Have you not realized that by not publically disclosing the list... Microsoft actually saves the FOSS community a lot of heart-ache and pain?
Rubbish. M$ isn't saving any one. If M$ puts out the list of infringing patents, then the patents on the list become a huge target for the FOSS community to dissect and prove prior work. M$ retains its strength by keeping those patents it thinks GNU/Linux infringes on secret until it litigates individual companies.
Once upon a time the US used to be a 'beacon of liberty' to the world.
When was this? Was the US a beacon of liberty to the Native Americans (genocide and slavery), Africans (kidnapping and slavery), Mexicans who's land was invaded and taken, Women and their rights, and the list goes on?
The NSA's SELinux, anybody? Obama administration Drupal sites? Forge.mil?
Cartman says: "That's called having your cake, and eating it too".
Now It is important to point out that tidal, wave, solar and wind power requires virtually no preliminary energy to harness, unlike coal, oil, gas, biomass, hydrogen and all the others.
In combination, these four mediums alone, if efficiently harnessed through technology, could power the world forever.
That being said, there happens to be another form of clean, renewable energy, which trumps them all- Geothermal Power.
Geothermal energy utilizes what is called heat mining, which, though a simple process using water, is able to generate massive amounts of clean energy. In 2006, an MIT report on geothermal energy found that 13,000 zettajoules of power are currently available in the earth, with the possibility of 2000 zj being easily tap-able with improved technology. The total energy consumption of all the countries on the planet is about half of a zettajoule a year. This means about 4000 years of planetary power could be harnessed in this medium alone. And when we understand that the earth's heat generation is constantly renewed, this energy is really limitless and could be used forever. These energy sources are only a few of the clean, renewable mediums available, and as time goes on, we will find more.

Clinton unveiled U.S. initiatives to help people living under repressive governments access the Internet for purposes such as reporting corruption.
Does this mean that when the USA government shuts down your internet connection for using bittorent, that you can use this to undermine the gov?
without taxes there is no society. without society you're very likely to experience actual theft and actual gun barrels, but very little services.
I hear there's no taxes in Somalia and it's only a plane ride away.
There is something called a resource based economy in which there is no money and therefore no taxes. This would be a much better society to live in because it solves the problems of crime, war, and poverty.
