Legal And yes, the PRISM scandal is far, far from over. More and more information keeps leaking out, and the more gets out, the worse it gets. The companies involved have sent out official statements - often by mouth of their CEOs - and what's interesting is that not only are these official statements eerily similar to each other, using the same terms clearly designed by lawyers, they also directly contradict new reports from The New York Times. So, who is lying?

Interesting. I had been thinking similarly for some time; work needs to be about either pursuing a passion (FOSS development, art, science, etc.), or attempting to access more "stuff" by gaining more than a baseline level of purchasing power.

The amount of talent wasted in pushing money around for the sake of making more money is just ridiculous nowadays.

None of these reforms are likely to occur any time soon though, due to the grip the capitalists (who have all of the money) have over public opinion.
Unemployment is going to rise, *which is not a bad thing; more time for personal projects to advance human culture and knowledge* - but people are convinced that it is. Insanity.
