    there really isn't any hope. Not really. This stuff will never - ever - be reformed or curtailed in any meaningful way.

    Obviously most reading this (myself included, I hope) are still going to fight in whatever way they can, but... This is just one aspect of the perpetual class war being waged against the majority of earth's inhabitants. Until the overall paradigm is turned on it's head, we have zero chance of providing any real impediment to "total information awareness".

    Sadly, Americans no longer give a damn about the principles upon which this country was (in part) founded. They want to be entertained, and apparently seek little else.

    I don't mean to be gloomy. Battles this profound do not require hope; we fight because we must. We fight because there are still children in the world. We fight them because they fight us.

    To borrow the words of Antonio Gramsci, "a pessimism because of intelligence, but an optimism because of will."

    T'd/R'd... Thx for the info, markthshark. Appreciated.

    Money speaks for money, the devil for his own... Who comes to speak for the skin and the bone?
