder that we lose our privacy when we use Google and Facebook. Thus, it may be smart to avoid Fakebook entirely, while doing Internet searches using Duckduckgo, startpage, or ixquick. This website, for example, has no Fakebook account.

There’s still the NSA to worry about though. The corrupt, lying US government with its New World Order Illuminati agenda can directly monitor our computer and telephone use. Hell, the US government was invading the privacy of world leaders, a fact they were not too happy about.

But the world’s youth need to read Orwell’s 1984 and wake up to the soft totalitarianism that portends a mean, nasty, deadly future hard totalitarianism.

Sabotage Google, Facebook, and an instrusive government by starving all these beasts of your time and money.

Young people too willingly surrender their privacy to Google and Facebook, a leading scientist warned yesterday.

Noel Sharkey, a professor of artificial intelligence and robotics at Sheffield University, said that older people were more cautious with their personal data.

Addressing the Cheltenham Science Festival, he said: ‘I’m 65, I don’t want to be targeted. I am very uncomfortable with it. It seems to me our privacy is gradually being violated and eroded without us noticing.

‘I am part of the generation which all read 1984 – I think we are less happy about giving up our privacy.

‘But the younger generation aren’t really thinking about it. The services that Google and Facebook give us are so good that people are willing to trade off their privacy for them.’

He said Google’s recording of all our online activities meant it knew far too much about us.
