 "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

Holy crap batman. With bugs like this, the government doesn't even need to push for back doors in encryption.

People often look at me funny or get offended when I say that I hate this country. This article provides a perfect demonstration of why I feel the way that I do. And its just the tip of the iceberg. By the age of 33, I'm tired of the human race in general, and I am no longer interested in prolonging my personal existence any more than absolutely necessary. There is no point in e.g. working out in order to extend my life, when I don't feel like sticking around for another sixty years to see just how bad things will continue to get, anyway. Really, I hope I drop dead inside of a decade.

Nope, I stand by what I said. Due to the never-ending pursuit of more money and power, the businesses and the bribe-taking  puppets who run this country have robbed us of more of our freedoms just within the past twenty years than during the century which preceded that length of time.

 

Ever since computers and the web went mainstream, this place has been hurtling towards totalitarianism, full speed ahead.

Oh boy, here we go again! What is fascinating is the idea that they can't classify the cyber weapons, because the moment an agent deploys one of those cyber weapons on a target, he has broken the rules.

This is kind of disturbing, but not really a big deal.  There are plenty of other brands to choose from that sound just as good, sometimes for a lower price too. If you don't want what you are listening to to be monitored, you can just use a different brand.

 

This is in contrast to the PC game industry, where I can't just install and play a game by myself anymore without having an online service forcefully crammed up my ass whether I want it or not.

Websites even being able to detect whether I am in private browsing mode or not is a bug in the web browser, and should be fixed.

Here we go again! If only authorities could get into that phone, they would discover the secret schematics to build a time machine, at which point they could then go back in time and prevent the attack from happening in the first place. Or more likely, it's just people capitalizing on a tragedy to push an agenda, when the fact that the device is encrypted played no role whatsoever in the events that took place. Hobbling encryption would not have stopped this attack, nor will it stop the next one.

 

This guy was allowed to buy guns in spite of violent behavior. They let this guy slip through the cracks, as they so regularly do.
