We are improving the world. It's just that the ignorant idiots keep f*cking things up.
We build free open architecture computers and advocate them. They buy iPhones.
We build and promote free software. They use Windows and pay bizar abmounts of subscription fees for office programms. (Hardly believable but, seriously, no joke.)
We tell them man-made climate change is a real thing and we need to react and they say it's all made up because of ... reasons ...
We build and promote electric cars and high-tech bicycles. They buy the next big Porsche Cheyenne.
We explain to them that a public transport system built with half the money spent on private cars would be something like a Star Trek utopia of transport. They clog up the cities with stacks and rows of parked private cars.
We tell then not to use Facebook and WhatsCrap, but rather Diaspora and Jabber. They don't give a flying f*ck. (Well, my daughter does. Smart girl. Daddy loves you.)
We tell them nuclear fission doesn't add up, but they just do what energy powermongers want.
We tell then voting machines are a very very bad idea. What do they do? Build and deploy voting machines. ...
It's like I've always said:
Powerful tools in dumb hands is always the biggest problem of technological advancement.
