apologies in advance; It is not my attempt to pick on sundialsvc4, nor the OP.

That said; while you make some valid points, sundialsvc4. They are simultaneously invalid.

While we can slow the waters. We will be overcome. History -- both short, and long; prove that those that pledge to serve us are in reality; self-serving SOB's.

They make laws that claim to serve us. But look the other way, when someone wants to break it. Because that someone gave them something they couldn't refuse -- money, power. Then they use the fact that they created that law, as a reason to re-empower themselves by the voters in the next election.

The technolog(y|ies) we love because of the conveniences they provide us, are simultaneously evil, because they are just as conveniently abused. Would you, or anyone, insist these technologies be banned? It's the only solution.

In short; humans can't be trusted TDTRT (to do the right thing). What's right to one, is not to another -- we all have our own measuring stick. Hell; even society can't decide what the ideal, or right society is; Just look at all the different countries we have, with all their different democracies, or un-democracies, ...

These types of conversations are very stimulating, and simultaneously pointless. The end WILL come. We have only to look to history to see all the societies, and civilizations that have risen, and fallen. To know it's true. Each new time, saying "we'll do it different this time". When in reality, they are just using new labels for all the same things. Human beings can't be trusted to govern themselves. They will one; never agree with one-another, and two; will do the wrong thing (whatever that is) even when they know they shouldn't.
