PS: and it's not an ad hominem to call you an idiot, if I can demonstrate that you are an idiot. Which I did.
systemd uses journald for its own internal logging. It's like in my applications that I write I use logback (Java logging) and you are asking if you could replace logback with your own logging framework. You could, if you hack my application. But what is the point of it.

Sure you can. systemd-ask-password is not even linking systemd.

Linux have binary log files for years, and nobody complained about it.
See /var/log/wtmp http://linux.die.net/man/5/wtm...
And it wasn't "railroaded". Debian had a vote in the TC and Ubuntu choose to use systemd instead of their own. How is that in any way "railroaded"?

Seems like configuration should be a single file that lists the programs to start from top to bottom. If you wanted add some parallel start-ups, it seems like you could just make the config file format a little fancier, maybe with some braces or indentation to express dependency.

Just like systemd service files?

How many times is this lie going to be repeated. Systemd does not put everything "into one application". Systemd consists of many separate applications and daemons, many of them not even link against systemd. The developers of systemd have all of those separate apps and daemons in one code repository, but you can pull each of them out and compile each of them separatly.

The cold temperature also ensures that the fluid, known as a Bose-Einstein condensate, provides a silent medium for the passage of sound waves that arise from quantum fluctuations.

The sound waves arises from quantum fluctuations, and those sound waves can propagate through the medium because it is a Bose-Einstein condensate, i.e. it have almost(?) zero resistance to sound waves. So that experiment is acutally measuring quantum fluctuations.

It depends on the situation. What you certainly do not have is unlimited free speech.
Brandenburg v. Ohio "The constitutional guarantees of free speech and free press do not permit a state to forbid or proscribe advocacy of the use of force, or of law violation except where such advocacy is directed to inciting imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action."
And further, Justice Frank Murphy "There are certain well-defined and limited classes of speech, the prevention and punishment of which have never been thought to raise a Constitutional problem. These include the lewd and obscene, the profane, the libelous and the insulting or “fighting” words – those which by their very utterances inflict injury or tend to incite an immediate breach of the peace."

In addition, NSLs do prohibit political speech, in that we'd need to hear from people who have been sent them in order to come up with a reasonable grievance to petition for redress, so the automatic gag is Constitutionally iffy even by your standards.

You need to prove that in a court.

Your whole argument is BS. The 1th is not that you have the unlimited power to say whatever you feel like, and that your government cannot make laws restricting you to say whatever you want. The 1th is about political speech and freedom of religion. The 1th does not give you the right to incite hate speech or incite any form of crime or cause any form of harm. Your rights ends when they infringe on other people rights, and the government is elected to ensure the rights of all.

This sort of thing is exactly what the Bill of Rights is meant to protect us against.

You would be correct if the NSLs would prohibit somebody to excercise political speech or religion. But congress is perfectly in its rights to limit your free speech to protect other citizens rights. Like, you have no 1th right to shout fire in a crowded theater and thus cause a panic and maybe the death of some people. Or you have no 1th right to tell people to kill some other people.

You do realize that the 1th does not trump all the other ammendments of the constitution only because it is the first? That is why your government can arrest you for a crime, for example, and thus restricting your 1th, 2th, etc.

Make headway at work. Continue to let things deteriorate at home.
