Apple Apple is rejecting applications that use Dropbox because if the user of such an application does not have the actual Dropbox application installed, he is presented with a Dropbox login form through Safari, which happens to also show a sign-up link, and after clicking on that sign-up link, users could potentially run into one of the paid Dropbox options. Application developers and users surprised by this may need to read about the frog and the scorpion.

In a government that stands for the people

A government always stands for the peopleā€¦ the people with the most power. Why? Because those with power can give the politicians what they want. Do you not understand that we, as a species, are not altruistic? Given the choice to serve others or serve oneself, most people will always choose to serve themselves. They do not have your interests at heart. They will never have your interests at heart. The sooner you understand basic human psychology, the better off you will be when looking at how governments and corporations operate, and why such links between them are inevitable in the end. You're still looking at the symptoms and not the underlying cause.
