How To Get Out Of PRISM and Avoid NSA Spying
SiliconAngle ^ | June 12, 2013 | Mike Wheatley

Admittedly, most people don’t seem to give a toss about PRISM one way or the other. But you should, and not just because certain groups claim that the NSA’s spying could be unconstitutional – there are lots of reasons why the alleged complicity of US tech firms could be bad for America, and no one wants to live in an Orwellian Dystopia, which is what could happen if we never take a stand.

So with this in mind, is there any way to avoid the all-encompassing dragnet that the NSA has admitted to running?

You bet there is, and today we’re about to reveal how. Now bear in mind that avoiding PRISM means avoiding those services which allegedly collaborate with the NSA, so it’s going to be a major pain in the beginning – and yet, it’s definitely possible to do. Think of it as a steep learning curve; you can live without Google, Microsoft, Skype et al., but it’ll take some motivation on your part to stick to the plan.

Turn off your cable, your internet, all phones, and all utilities.

Even then, best of luck.

I guess Verizon is “et al”.

Possible, but not realistic.

Now 20 years into the future, Max Headroom was right in predicting the rise of “blanks”.

Sudden dropping off the networks might also be a red flag.

You're missing the point. For starters, their mail recommendation is based in Canada, encrypted so nobody can read it, and claims to not give out your info without a court order. If anything it be one less Obama liberal loving sleaze bag company like Yahoo that I will have to deal with and it will slow them down a bit. There are other tips as well.

The idea isn’t to drop out. It is just a few ideas to increase privacy.

The only secure computer/user is the computer that is not plugged in to a network and has no wi-fi or other emanations.

Lucky me. Today Microsoft combined all the data they’ve been storing on me, and created one big clusterfuck of a profile. They combined it with all the data Google has. So now, everything I do on the Internet is conveniently located on my Outlook home page. Even the spreadsheets I created in Microsoft Excel to track my husband’s medical condition after his stroke somehow found their way from a computer that crashed four years ago. There they are, on my email homepage, ready to click, read and edit. How lovely!
