The Amish feel that personal technology peaked in the early 1800s or so, and that most things invented subsequently only provide a distraction from living a worthwhile life.

You appear to be the same, but for 2001 instead. I guess there's nothing wrong with that, but don't expect the world to go along with you.

More time spent on this pointlessness means less time available for their normal job of ruining things. Yeah the USA is "outrageously fucked up", but Congress can pretty much only make it worse, so the more they get out of the way, the better.

Wolf's my congressman btw. If someone better wants to run I'd be all for it, but the ones who actually run against him are much worse.

Slashdot used to lean libertarian, but has been pretty much just liberal since, I don't know, at least 2004.

Actually I would say the decline in quality at Slashdot is correlated pretty closely to the decline in libertarian leanings.

Where the OP got "conservative" I have no idea, Slashdot has never been that.
