Never give in! But, in order to not look "odd" to your fellow techno-slaves, it might be wise to stop bringing up the subject with them. Don't let them know you're a privacy rebel, so you aren't labeled as a dissident. Keep those feelings to yourself, but keep using cash, keep staying away from Facebook, keep using that "stupid-phone".
I'm wondering if I should continue to share my feelings of surveillance fear with those folks who just don't get it. I don't want them to "out" me, if they think I'm up to something just because I don't buy into the lifestyle of being connected to everything, all the time.
Thank you! that worked.
