I want a work-free society that uses the technology and resources we have. You want a serf-based "work or die" Bronze Age mentality.

I'll let you decide who is the "Luddite" here. You may want to spend the rest of your weekend (get it?) to reflect upon why you are such a horrendous person.

"1) The world does not owe you a living"

Yet you feel the world owes cheap labor and no taxes to corporations? Why do you worship takers?

What is the purpose of science and technology if you feel like we should live like in the Middle Ages?

"2) If someone is willing to do your job as well as you for less money than you, they should have the job."

Sure, and that doesn't mean I should now starve in a world like ours. But to you and your delightful Bronze Age sensibility, it does.

Figures you're a software type.

Boy am I glad to read that. I'm not a photographer, but I've never been impressed with any Canon hardware, be it a camera, or a scanner, or a printer. Either the pictures are always out of focus, the stabilizer sucks, the software is shit, you name it. I don't see the appeal of Canon. Garbage hardware, garbage software, expensive.

Comment Re:Got my start with Terrapin Logo on an Apple ][ (Score 1) 68

Heh, we learned it on IBM XTs in high school. My first crack was LOGO for the Commodore 64, someone lent me their original disk and I cleverly managed to figure out the very simple protection. Why I was interested in LOGO when I was able to crack disks? Well, the BASIC on the 64 was bare-bones, and I liked making drawings without pages of BASIC POKEs and weird math.
