Damn Paul... hella good. Sysadmins with root know they have access to all
the information, but they do not look unless it is necessary. Maybe that is
the big difference. I think it was  the section on Inherent Rights vs.
Acquired Privileges. The bad guys think "inherent rights", and hack into a
machine to get the acquired privileges they need.

Someone like Edward Snowden starts out with acquired privileges, and
invokes the greater good clause to liberate the data that the public should
have access to.

1992. Wow. This is pretty much what Ellsberg did in the 70s, but in hard
copy form.

This would be an interesting post to dump on g+. Imagine what might come
out of the woodwork :)

I think I was one of the first (not "the" first, of course) people who
used the tagline:

"I love my country, but I fear its government."

        What is truly cool is that this is twenty-two years old.

        Sorry about your Seahawks Paul...
