No, actually, libertarians do not say that, but go ahead, keep getting your information on them from the NYT and MSNBC.
How about the ones linking to youtube vids of someone typing (very slowly) into notepad.. those are my favorites..
I guess it depends how he has it set up. The cool part of those 'archaic' applications is that they can be automated any number of ways.
The modern email client also allows embedding of pictures and scripts which made it one of the primary vectors for viruses.
Sorry to break apart your public school taught black and white world, but things are much more complicated than "democrat good 4 change, neocon bad." RMS is anything but a conservative, by nearly ANY definition of conservative, neocon, socialist, communist, or liberal.
Critiquing the new is not the same thing as hating change.. I wish people like you would quit parroting out the old 'hater' fallacy every time something new is bashed. A lot of new things these days deserve the bashing they get.
or maybe he did view the image with another util, and he's smart enough to know the 'critical error' isn't really critical, and the rest of the office is losing it over nothing? I've seen it go down this way before.
Or maybe he prefers the simplicity of pine over the convoluted mess that is outlook? Choosing a different path does not automatically imply a superiority complex.
A nice anecdote, but, really, he's still not in the same situation as his employees, mainly for the reason you stated: he doesn't have to. He doesn't have to answer to anyone, he doesn't have to do those tasks to get paid, and he doesn't have to tolerate any passive aggressive attempts at manipulation in order to keep his job.
They had to have done something, or we'd probably be a recently freed territory of great britain today. These people were not of the same culture as what we have today.
Management/BSA graduate types of today operate on the dudebro concept. No technical knowledge of the business is actually required, only a bit of 4 function math and the invaluable who-you-know list. In fact, showing that you do have technical knowledge causes the others to either feel intimidated and work to expunge you, or you're passed off as an anti-social geek and hit a promotion glass ceiling.
This is why our economy will probably tailspin in a few years: the people with the power do almost none of the work, while the people who actually do it, are increasingly tied up in the passive aggressive office dynamics created by that top level insecurity. Meanwhile, countries without 50 years of this holding them back will get things done more cheaply and efficiently...and, when things finally get really bad here, with more personal liberty intact. Now that will be a sad day for the USA.
Nope.. this is little different from some overweight guy in his 40s who still decorates his entire home with NFL paraphernalia, always dresses in a jersey of his favorite team, and couches every conversation with football analogies.
Yeah I know, heaven forbid that healthy men prefer to differentiate themselves from feminine attributes as a function of maturation.. When women or effeminate men behave according to their inclinations, it's 'empowerment', but when men are masculine, it's insecurity. Gotcha.
Except that life rarely responds to toxic exposure linearly. At some point it will become increasingly difficult for radically larger percentages of the population to breath. Of course, summers will be 65C by then..
Actually, people like him aren't communists or fascists, they're terrorists themselves. Anyone questioning the doctrine of the Supreme Corporate Soviet should be labeled as such so they are denied the 'privilege' of due process.
and their democrat/neocon elected idiots in washington. Yee's 'argument' could apply to just about anything, including things like computer hardware, software, tools/manufacturing equipment, and anything else that empowers the individual in some way. Why not put those behind a regulated paywall too?
Of course, a hyper regulated country with an ever shrinking 'freedom sandbox' is the leftist definition of liberty, and I'll bet the business interests behind the neocon right wouldn't mind it either. Anything to keep the peon employee-slaves in line, right?
