    About the bad parts of (computer) technology,
    Technology is bad if you are a heavy consumer of it (social media stuff, drama, videogames, videos, live streams, …)
    Technology might be good if you produce something with it (programming, documentation, repairing, …)

    I just like the "produce > consume" heuristic in general.

    I used to sit in front of my pc every waking hour as i grew up, mainly playing warcraft and other mmo type shit. I gradually became this man in the video, if you are true with yourself and you do not backwards rationalize you will become a solid person who can actually form opinions and critically think.

    Technology is like anything else, you take the good stuff for yourself and throw everything else out. Just do what is good for you. You can do most things without letting them be bad for you.

    What younger generations get less and less is a framework like social constructs, culture, politics or religion. Realise that you can design your framework however you please, you don't have to follow the existing roads. Or you can become a nihilist.

    Okay, for starters, these two examples aren't even remotely comparable in terms of what's actually being attacked (or at least you should be attacking). In neither case is it a simple troll point. These points demonstrate legitimate problems with either their ideology, or their strategy and rhetoric.

    The problem with these "communists" isn't that they're hypocrites. It's that they're liars. Most of the "communists" with their iCrap and Starbucks coffee aren't actually communists (forgetting that most attempts at communism just end up doing state capitalism for a moment). You are, I shit you not, probably further left than most of the Bay Area "commies" are in practice. So this isn't a troll point, it is a legitimate point against them, it's highlighting the fact that most of these so called "marxists" are actually corporate toadies, who support massive right wing power structures.

    They do this because, due to separation of power, democracy, the constitution, etc, they can't gain the kind of authoritarian power they desire through government. They CAN however gain this power through the private market, due to over 40 years of right wing, free market policy screwnig up our country's balance of power. In summary, these people are parasitic authoritarian right wingers who rode in on the coat tails of the other, more recognizable authoritarian right, capitalizing on the policy that was enacted under people like Nixon and Reagan, and yes, Clinton (who in some ways was to the right of Reagan).

    Their entire ideology is deep fried in Orwellian concepts, most notably blackwhite and doublethink. Whether it's intentional or not, it functions as misdirection away from what they've become. What they actually are. It's self mis-identification for the sake of political power games. They TALK like marxists, but ACT like they're part of the god damn East India Company. It's a massive, ideological, post-modern shell game.

    With the libertarians, it's simpler, and it IS a case of simple hypocrisy, but it goes in two different directions: Libertarians, are either basic hypocrites or closet ancaps at any given time, depending on who is currently jerking their chain. If they're around ancaps or anyone right of them, you'll be lucky if you hear them even placidly support something as basic as government funded roads. And they will ALWAYS go further right if an ancap jerks their ideological chain.

    On the other hand, if they're around people who aren't ideological nutjobs, a sense of shame (but with no real awareness of their error) takes over, and they will make arbitrary exceptions for specific government services they personally like, and then proceed to engage in a massive amount of cognitive dissonance and sophistry to justify how it's somehow magically different than all the other things their dogma tells them they should be against.

    The problem with ideology and policy is that it unavoidably has moral consequences, and this can and will drive people to lie to avoid facing the immorality of their beliefs and actions. Lie not just to other people, but frequently to themselves. Being aware of information and power games, especially in this post-modern era we live in, is extremely important.

    Exactly what I've been doing. My parents were very poor, so I started life from 0. I've been programming professionally for 6 years now and saving up whatever I can. Probably 10 more years before I can buy my own house and have enough saved up to also start my own company, but after that I'll only do things I've been meaning to do. Small price to pay for my independence until the end of my life.

    2:00 Libertarians believe in the myth of authority and participate in the Cult of Statism just like any other partisan. They would have no problem being robbed with the threat of violence to fund the construction of a road instead of paying a toll or some other natural way of funding it.

    From a 3rd world country too. I have this 2GB ram laptop I try to do CTFs and learn reversing on not-so-heavy-but-tricky programs, so I have skills when I get job and buy those consoles. My desire to live in cities, have car, gadgets, enjoy video games, all is gone, I love computers, music and art though, hoping for situation to improve, I will probably do same xD I like reversing, but also cooking, and all, won't regret being away from all leisure and luxuries

    Technology is one of the two main selling propositions of the human species, the other being language:

    We create and use tools
    We build societies
    We communicate with language
    With language, first spoken and then written, we build cultures and civilisations that last beyond the current generation

    As William Gibson said, we are on a million year project that we cannot get away from.

    These days i've started thinking again about the consequences of technology. Technology and computers will always be an hobby for me, but i started being more aware about what internet/3W became in the time: watching Serial Experiments Lain the first time made me think a lot about internet (and the author predicted what would have become), then i read "Why the future doesn't need us" from Bill Joy (contributed to BSD, and founded Sun Microsystems) where he talks about risks of pushing development of technology too far (he reflected also about the essay of Kazcynski) and when we should stop (so, ask ourselves if it's worth investing in a technology and which consequences could have), and these days i listened to lessons about Cyber-Security (in particular IT law in Italy) where learnt about the impact of technology today and how we are going to rely on it, and why we are at risk (attackers are more advantaged than defenders).
    I can also say that Ken Thompson (God itself and father of UNIX) talked about interesting things: trusting trust attacks (backdoors that are very hard to detect, and backdoors that are hidden and nobody knows of. Famous his phrase: "You cannot trust programs you didn't create yourself"), the rise of cloud computing ("operating systems will disappear for how bad they're maintained… the future will be a screen shipped over a wire") and concerns about it, the growth of complexity in computing.
    I realized that people today have access to very powerful tools, and they can use them without little knowledge (user-friendliness is what actually enables them, even little kids and monkeys would be able to use a smartphone) and do harmful things to themselves and others. I still think that technology is neutral, and it's something that can be used to make our life easier or make it harder and hurt ourselves.

    I don’t get getting independent as a life goal. Why? You don’t have to be independent to grow your kids. Being independent is actually bad if e.g. you want to get to Mars, make humans multi-planet species. I will say even more, commitment and dependency on something sometimes makes you more powerful and more effective. Imagine being dependent on global stock markets and not having to work anymore, such a bad thing, right? Is it better to grow your own food, kill chickens once in a while?

    I think this is the best advice/maxim for living: "choose that which makes you less dependent". Sadly becoming increasingly hard not to be assimilated by the machine, but it is the fight most worth fighting nonetheless.

    I don't see a solution out of online gambling through games other than government banning it, I don't see gambling going away at all unless the government stops it. It's so everpresent for some people, and they suffer because they're addicts. But I do buy into the idea that we'll get web 3.0 no matter what the government does or doesn't do.

    It's like with MySpace. Any form of de-facto censorship aside, a lot of people eventually got bored of the popular sites. Like Facebook and Twitter, something else will come along and replace them at some point.
    I also want to further point out that technology in and of itself isn't bad. It's the intent of the person using it that truly matters in the end.

    I think that the biggest threat to personal freedom is the cloud. We need decentralized computing. It must be voluntary and allow the user to charge another for the use of his resources. Plan9 didn't go far enough.

    We need to code things using object capabilities so that security is enforced from the lowest level all the way up.
