Exactly, because in the jungle there are no rights

Oh, I get it now. You think that human beings aren't any different in their cognitive abilities, capacity for reason, and ability to think abstractly and communicate than are, say, tigers or lemurs.

I don't need it, but I need a government to tell others that.

No, you can tell them yourself, and if they are too irrational to digest the concept, and you're too weak to defend against violent, irrational people, then you need a government to help you protect your rights.

So your advice is that you should place more trust in code that you can't audit a single line of, just because it'd be hard to audit all FOSS code.

That's a pretty amusing substitute for logic, but you're welcome to apply it for yourself if you like.

Be sure to get back to us and let us know how that's worked out for you.

All the things that everyone knows are true, yet science won't dare to tread there.

You wrapped up rumour, hearsay, and gossip into one tidy package.

You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch'.

That doesn't sound like going down a rabbit hole. It sounds more like waking up.

If you need to download it first, you're waiting for a half hour or more to get a good copy.

You might be waiting half an hour--for me it's usually more like 5 minutes.

You might think streaming is a good solution for your shitty Internet, but it's really not.

The people who actually want streaming are the media cartels, so they can keep you from having a copy so they can charge you rent forever and ever, amen.
