There happens to be very little chance that regular people in their daily lives pay attention to the security of their electronics. This is at least somewhat peculiar, seeing there are numerous dangers associated with doing important things upon these objects.

For the curious or the inquirer into the subject, questioning may occur like the following. Where can one begin taking some authority back?

It does take a bit of effort to widen the gap between security and threat, to lessen threats and hold them off. This gap increases with both the understanding and action of what needs to be done regarding securing devices. Once the gap effectively enlarges through more secure tech usage, more satisfaction results when turning to using computers or electronics.
Take up some positive thinking already! Have you begun to fight for your right to secure your own devices? There is much that can be done to thwart outside decadence.
