Worldwide Campaign to stop the Abuse and Torture of Mind Control/DEWs
Barbaric and horrific acts of torture that you will soon know about, with abuse levels that indicate a decent amount of desperation on the part of the criminals, have been put in place since my active participation in the "theintercept" (https://firstlook.org/theintercept). This website has an international audience, the majority of whom are journalists. Needless to say, it also has its fair share of the lowly type that is often used to discredit persons like Glenn Greenwald, some TIs, etc, for daring to expose criminal activity. Now back to the email encryption subject.
The New York Times today (July 17, 2014) had a very good video online about email encryption. In the video, the young journalist doing the beat suggests that, if you wish to encrypt your email because of the pervasive and ubiquitous invasion of privacy that the whole world all knows about by now (thanks to Edward Snowden), you may want to download an extension that works with the Chrome and Firefox browsers (not IE) and integrate it into the browser. Once there, you can encrypt all your inbound as well as outbound 'gmail' or 'Outlook', etc. The name of the extension is 'Virtru'.
Integration of the extension with these browsers is smooth and takes less than 2 minutes at most. There are of course, a myriad of other encryption tools now available to internet users, some for a fee, but if you want something nice and easy and still does a 256bit level encryption, 'Virtru' might be the way to go.
