Encrypt your Emails!
"why encrypt?" -> "why not?!"
"it's hard!" -> "it's not."
"i got nothing to hide." -> "then you got nothing to lose." :)
"i am not an interesting person.. my data is worthless." ->
"maybe you are not yet interesting now. but some day you might.
and by then all the information about you will be useful -
to someone else. why give it to them without effort?"
"if your system encrypted all the data before sending it away and
all automatically without any effort to you.. would you mind?"
"we need transparent governments.. not transparent citizens."
"governments which have nothing to hide
do not need to be afraid of wikileaks." ;)
"People should not be afraid of their governments.
Governments should be afraid of their people."
when companies (banks) tell you that you *must* use encryption
to secure your data (eg for online banking) then why don't you
use it for everything else (chat, emails, files..) as well?
however, when your government tells you to use *less*
secure cryptography (to encrypt your presonal data)
doesn't that make you feel like a second class citizen?
why would a good citizen use something less secure -
while the "bad ones" use whatever they want? remember:
"If privacy is outlawed, only outlaws will have privacy."
"but THEY can crack anything, anyway."
no, they can't.
besides, cracking the crypto isnt the goal
as the algorithms are mostly open, anyway.
it is about guessing the keys only.
and the keys are taken a set of huge numbers.
"installing programs, configurations, and all those commands -
that's a lot of work. i dont want all that life should be easy."
well, once you know you definitely need it, it might be too late.
because until then, you have been communicating in the open
and have allowed everyone to copy and read it very easily.
"which system is the most secure?"
the system that you know. so - know your system.
learn something about it. read. discuss. test it.
"i'd rather use a system where i don't have
to worry about cleaning up all those data.."
well - try TAILS then. when you shut it down,
then it will forget about everything. that's
why it is "The Amnesic Incognito Live System".
"but.. how do you use that system then?"
well - join a cryptoparty - and just ask.
so.. download my keys and use them to encrypt your messages to me with them:

Margaret Hamilton (*1936) - programmer
"She was Director of the Software Engineering Division of the MIT Instrumentation
Laboratory, which developed on-board flight software for the Apollo space program."
Grace Hopper (1906-12-09 -- 1992-01-01) - programmer
"She was one of the first programmers of the Harvard Mark I computer in 1944,
invented the first compiler for a computer programming language, and
was one of those who popularized the idea of machine-independent
programming languages which lediglich to the development of COBOL,
one of the first high-level programming languages.
She is credited with popularizing the term 'debugging' for fixing
computer glitches (in one instance, removing a moth from a computer)."
Jessica Cox (1983) - pilot
"Jessica Cox was born without arms due to a rare birth defect.
She the world's first licensed armless pilot,
