Internet Security Tips for Activists

Indivisible members, this resource is being shared anonymously for our mutual information and protection. It is written by one of our members who invites us to share freely with other groups and individuals as needed.

In what follows, I differentiate between “casual” attacks and “directed” attacks. A casual attack is when you and a million other people receive malware via email, or are swept into a data theft from someone’s mailing list. A directed attack is when someone is attempting to gain access to your information, personally, either because of who you are or because of an organization you’re affiliated with.

Seeing things clearly

As these nightmarish Trumpian weeks unfold around us, with their daily parade of insults, lies, and abuses piling up around America’s ankles, an ugly picture is emerging.

It’s not just Trump being Trump. The man himself has no ideology or aims. He’s merely the mirror to our own worst impulses, dutifully reflecting America’s basest instincts: greed, lust, a seething bottomless pit of ego devouring itself. Continue reading “Seeing things clearly”

Roots for resistance

Let’s examine the lowly root. Roots anchor. Roots collect and store nutrients. Roots sustain. Roots are the unseen masses, without which even the most stately trees cannot thrive.

It’s time for progressives to put down roots. Voter registration and empowerment are an important start. Interstate Crosscheck has got to go (see also Project Vote and The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. ) Vote by mail needs boosting, and the electorate must demand examination of The United States voting process. The meta issue, however, is choice: Who can the newly registered and reinstated turn to for just and responsive representation?

You. Continue reading “Roots for resistance”
