What happened to “the government can have my electronic speech when they pry it from my cold, dead fingers” ?
Many people fail to understand that incompetency knows no limits or bounds. It is alive and well in all human
institutions and activities, and each one of us is in fact incompetent in any number of ways.
Only knowledge and the ability to spot incompetency protect us from ourselves while simultaneously providing the only
defense possible against all types of harm that result systemically from anything that one person can do or create that
by design impacts other people.
unimpeded freedom and full-disclosure serve the interests of the people by spreading that knowledge and ability.
Crimes that result in awareness of other people's serious failures and incompetency, where such is actively harming
others, serve a useful purpose for society.
Computers could be said to be something of a crime against humanity to begin with. Crimes against computers pose an
unusually complicated ethics puzzle, and at times are clearly beneficial to everyone.
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
