First-world go fuck yourself.
« on: March 10, 2013, 02:36:30 am »
We are backsliding into garbage, that's what.

What the fuck do people think it means when they have all the resources, have the right to break your shit if you don't use it the way they tell you to and have the right to prevent others from making shit that works the way you want it to?

Instead of technological advance leading to better products for cheaper ---> better quality of life, the gates have been all but slammed shut and now it's about making shit you have to keep paying to use, and legislation robbing you of your last, remaining power: the power to purchase whatever the fuck you want and NOT buy shit that fucks with you.

I'm talking about Cinavia. I'm talking about the fact that it's now a felony punishable with 5 years imprisonment if I root my goddamned phone again.

Am I seriously whining about not being allowed to watch a goddamned movie someone ripped for my kid? Am I pissing tears out my asshole about some privileged bullshit like being forced to keep bloatware on my pretty, little smartphone?

YOU'RE GODDAMNED RIGHT, I AM.

By why? It's their shit, right? If I don't like it, just don't buy it, right?

FUCK THAT.

What they are robbing now is a concept. This is really difficult for others to wrap their minds around on a day-to-day basis but what they've summarily deleted from the marketplace is a concept whose existence is an amalgamation of pride in ingenuity, quality, fairness, competition, excellence and work-ethic.

There's a reason nobody buys French cars. French-made automobiles are the cheapest shit, poorly-designed and rife with mechanical problems and dangerous design issues. We are being forced to buy French-made cars...and then being forced to spend an additional $10/month on a new key to run the thing. We're being sold single-ply toilet paper and told we'll have to pay $5 to get the other ply. We're shelling out $10 for crappy fast-food and being made to pay $20 to shit it back out because until it hits the sewer, they still own it and you need their fucking permission to let it pass through your fucking asshole.

And we fucking pay.

You thought the increasing wage-disparity was the endgame? That ain't the endgame. Eventually, even THAT reaches its saturation point. The endgame is this: once they own all the shit they possibly can, they start collecting rent on your shit. They start collecting a usage-fee on the very manacles they put on you in the first fucking place. If you don't like it, go move to Russia, you privileged cunt.

It's time to start breaking things. Oh please, oh please, when do we start breaking things?

HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR FREE MARKET NOW?
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

I like the basic concept of this.  I think it is most obvious with software.  You don't actually buy software, you buy a license to use it, and that is bullshit.  It's the same thing with the phone.

Fortunately there are free options in many cases, and by free I mean free as in speech, not free as in beer.  In phones the free option is the linux phone.

It's time to start breaking things. Oh please, oh please, when do we start breaking things?

Start? I've been fucking shit up since before I could walk. The most important things to break are rules. Break them all. Break them often. Let it become a habit so that, when presented with a rule, your immediate reaction is not "I must/must not do this" it's "how do I get round that?"

They sell a rule like it means you can't or you must.

What rules actually are is how they'd like you to behave. In some bullshit utopia they invented in their heads.

Who the fuck is this on DS or HFT or whatever? This whole board is going to turn into the vaccine thread.

"Smallpox had been eradicated because of vaccines."

"must be all the mercury and formaldehyde dumbing these ppl down. or maybe they just don't want to admit that they are at risk for the same diseases. its quite difficult looking at your own faults in the mirror for some ppl....how can you seriously trust anything the govt or BIG PHARMA is telling you when THEY are the ones profiting off of your illnesses?? wake up ppl!!"

You really ought not consider a reverse-mortgage, Grandma. They wanna take the last thing you HAVE, Grandma. Oh, and you get to pay them interest coming and going, buying and selling.
