Sure, but part of that is recognizing the extent of the real world exposure.Imagining it to be limited to a small portion of farmland is not realistic.
It's not just in agriculture though. It's hard to find decorative plants that haven't been treated with it.
I believe you must mean the Democans and Republicrats. I see no evidence that either has any intention of butting out of people's lives.
There are many variations of this. One I *think* works (but I don't have the skill to check) is that the universe is "sort of" like a simulation, where only macroscopic items have a defined state, but the macroscopic items have defined contents and a defined energy spectrum, and when you arrange to "look closely" at one of those items, it alters the state of the rest of the item in a computationally conservative way, such that you can't detect the difference until you start getting really close to the limits of the simulation, at which point you get results that are statisticly chosen to confirm the conditions of the macroscopic item. So if you split off a bound pair of subatomic particles, they are so pair has defined characteristics, but there is no definition of the components until you look.
Think of it as a way of simplifying the model so that it can run faster on the host computer. The actual "host computer" may not really exist, but if it did, this would be the most efficient way to program it.

I don't think you appreciate the magnitudes involved. Picture the biggest forest fire you've ever heard of. Here's a dime store squirt gun and a canteen. Go put it out. Good luck, we're all pulling for you.
Now realize that it's nowhere near that easy.
A better approach is to make the copyright holder a legal steward of the work until it enters the public domain. That is, they have a legal duty to maintain it in the best possible form and make sure it gets handed off to interested parties when it enters the public domain. Failure to do so is a breech of the contract resulting in handing all profits from the work during copyright to the public (that is, a massive fine).
If the cost of maintaining the work exceeds the value, they may choose to terminate the copyright early, but must give sufficient public notice.
Even being a native is no guarantee of safety. Even if you are a native, there is bound to be some asshat from another tribe who wants to see you dead because they disagree with your interpretation of what some deranged child molester said 1400 years ago.
Would you provide it just run full speed until it burns out?
Actually, it wasn't my statement, but I did defend it as not too far from true.
Because many over 60 have very little experience with computers, you have more knowledge to backfill in order to teach them about computers (starting with de-mystifying the magic box). Again, not a question of intelligence or educability, just a matter of experience.
That will be true for many (more often than not), but clearly is far from universally true.
I suspect, these are simply magic.
I have little doubt most of those things are magic to most people, but through using them for decades, they have learned to deal with them from a black box perspective. The 60 somethings who have recently found a good enough reason to bother with a computer will get there too.
Cheap and well built. I recently bought a $250 from the local Microcenter and first thing I did when I got it home was to take it apart. Let's just say I was impressed with the quality of the parts inside. Very much reminded me of Apple, expect it was easier to put back together, all the screws were the same size and had standard heads on them that didn't require a special tool to deal with. I buttoned it up and installed Linux. Go Acer!
That explains the human sacrifice to appease the Volcano Gods - so they can release all that pent-up frustration in virgin territory
I can see that, but that group was a small minority of people who are now 60+ years old. It's enough that one shouldn't assume a 60+ year old is a computer novice, but not enough to invalidate the claim that most 60+ year olds are less knowledgeable of computers.
Actually, growing up in the cold war did the opposite for me. I see our government doing more and more of the things that made "the Russians" the bad guys. I guess I'm "doublethink impaired".
Based on the last few years, I'd have to say neither one. They seem more interested in listening to the demographic that has millions to billions of dollars under their control.
