I'm totally of that age, have  a turntable and an LP collection. I NEVER (and I mean never) play them, and don't miss it. 

 

I have 2 turntables - not setup and over 3000 LPs still in boxes. They have been this way for 4 years now and don't miss them.

You should sell the LPs, the values are quite high right now

 

Much of it is not worth selling. I used to buy record collections at garage sales. I have some not-so-great stuff and some pretty rare stuff.

 

An Iggy Pop - bootleg live LP - Suck on This? - on Ruthless Rhymes records - lol.

California and the EU are way ahead on this. The issue is, SCOTUS has said that there is no right to privacy in the Constitution (part of the Roe V Wade overturn - this is as political as I will get). Privacy advocates have been ringing the alarm on this, but so far falling on deaf ears.

I don't want to get into politics, but from a practical and meaningful standpoint, the way to move this forward is starting with the harm done to minors.   Would think that is important to everyone.    

 

That is why I said what I did. I totally agree. Parents should also be involved with minor's use of phones, internet, etc.

some parents are starting to understand that, unfortunately, they cannot post pictures of their kids online.  These photos get scraped and possibly become part of facial recognition data. Or an introduction to weirdos.  

 

Most people just don't seem to understand that they are living in a dangerous digital world and must take measures to protect themselves and their families.  It shouldn't lead to paranoia, but it should lead to intelligent vigilance.   Hopefully, that includes the so-called Tik Tok moms who promote their kids online.   

Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean that they're not out ...

We all need a little humor now and then.
