Why it is OK to Lie (to the Machine)

• Rob Braxman Tech -

Is lying on the Internet acceptable? We will discuss how our honesty is used against us by various threats like doxxers, criminals, and Big tech social media. Lying is considered a moral issue that we are all bound to reject. Do you feel guilt when you lie?

Yet we will discuss how lying is not a black and white issue and how it is necessary to lie in social media, on the Internet. Lying is an essential element to our Internet privacy.

Can you distinguish between lying to people vs lying to the machine? If not then Big Tech has won. Have no guilt when lying to the machine.

In other videos, I would refer to this approach with the more technical term "disinformation". In this video, I've dumbed it down to what it really is, which is to learn to lie to Big Tech.
