Paranoia is an instinct or thought process believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of delusion and irrationality. Is that what you are asking about?

The United Shitholes of Amerika. Water here isn't as bad as it is in a lot of places like Flint, but it's pretty bad and getting worse all the time. They even tell you what is in the water in required annual tests/reports. Of course it's within EPA guidelines most of the time, but that doesn't mean it's safe.

I too am super spoiled. I run my tap water through a sediment prefilter, a chlorine/chloramine-removing KDF carbon filter, a reverse osmosis membrane, a deionizer, a remineralizer, and UV light at the last stage. Tastes pretty good. It costs pennies per gallon - significantly less than bottled water. Also costs less than the health problems people get from drinking the water here.

To detect if something phones home or connects to the internet, you could run a packet capture, on your computer, or on your router, or on some other device on your network that can see your traffic. Wireshark and tcpdump are packet analysers. What is your operating system and network setup?

To block the outgoing traffic from leaving your computer, you could use a firewall running on your computer. Two libre options are iptables and ufw. ufw is probably easier to set up.

If all else fails, disconnect your computer from the internet.

Yes. I am currently living and working in the United $hitholes of Amerikkka. My partner and I are going to move to a less oppressive country and buy some relatively inexpensive stolen land there in a small community. I will build a place and live and work there until I am able to quit my day job.

I am able to do this in part because I have some hard-to-find skills and forced my slave driver to allow me to work 100% remotely.

I will also try to help friends and comrades to escape their indentured servitude and join us. A lot of them do not have any prospects for their futures (or present) so it may not be difficult to persuade them.
