The British and the Americans are too stubborn and individualistic to protect others as a whole.

@msaunders intresting story am sure the are lots of doing this in stealth mode, not to mention state agency's etc.

What's the solution, am suggesting the to push horazontalism. This artical is pushing statist legal solutions, a historical dangerous default path to take and very subject to worshipping outcomes.

Am tempted to say do both but they tend to push against each other?

Thinking about facebook. On the subjects i have been talking about for the last 10 years.

Its interesting that people keep asking for god (#failbook) and then asking for a nicer god (ethical #dotcons) noboady is asking for atheism (the #openweb) aha its a religious problem now i understand the schisms.
