5, 10, 20 years out? Good luck avoiding the all seeing eye. You can attempt by deleting your socials (or at a minimum stop using them). And how many of the sheep are going to do that? The point of social media is to make you the product. When you get a free service, you are the product. I understand this may be a fringe viewpoint, and that I am biased on this particular view. But the fact still remains, for example, if you use Facebook, your payment for their service is YOU – YOU are the product.

The elite radical socialists are working with the government, big tech, and large corporations to monitor you in as many ways as possible (religious viewpoint, political viewpoint, purchasing history, contacts, etc). Yes it may not be a human being, but our robot overlords will start reporting you to the elite humans in charge of these systems. It will start as just selling you out as a consumer, but under the right dictate, it will turn into a slavery so pervasive that Hitler’s secret police state will look like child’s play. Thank you Jordan for your hard work to make this information known to the American public. So many people are unaware, think this is alarmist, or that it can’t be beaten, regulated, or avoided. I believe that is incorrect, but if the status quo continues, under the right dictate, the elite radical socialists will enslave you the second they have the chance.

The elites want to be able to predict your behavior before you act. If they can do that, they can manipulate you in subtle ways that can and will promote actual ideological changes in you. Don’t let them win. Stay on guard. Stand up for what you believe in, be strong and courageous.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

I can’t say it better than Peterson, so I’ll let him wrap it up for me.

Dunbar, who teaches at Oxford University, is famous for “Dunbar’s number,” which estimates that people can only maintain about 150 stable social relationships – he suggests we simply don’t have the emotional energy to keep in touch with more people than that.

And here is some random food for thought:

Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered.

Hebrews 8:5 (ESV)

If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.

John 15: 18-20 (ESV)

As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” And Jesus[g] said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Yet another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

Luke 9: 57-62 (ESV)

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

Matthew 16: 24-26

But I don’t want to end on a negative.

Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life.

Revelation 2:10 (ESV)
