GNU, GPL, Open Source Late last year, president Obama signed a law that makes it possible to indefinitely detain terrorist suspects without any form of trial or due process. Peaceful protesters in Occupy movements all over the world have been labelled as terrorists by the authorities. Initiatives like SOPA promote diligent monitoring of communication channels. Thirty years ago, when Richard Stallman launched the GNU project, and during the three decades that followed, his sometimes extreme views and peculiar antics were ridiculed and disregarded as paranoia - but here we are, 2012, and his once paranoid what-ifs have become reality.

one glance over human history (any period any location),
tells me that 90% of ppl like collars and leashes.
and the rest, 10%, like to use them ppl as disposable objects. tools.

either side it's disgusting.

censure and manipuation of the information all over the world.
(e.g: fukushima, here in france, a pro-nuclear country, there's almost *zero* news coverage about the catastrophe, is that normal ? we're all concerned. japan lying to it's own citizen is already quite something, but other country with independant press as well knowingly relaying the false information?!) when ppl will start developping cancers, they will hide the information that connects the cause to the nuclear industry (mafia). they're already doing this in japan. they've already did this in france in 1986 with tchernobyl. and now again.
so if that goes for japan and france i suspect we aren't alone doing this. other countries are probably following more or less.

worldwide, we see news laws being voted without the consent of the population these are law to control, spy and force ppl to behave,
even if the citizens realize and try to rebel, they get shoot by police. even for small public protest they send us armed, armored cops.

work hard and be quiet. that's the message. heck they even succeed at pushing ppl against ppl. divide to reign.
you can see it at all level of society, but for example with proprietary software so i do not go too much off-topic ;)
if you have a copy of say photoshop, you are not allowed by law to lend it to me so i can perform a task with it. and everybody finds it's normal ?! but lending me your car or a tool for doing some tasks like a hammer or a screwdriver is still ok ? why is that ?

they suck the life and the freedom out of us all. in the very name of liberty and welfare of everyone ..the irony.
i don't believe in politicians. they're all corrupted.
and we can't do nothing about it all beside turning into barbarians and cut off the bad heads.
how sad.
