Problem is "informed consumers" doesn't exist. People are more likely to believe whatever the media is paid to say, than somenone in the internet claiming Acme's Asbestos Pie is toxic.
I would love to test the idea of congressman choosen in a random way. As anyone with the money or will required to be elected in a democracy is probably evil in my opinion.
And expect everyone to do their part will never bring the metric system in or the mafia out. It's always powerful people with tons of money that change anything like it. When it appears that it is not so, you just missed someone controlling it from the shadows. Like sucessful revolutions always having help from some foreign country. Caring about politics, using linux and resisting the mafia only brings futile work and/or suffering for the small individual. You only have a right to vote because its cheaper to finance campaigns than financing revolutions or defending from them.

Tried ubuntu for a media box, hdmi output had video but not audio. Ubuntu web site said it was not a priority at the time. No time to lose with linux anymore.
create a different user for each game you buy, give the user with the game when you sell
When it benefits the powerful it happens. But average 3rd world joe won't ever be able to work in the US, and you'll never drink coke with sugar instead of corn sirup again.
This "developing" terminology is a lie to make people accept things. No "developing" country as they are today ever turned into "developed".
You talk shit like this because you live in the so caled developed world. For us others these walls will continue to be very real. They only weaken when it is for the benefit of the powerful.
Wanted to save my father a few bucks with this ubuntu version in his new machine to be used as a media player. Couldn't make hdmi audio output to work, gave up and had to buy a windows license. Then I saw the requirementes for a hardware to be ubuntu certified and it is said that hdmi audio is not tested.
It's already possible to buy a chinese clone phone that does everything an Nokia E-71 or I-Phone does for half the price.
Where I live there is a serious problem with copper thieves, but the phone lines were never touched, I'm not sure why. Cell phones are seem as cheaper only because they can be pre-paid, so you can simply stop paying if you're short on money. But a land-line to land-line call is 1/20 the price of a cell call.
Better than judges being forced to release criminals because we were out of jails, as happens frequently in Brazil.
Great your ISP has a local office you can complain. Where I live (Brazil) all you have is a shitty 0800 that has no shame to hang up when you try to cancel their services or anything they don't like. (You have to sue to make some providers stop sending their bills and ruining your crediting when you stop paying here).
We don't need manual moderation, they can just require identification of users.
