I think the bigger point is that the <1000 person towns in BFE, Mississippi themselves are barely hanging on, and are on their way out. Dollar General is just a symptom of the demise of these small towns, not the primary cause.

I think he's making the opposite play, spending his money to improve the world and avert disaster.

    We live in a post-privacy world.

I think a reasonable person riding in a hired car would consider it to be private. This isn't some open-top carriage that is exposed to the world. The fact that this article is even being written demonstrates that this driver's behavior violates social norms.

Prison must be abolished. For this and so many other reasons.

Regardless of whether any of the claims in this article are true, it just goes to show that you can not trust commercial VPN providers. They have no reason to really protect you the way they claim, and time after time they are proven to be lying about that protection.

Only trust a VPN you set up yourself, or a network like Tor, which is designed to not require trusted nodes.

It's even better if you just use F-Droid, full stop. Only use free software that you can trust, not proprietary software from the Play Store.

It certainly isn't. Net Neutrality isn't a Federal regulation, it's a broad principle. It can be voluntarily upheld by ISPs, as it was for decades, or it can be enforce at the state level.

With actual competitive markets for retail Internet access, specific regulations like this wouldn't be necessary, as customers could choose to leave non-neutral providers.

If this news has you looking for an alternative, I recommend checking out some significantly more open source options:

This site is really interesting, but I fear they fall peril to the same biases that most heterodox finance blogs do:

    Mauldin Economics is a member of the Hard Assets Alliance. Buy gold and silver, store in secure vaults, take delivery or sell positions online.

    Check the gold price and the silver price.
