That is the wrong question. The problem isn't about having people leaching the system there are other attributes towards wealth than raw survivaval we want to feel special and worth while, those who freeloading willingly really have some mental problem that should be addressed. The real question is on the other side if there are no corporations or rich people what will prevent people going that extra mile where it really suffers.
Let's use Musk as an example against all odds he is pushing clean energy and making money off of it. A government really would still stick with fossil fuel just because the risk of failure is low and the jobs for it are well defined.
The social imbalance is needed for progress.
But we need to make sure those at the bottom are not stuck. That is where the problem is.

Comment So what? (Score 0) 94

I am not sure the point. We got a thousand connections, sure they should connect to free wi-fi however...
1. So they found out what sites they went to. Now much of that data was incrypted. So the details weren't too obvious.
2. The numbers were not that crazy.
TFA said about 1000 people connected. So...
About 50 people played a popular game
7 people were using a dating app
3 people viewed porn.
Being that it is populated with many people who's main candidate married a porn star is it that surprising.
3. What does avast suppose to do about this? No matter how good the software you can't fix stupid.

For the most part that is all what Wikileaks seems to do.
Nothing really surprising, unless you are really naive about the world.

Should I be shocked that the Publicly the Civilian casualties count was lower than the actual?
Should I be shocked that a Military which is volunteer and not extremely selective and their ages are in the late teens and early 20's would have a bunch of people who will act less than professionally and cause trouble?

So why should I be shocked to find that When she is running for a position she is working with strategies to counteract her opponent?

Perhaps they should leak my email to find out that I spend a lot of time explaining my work and trying to avoid getting yelled at for the users mistakes?

That computer will be out of date in a few years. But the home theater (Albeit quirky) will raise the value of his home and his assets that 1.5 million dollars didn't go to waste, as he can always sell his home with the extra addition and make up the money, as well he can sell off many of his collections at action for more than he bought them for.

Getting that super computer is a bad choice.

Comment Re:unpasteurised milk is way better (Score 2) 249

I am curious if we we have scientific evidence of this. (Not necessarily that it is better, but it tastes different).
Or is it that most Pasteurised milk is also Homogenized (To prevent separation of the cream, with the rest of the milk.)
Or perhaps that most of the time Pasteurised milk sold in the store may had been sitting on the shelf for a few days longer.

As with many of the Natural Food and Non-GMO food people. There is little science behind their claims but are basing it of an emotional response towards it.

Being that the DMCA was signed by Bill Clinton. I bet you can use that as an argument to go against it. However I think (And I am too lazy at the moment to look it up) at the time the Legislative branch was republican controlled, but why let facts get in the way of political postering.

Well if you are going to invalidate a US Congressional Approved Law that was Signed by the President of the United States (2 out of the 3 parts of the US Checks and Balances). You better be sure that you have as much data to prove your case to the Judicial System as possible. Poorly presenting your case and if it goes to the Supreme Court and your loose makes it nearly impossible to fight the case again.
Much like how the conservatives fought over states rights for same sex marriages, in essence caused it to be legal in the entire state, because their defence of their stance wasn't backed up. If they didn't bring the case up, they may had a chance keeping what they perceive as a problem limited to only those LiBeRaL states.
