Hardware, Embedded Systems No matter where you look these days, there's a profound sense here in the west that the people no longer having any tangible control over what our governments do. Sure, we are allowed to vote every once in a while, but effectively, most of our countries are governed by backroom deals and corporate interests. If matters really do get out of hand, how do we fight this? Well, with technology of course!

Hi,

What disgusts me with these kinds of comments is that it puts the blame on everybody except the VOTER!


If voters are given the choice between a poke in the eye and a punch in the arm; is it fair to blame the voter when one of these options must be chosen?
