Is there still a way we can get privacy with our computers

How can we guarantee we maintain privacy on our operating systems and from Internet providers.

It seems with the trajectory of technology and law are privacy is disappearing with our computers and many of us are looking to maintain this in the future.

How can we make our operating systems and Internet secure and private. Thanks.

The sad fact is, anymore now, the only way to guarantee privacy is to disconnect from the internet and encrypt everything on the computer.
