Hang on, in the 70s, London was having bombings like that - by the American funded IRA.

In those days, we did not wet our knickers and give up our privacy (much), and carried on regardless with a stiff upper lip.

I don't know what went wrong, but this is just as small part of it. personally, I blame cheap hard disks.

do they spy on politicians over there too?

Several Prime Ministers have been spied upon as potential Soviet agents - so the answer you are looking for is YES

They are spies - they spy on everyone if they did not spy on everyone, how would they know who to spy on? Should you trust them? If you dont know how to think for yourself, then the answer does not matter.

We are getting close to that in parts of the world, and it is spreading fast.

It used to be because the labour content was exported, but robots are replacing the offshore jobs/manufacturing.

It is time to come up with a new model of who gets what, and why. and how to implement it.

Or Ebola just may do it for us.

Nope. There is no way to get round the convergence-accomodation problem, except when the image is both logically and physically so far away that 3D is irrelevant.

3D is a bad idea. It makes your head hurt because you are experiencing the impossible. If it does not make your head hurt, then it is doing you harm.

If the code and the comments disagree, then both are probably wrong. -- Norm Schryer
