Legal We've talked about ACTA before. ACTA is an anti-capitalistic treaty which implements several measures that will seriously hurt people's freedoms, rights, and privacy, all to, among other things, support a failing business model from an industry which has failed time and time again to adapt to a changing market. In any working free market, business models are allowed to fail, but the US/EU governments clearly don't see it that way. India has now announced that it is going to forge its own anti-ACTA coalition in an effort to undermine the new treaty.

The point of this article being on OSNews is so that readers intelligent enough to understand the most complicated systems on Earth--operating systems, jumbo jets, lunar modules, deepwater drilling rigs--might bring to bear an influence on the distracting battle of money. The sign of our times is that the monetary operating system needs patches, stimulants, and intelligence like Richard Stallman.

Otherwise we might be contented to enlighten each other on the subtle metaphysical analogies of operating systems. Everything is a computer.

Well played:

Stroke their egos so they pay less attention to your extremely stretched spin.

Those same smart people are probably smart enough to see through your remedial spin doctoring.

If there was satire, I missed it.
