Pretty sure USA is expecting and half encouraging you to pirate Mr Robot. It's a caché thing for them. Back in the day, networks neede a high quality evening news show to be relevant, even if the shows lost money. Nowadays, cable networks need a high quality, critically acclaimed show to be relevant, even if it means losing some money. Longt term, they don't want to be relegated to the garbage pile after a la carte becomes the norm.

You've completely missed the purpose of the regulation. Airbnb is driving up housing costs because people are purchasing homes and then renting them continuously as hotels. The company is providing meaningful support for people to circumvent existing zoning laws. The regulations are an attempt to put a stop to that.

We abandoned that shit here in the U.S. decades ago. We setup black sites to hold innocent people so they fall between the cracks of the constitutional system We even had to set up special courts specifically designed to circumvent constitutional rights and push victims through the system more rapidly and cheaply.

And the Republicans and Democrats just cry "terrorism" and "gun violence" and think that solves the nation's problems.
