All you anti-corporate, pro-open-source Linux users can rejoice! Google has finally brought you the corporate-owned, closed-source Linux desktop of your dreams!
As a territorial police force of sworn constables, are they responsible for proposing laws?
No, but if the UK's politicians are anything like their American counterparts, the politicians will use their statements to support the new laws--as in "See, the police are saying they NEED this authority, to protect us from the T E R R O R I S T S ! ! !"
Illegitimate oppression = "My boss, that prick, just doesn't like me. He's holding back my brilliance."
Legitimate oppression = "My boss fired me because he said he hates working with niggers like me."
That's what people get for believing that ANY leader EVER wants people in his organization releasing embarrassing information to the public about said organization.
Anyone who ever tells you "I'm cool with the people who work for me embarrassing me and undermining me" is FUCKING LYING. Period. End of story. YES, YOUR GUY TOO! YES, GANDHI AND MOTHER TERESA TOO!
"Transparency" and "openness" are just a politician's way of saying "I need you to vote for me, but the second I'm in office I'm going to be just as much a shitheel as the last guy."
It may be a moral good, even a moral necessity to do it. But you're *never* rewarded for it, even under the best of circumstances (all these bullshit whistleblower bounty programs are just for show). And at worst, you'll end up in prison or dead.
If 99% of people make it through their entire lives without ever getting treated unfairly, discriminated against, or oppressed in any way that would absolutely fucking amaze me. I doubt the number is even close to 50% now even in the most advanced countries.
If it's anything like the science fairs we used to have at my high school, then it will turn out dad is a plant biologist (who swears the girls did it all on their own) and the girls will be curiously vague when asked about the methodology.
Oh I forgot a step:
5.5) Get some mod points and mod down anyone who calls you on any of this.
Did you know that men are roughly 50% of the population, but only 13% of elementary education teachers in the United States are men?
Help, help, we're being oppressed!!
It will never be "all" because we will never live in a perfect world. There will always be cases of SOME men, women, blacks, whites, Indians, etc. who are legitimately oppressed or discriminated against for many various reasons, even in the best countries. So if you can say "the vast majority of X are treated fairly" then you're doing about as good as is humanly possible.
1) Declare yourself a feminist hero
2) Create some fake posts or a fake website attacking yourself with vile and threatening language (the worse the better)
3) Run to the liberal press with copies of these "attacks" and declare yourself oppressed,
4) Demand public sympathy and support
5) Call any critics or skeptics misogynists
4) Goto 1
Yeah, but don't you feel sorry for that poor oppressed girl? She was being attacked and threatened by a website that her publicist paid someone to create! She's a VICTIM!!!!!
Don't worry, those are just props.
He would go, but all the extra Soyuz seats are currently occupied by American astronauts.
