The threat of terrorism is a lame excuse for mass surveillance.
Copyright protection is a lame excuse for mass surveillance.
Child porn is a lame excuse for mass surveillance.
The Olympics!? They're not even trying any more.
The world in 1984 is a global symmetric system.
You have some of the prerequisites for that system in place:
Perpetual war on X
A vast military-industrial complex to destroy the excess of human production.
Choice between two indistinguishable political ideals.
However the 1984 world is also in equilibrium. Once big brother exists, he will always have existed.
You're discounting the possibility of being conquered from without.
I call rule 34 on rule 34
The function requires an animation loop and event handler otherwise it does nothing. After that, it's way more than 140 bytes.
Right, the American legal system would only destroy someone's life if they wrote a circumvention for a copy-right protection system.
I dunno about this.
The European Parliament seem hell bent on protecting human rights lately, despite a barrage of 4-letter acronym pro-censorship laws.
Repel 'Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act' in the UK.
A defeat for US e-colonialism.
To which the solution is, better wood burning stoves, with a chimney to improve draft, operating temperate and efficiency, while eliminating indoor pollutants.
Even a flue that's not completely air-tight is a start, because the pressure is lower than ambient, and it draws air in along its length.
The Philips wood burning stove was way cooler than these looks good on paper solar contraptions. Not that this design would be suitable for these villages, but better wood stoves should have been first on the list.
I heat my cosy developed-world house using wood, and it's incredibly clean and efficient. And by clean I mean even "a little bit of dust" would be unacceptably dirty. The yearly chimney sweep shows that the combustion itself is very close to complete, and the fuel itself is free. Garden waste to most people.
That isn't what happened, but thanks for sharing your narrow perspective.
The goal of this charity is "to heal the climate crisis though reforestation"

Wahwhua: Here is a crappy solar cooker we designed. Use this instead of harvesting firewood.
Villagers: This solar cooker is completely inferior to our existing wood stoves. It's not fit for purpose.
Wahwhua: Ok, here is our new design. You should use this because YOU'RE damaging the planet.
IE is crap, but not for that reason. IE9 is missing some very-nice-to-have bits of HTML5 just because it was released so long ago.
As for CSS3, yes it's deficient in some areas, but there is a trick to get around many of them: SVG
Unless you have to support IE8 (LOL poor you), then the users will never notice the smoke and mirrors.
