Far more important than *random nonsense*, this is an essay by Ferdinand Thommes, known on the Internet as 'devil', the lead visionary for Siduction Linux.
Things are not going to get any better any time soon. I call it the 'taming of cyberspace', and I hope it never comes to be. This hits home with me in particular, because for many years I was required to use PGP encryption on a daily basis to protect the sensitivity of the data I handled, and Phil Zimmerman is one of my personal heroes. Read the underlined links in devil's post to get a background if you aren't familiar with this stuff.
Please sound off here. This cuts to the core of what we value; is it important to you?
