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!

Going to have to Godwin this ... Similar tactics don't work against people like Stalin or Hitler.

It certainly wouldn't have happened in Europe where the Catholic Church used to celebrate Hitler's Birthday (and continued to until the 1960s), Nazism was preferable to the Catholic Church than any Jewish presence in Europe.

I don't think people know how lucky we have it in the Western world.
