Until we work out which larger acts of resistance to use against five more years of Tory lies, xenophobia and depravations under Boris Johnson here’s a small one you can try; who knows, maybe it will confuse some of his tax-dodging friends, perhaps even lose them a penny or two.
For every genuine enquiry you type into your search engine (e.g. ‘Best countries to emigrate to in 2020’) type something wholly invented as well (e.g. ‘Where can I find an enormous hat companion for the 1948 Olympics?’). It might just throw the algorithms employed by the corporate barons to sell you crap off your scent. It could even help disguise your true intentions when it comes to the struggles ahead.
I know, it’s a little pathetic. But – if your brain is wired anything like mine – it’s also creative, fun and strangely addictive. I call it ‘distraction poetry’ and you can find more examples of it here and here. Give it a go, and in the course of your random searches you might just churn up some grains of insight on the seabed of the net that you can fling into the smug faces of those in charge. Every little helps!
