In reply to comment: the great thing about this is (see in situ)

Well, yes, but...

Okay - it's voluntary. Fine. But it's also becoming an essential. Many people carry a Smartphone for work and are expected to use it. More and more, utilization of technology will become intrinsically connected to our basic every day activities.

Think about it. Everyone drives a car. Sure, you can still walk, run, bicycle, or ride a horse, but you are very limited in your transportation if those are your only options. Cars have become so intrinsically connected to our lives that to live without the technology puts you at a severe disadvantage to everyone around you (in America at least). Cars are really still just a luxury and you can technically still live without them - however you shouldn't have to for the sake of your liberty. Smartphones are still a luxury - and a newer one that is easier to live without than cars... for now.

I mean, the internet from you computer is also voluntary, but that doesn't (shouldn't) mean you have to give up all your privacy to your ISP & through them the government just because you surf at home. This must be handled on a legal level in order to protect our freedom.

"For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God."
(1 Peter 2:15-16)
