How many layers of autism OPSEC are you on?

My router runs DD-WRT (Hardened), I use DNSCrypt, and I have a librebooted Dankpad running OpenBSD. (I use the thinkpad for things that require privacy) and I follow the obvious practices of OPSEC.

My main machine runs Debian GNU/Linux using only free software. I dual boot with windows server 2017

My home folder is encrypted using eCryptFS over in GNU/Linux land

I run my main on a windows 8 machine using the RTM that was leaked on /g/ a few years back, I install and immediately turn off updates, I then turn off the fire wall and install chrome without an anti virus
my login goes right to desktop without a password

Well, I'll give you some unironic advice.

>The RTM that was leaked on /g/ a while back
MyDigitalLife forums has unmodified MSDN ISOs that you can use. Verify the checksums on the MSDN download center yourself.

>I turn off updates
Don't. Just don't. That's one of the most retarded things you can do in terms of security.

>I then turn off the firewall
Well, most routers provide one anyway, but again, for what purpose?

>Install chrome
Install Pale Moon or Firefox ESR, along with uBlock Origin and HTTPS Everywhere. Enable some filterlists.

>without an anti virus
Most people don't need an antivirus, unless they install shit from torrent sites regularly.

>my login goes right to the desktop without a password

I'm using a VPN, am careful with letting Javascript and ads in and that's pretty much it.

Going to put together my fully encrypted workstation with separate VMs for everything Any Day Now, I'm just going to read one more greentext pastebin first though.

>OpenBSD
Nice. The community has a reputation for being full of raging autistic condescending assholes, but I've met a few guys in person and had a great time. Should probably try it out someday.

And their "put up or fuck off, idiot" attitude should at least keep SocJus entryists away from the project.

I have given up
99% of security methods are not good enough
If i route everything through secure networks I'd be more suspicious
right now all i can do is attempt to fly under the radar of my near fascist government

My opinions are illegal
my vidya are illegal
my memes are illegal
my god damn memes are fucking illegal

I was raised to question things, be sceptical
There are a things in my country that being even slightly skeptical of will get me jailed for years, and heavily fined

I lost this war for freedom before I was even born

OPSEC is a meme. Software is nothing more than placebo when your hardware may potentially be compromised without your knowledge.

Big Brother isn't the only threat out there. There are countless weaker threats on the web that you can defeat with good security practices.

Just because you may not be able to defeat nation state level intelligence services that may have compromised hardware at a base level doesn't mean that you should give up on security. There are plenty of Chinese scammers, drunk Russian hackers, and the 400 pound basement man known as 4chan that you can stop.

I can't even seem to do that, just bricked a router the other day. Did you have to go through a couple steps or was it as easy as clicking "upload firmware" on the config screen?

This was me, updating. It really wasn't too hard, just don't be a clueless newb and try to install firmware via a wireless connection. Be sure to follow the instructions to the letter, but it's got a decent GUI so it's much like using any other one after you get past the first part (which was exactly as described). Maybe try to practice with a cheaper router first if one's available. There's lots of used ones around.

A very, very, very informative article.
Recommended is the introductory section about "plausible deniability" with Veracrypt.
