Banks, car makers, door lock makers, virtually any product that uses technology at it’s core is an unrestricted playground for what the uninformed (I’m looking at you Fox viewers) usually refer to as hackers.
The problem is that pretty much every single one of these products are unbelievably insecure, regardless of what the bank, hotel or website tells you.
Thanks to the US government allowing their surveillance apparatus to continue to use zero day exploits, and software bugs, especially encryption technology to spy on it’s own citizens rather than actually tracking and catching terrorists.
Hackers like this man are NOT the problem. Governments who continue to use gaping security holes in technology or worse planted trojans (Stuxnet) as offensive weapons instead of hardening our technology and increasing our defensive capabilities against such attacks.
In short, hackers like this gentleman are the kinds of people we need to save and protect or cities, countries and planet. No the spooks from the NSA or any other government based security apparatus.
Canada’s Blue Rodeo throws a heaping of well deserved reality at Harper and his sole sucking, dream crushing Conservatives with their new song Stealin’ All My Dreams which is a catalog of all the horrors of the Harper regime, from stifling scientists to strip-mining the CBC to doubling down on tar-sand oil.
Canada’s youth needs to get out and vote. Don’t let your grandfather’s political party continue to sell Canada to the highest bidder.
Ideals are very important to the shaping of society.
In fact, that are more important than bombings or armies or guns.
And this is because ideas are capable of spreading without limit.
They are behind all the choices we make.
They can transform the world in a way that governments and armies can not.
Fighting for liberty with ideas makes more sense to me than
fighting with guns or politics or political power.
With ideas, we can make real change that lasts.
– Ron Paul
Modern society treats all ideas and opinions as valuable and worthy regardless how absurd so we don’t hurt individuals’ feelings. And because our children are taught not to call bullshit on wildly idiotic and unimaginably stupid ideas they are allowed to exist a persistent realm of fairy tales free from the bother of the real world and the deep logic and critical thinking skills required to navigate and understand it. Think sheep.
