Small correction. Apple does not have customers, they have "acolytes".
Can MIT render you or kill you in a drone strike? And I guess you missed the "voluntary" part.
The idea that every single human on the planet can haul their ass around in about 1000 kilos of metal and plastic on road, literally, paved with oil, is about as stupid as a plan ever devised by us monkeys. Whether by oil or lithium, it's still a remarkably stupid idea.
Yes, fine, but how many people did you kill with your car mounted laser cannons?
"Clearance"? Authoritarians are robots.

America is sleep walking, as usual, into a war with China.
You don't have to be super skilled to use a lathe to make a steel barrel either, so between the few, and perhaps a few other easily or obtained metal parts, and you might have yourself a serviceable device.
Signed and ratified international treaties are US law.
It's done all the time. *see: Geneva Conventions
What was he supposed to do? Stop reading to the kids, stand up, and say "Children, I must save the United States! Begone!" - demon
Right, you get a call that your house on fire while you are at work, but you just sit there for 20 minutes to finish reading your email. Laughable. His location was also known, it was scheduled visit, public. Sitting there put himself and the kids at risk. OTOH Cheney was practically dragged out of office by SS men just as soon as they got the news. That's just SOP.
