At the risk of sounding left of left, which only a few decades ago was center, I have a couple of issues that are troubling me. The twenty something generation, two of which I am responsible for, has grown up in a culture of endless war. As most kids develop, they start to become aware of society in general at about ten years old, so if you were born in, say 1992, as you reach your twenty first birthday you cannot remember a time when your country wasn't somewhere fighting someone. Peace would seem an odd thing indeed. Add to the fact there is no individual forced involvement with these wars (draft) it's not something kids give much thought to. The only kids aware of our endless war are the ones that can't find work and join the military or are persuaded to join with glamorous marketing images implying warfare is like your favorite video game. Once in, our Faustian military policy makers employ what is referred to as "the back door draft", meaning multiple

TIP! Easy Way to Prevent Facebook TrackingFacebook surveils everyone's web browsing regardless of whether they have an account or not, as described in this paper: http://ssrn.com/abstract=1717563More Like This
A simple way to prevent any packets being sent to or received from Facebook is to set up filtering using iptables. On most GNU and Linux distributions, you can run the following three commands as root:
iptables -A INPUT -d facebook.com -j DROP
iptables -A OUTPUT -d facebook.com -j DROP
iptables -A FORWARD -d facebook.com -j DROP
The URL can be changed for other sites as well if you wish. Eg - for Twitter's "tweet" buttons run the same commands but using platform.twitter.com as the domain to reject.
For more documentation on iptables, I recommend the Arch Wiki - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Iptables
Suicide Awareness DayHello everyone.More Like This
I'm writing this journal today to inform you all that today, 9/10/2012, is Suicide Awareness Day. If you or anyone you know has ever thought of or been successful in committing suicide, please wear yellow and/or write "love" on your arm to show your support and love for your friends and family. No one should feel the need to take their own life. Let's show them that they are loved.
You can submit any related deviations to the "TWOLHA, Hurt, Self-Harm" folder.
Thank you for the support.
