Is the U.S. Government Gunning for Computer Geeks?
January 15, 2013 in Uncategorized
I recently published a book called the Principles of Order: Can We Ban Guns AND Keep Liberty? on Amazon. In that book I explain why I
believe that if there is ever another revolution, it will not be fought with guns but with computers. The reason is simple: With the advanced technology our nation now possesses, guns are fairly obsolete. I recently came across a video on The Young Turks about Aaron Swartz, one of the co-founders of Reddit, recently found dead an apparent suicide. The reason for his relates to this topic in a very surreal way so I felt I had to share.
The host Cenk Uygur makes a passionate argument in the video that Swartz had become the target of our Government because he is a computer geek who knows how to hack into systems–this seems to be an area of great concern to the government for people like this pose a unique danger? Why?
This is particularly disturbing. A free government would not fear such issues and people, but one intent on tyranny certainly would. If the argument is right, this could only mean that our own government is preparing, as the conspiracy theorists claim, to put a total lock on liberty.
I cannot say if this is the case or not, but the evidence appears to be mounting.
I only mention all of this because if that is the case, we have done it to ourselves. We have allowed Law to overpower principle in our society.
Unless we find the will to return to being a nation governed by principles, as George Washington recommended though not in those exact words, we will undoubtedly find ourselves ruled more like Soviet Russia than America.
Here is the video which is direct and bold.
As always, I welcome and appreciate comments and will respond to all…unless the government takes me into custody for writing my book.
