If the systemd movement was sane, that is exactly what would happen. Instead they have the total confidence and unshakable faith in their chosen fetish that otherwise only religious fanatics have. From the time I realized this, I have lost all respect for them and all motivation to argue the case: These people are not sane or rational. They do not want choice or freedom. They do not listen to arguments, no matter how accurate or justified. They want their thing to be the only thing allowed and though shalt not have any other thing. They are the enemy and must be fought.

Unfortunately, you summary is accurate. I still do not understand how these people could creep in. The sheer magnitude of resistance should give them pause and reconsider whether they may be doing something wrong. Instead: Total confidence, absolutely no acknowledging of problems, no interest at all in compromise. It it is almost like arguing with religious fanatics...

There is a difference between "attacks" and valid criticism. Calling everybody that criticizes systemd and its adoption into Debian a "troll" or an "attacker" is unfounded and represents an extreme form of trolling itself. One could get the rather strong impression that the systemd advocates do not want any dialog or have sufficient valid arguments to deal with the criticism voiced. Instead they revert to this form of primitive emotional manipulation.

AMD produces CPUs in Dresden, Memory and chipsets are fully produced outside the US, ARM is British, the CPUs for china's supercomputer are made there, etc. These are global companies, sometimes non-US domestic ones, but never only US companies. You mindless patriotism blinds you to reality.

Result of your proposed move would be that the US would not get components, not the other way round.

Hackers of the world, unite!
