Whether legislation is the right way, I don't know; in my experience people often resent rules and laws that are imposed on them, even if they agree on the sentiment behind them. Basically, it is about respect; we should certainly respect other animals on their terms, but having rules imposed on you doesn't feel very respectful.
You mean rules like "Don't murder little Timmy"?
If you accept that some animals are much closer to us than to other kinds of animals, that they have personality, feelings, emotions, intelligence and all, then rules for dealing with them are no longer optional, they're mandatory. Just as some rules are mandatory between humans. Whether you like it or not is irrelevant.
B. Systemd is vulnerable to a problem/attack/etc which was already present in previous init systems, but for no reason this bothers me in sytemd.
Personally while not liking systemd, I wouldn't use that argument myself. That said, there is a difference in complexity between init (which does nearly nothing) and systemd. Higher complexity, I'm sure I don't need to tell you, always brings with it a higher risk of errors.
I think we can all agree that the old sysv init is obsolete and must be replaces with something more powerful. But as a *nix enthusiast, I'll want to keep what defines *nix: KISS. Things like grep are just right: they do one thing and they do it well, and you can use them for.. whatever, really.
I haven't tried systemd yet. What really scared me off the most is that the authors think they can do everything better than everyone else, and that it all should integrate with their one solution for booting (which basically, was a set of scripts up until now before they showed up).
It's like someone with a Sauron complex, handing out rings to everyone to make them all dependant on systemd and then do something sinister and unspeakable, weilding The One Ring...
Apple is like a wife; lets you think you'll get some for all you're paying, but you end up badly screwed.

I take the opposite view - when I see version control, bug tracking, and automated testing, it sets off alarm bells that a company is in the compartmentalization downslide.
I'd be interested to hear what kind of company you'd work for that doesn't use any of these tools. I'm sure that would make for an interesting story, especially where not even version control is used.
