A Reminder to Purveyors of Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Those who want to use Linux, Unix, or any one 
| of the BSD distributions, are expected to know 
| how to read with comprehension, know how to 
| use a search engine â using actual arguments â 
| and, above all else, have some level of 
| patience.
| Todayâs average user has none of those skills.

Why I Want My Daughter to be a Hacker

,----[ Quote ]
| Letâs define what I mean by the term
| âhackerâ first.  There is so much FUD out
| there around this term.  Large controlling
| institutions want you to fear hackers, want
| you to think the hacker mindset is
| dangerous.  This could not be farther from
| the truth.  Hackers are simply empowered
| individuals that want to figure things out
| for themselves.  With hacker properly
| defined, letâs get to the meat, why I want
| my daughter to be a hacker:
| 1.  Hackers are not consumer lemmings â As
| large institutions continue to brainwash
| American citizens into becoming slaves to
| the systems theyâve created; hackers know
| that there is a life outside these systems
| of user dependence, a better life.
| Institutional dependence is literally
| killing us.  Our dependence on the
| institutional food system has left us
| disease ridden and physically incapable.
| Dependence on western medical systems is
| bankrupting us.  Our two major political
| parties both preach institutional
| dependence; one insists dependence on big
| government institutions, the other
| dependence on big corporate institutions.
| Hackers preach self and small community
| dependence. i.e. independence.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
