% Never use a mobile phone! Your freedom depends on it % Leah Rowe % 2019-04-28
For background on my underlying philosophy in this regard, read the Matrix article on the hidden wiki in Tor Browser. It's a very good read. You should, for your own sake, escape the Matrix and resist it with everything that you have.
NOTE TO SELF: I should also write an article about resisting censorship, surveillance etc.
The TL;DR if you didn't follow the above advice:
Mobile phones are the ultimate control device used by the Matrix to direct its subjects. You should get rid of your phone immediately. DO IT RIGHT NOW.
Some quick tips on how to not own a mobile phone:
Basically, live the way your parents lived. Actually, nowadays we live in a world where some parents actually used mobile phones during their upbringing, so to be careful I will say grandparents instead of parents, or basically anyone who is at least 50 years old at this present time and date of 2019-05-08.
I don't have one :) I don't need one!
As of 8 May 2019, I have once again become phoneless after a brief (3 year) lapse of judgement.
I grew up without mobile phones (hell, I grew up without internet. I first got online in my teen years). I know the dewey decimal system used in libraries. I can memorize a phone number. I maintain eye contact when talking to you. Even when I used a mobile phone for a brief few years, I never used it the way most people do; I only used it in emergencies, or basically my mother / roommate would call me. or a supplier would text me, etc (business partner). Well, all I need is email.
Here is my history of mobile phone usage:
During the last few years I used an Android phone. I barely knew how to use Android (I still don't). Well, I mainly used it just for phone calls, but like, I didn't even use basic features like the address book most of the time. I just remembered numbers in my head. I'm good at remembering things. I just look at a photograph in my head, which I shot when I first read the number. It's always there and it never fades.
Honestly, mobile phones are pointless
As of 8 May 2019 I am without a mobile phone. And honestly? I don't care, since I barely used my phone anyway... you can always email me. Or idk, if you know me you could knock on my door and come in for a cup of tea? Not that I personally drink tea. I could also serve coffee, or water.
Now I am untraceable again, for the most part. You cannot reach me unless I want you to reach me. This is exactly how I like it. I hate talking on the phone.
