Read your own link. If you're walking around
with a cellphone turned on then, yes, you're
being tracked. It's virtually a radio collar. If
you shop online you might be tracked. If you
don't add Google properties to your HOSTS file
you're being tracked on most webpages. Probably
at least 70%. and that's just Google.

No. Like I said, it does take a little bit
of effort. But yes, it's much easier, in a
sense, to just be lazy and tell everyone else
that's the only option. And an all-or-nothing
logic is also a clever trick to maintain laziness:
I can't stop it all, so why bother?
I say it's easier in a sense because ignoring
reality is actually a very demanding, anxiety-
provoking pastime. Laziness is exhausting. If
you related to it instead then you wouldn't
feel compelled to constantly tell people
they're wrong because you wouldn't be trying
to hide from yourself.
