Monty Python gave the answer ages ago.
I'm even quite sure that's their motivation. Or at the very least their excuse. "We're keeping them safe!"
Ignoring that people should first and foremost have the right to choose whether they WANT to be kept safe. That's the fallacy of self proclaimed "protectors": They don't ask those they "protect" whether they'd want to be protected in the first place. "Protecting" someone against their consent is basically illegal restraint.
But the manager was dead, right? Please say so, I need closure!
Try to convince a Manager hellbent on joining "The Cloud" and you know the answer is no.
For a chuckle, have him explain what "The Cloud" is before you do. At least it provides some entertainment before you try to convince him he's about to sink his business.
Discrimination? Who speaks of discrimination? We're just asking a few harmless questions. And of course you may opt to not answer, that's completely within your rights. And of course not answering, or providing an answer we don't like, will have no influence on your chance to be employed whatsoever...
So? There are full blown fascists right now in the State Department, hellbent on derailing the United States Constitution and nobody gives a shit.
What possible business can H.S. have with vials of deadly diseases?
If there is a god, they wanted to take a good look inside whether the stuff is still in there.
1914? Are you high?
Businesses are so intertwined internationally that it is virtually impossible to start a war with anyone without offending at least half the businesses in your country. And that's something no government on this planet can afford.
Hate to pull the Godwin here, but it fits.
People during WW2 who dared to help those that were prosecuted for no other crime than being who they are were living in constant danger. Not just of being arrested or inconvenienced, but of being killed. Along with their family. Still, people did just that. By far not many, but surprisingly many. They sure as hell could not hope for fame and glory (especially during the first years when it sure looked like Germany would win that war), actually all they could expect is that sooner or later they'll be betrayed and end their life in a concentration camp.
Sometimes some things are more important than your convenience.
Guess someone took hook, line and sinker the spin that the US population doesn't support what Snowden did...
Same cost, same corruption and same amount of taxpayer money being squandered, but at least you do NOT get anything for it instead of getting inconvenience and surveillance.
I'd say it's a step in the right direction.
Dude, you have to learn how to read slogans. "Yes we can" means "We CAN, but we DON'T". And Hope and change means that you may hope for change. If you so please. It's a free country after all.
Seriously. Did anyone really expect anything just 'cause the guy is from the other end of The Party?
If daddy Stalin taught us anything then all that's needed is a firing squad. Or, if you have the bunch all rounded up in a building, just enough TNT to level it.
If history tells us anything, then that a single man who does things unsupervised can do a lot less harm than a whole governmental organization who does things unsupervised.
But certainly. How about Security Squad?
