A centralized source of information also means a fair bit of power/control over which information comes out. Couple this with the big push to protect the unwashed masses from 'fake news' and you have a pretty nasty result. No matter how good the initial intentions are, in the end, there's always an asshole (or a group of them) taking charge of that control.

You don't need capitalist-specific laws.

1- Fraud is illegal.
2- Theft is illegal.
3- Destruction of property is illegal.

The issue is that since they have friends in government, those basic laws do not apply to what most people call 'capitalists'. Let's start applying the laws that exist before we start begging for more regulations.

You have to employ your superior knowledge into actual competing projects in order to be taken seriously.

OpenRC already exists, does everything we want it to do and (more importantly) nothing we *don't* want it to do.

As such our superior knowledge can be spent in direct and vocal opposition to systemd because everything it claims to solve are issues none of its opponents consider to be actual problems.
