NSA Monitored Calls of 35 World Leaders

Ragzouken Re:Who's surprised? (310 comments)

Yeah I think this a lot. The US has a government, their job is to govern, and yet it's always news when the government governs in a way the people don't like. And here I am just like HELLO, they're a government: it's their job to govern things JEEZ.

Actually being an adult means you are free to make the call about whether you can have your own way or not - it's children who must be blindly obedient to their parents.

Crowdsourced Finnish Copyright Initiative Meets Signature Requirement

Ragzouken Re:U.S., cough, international pressure much? (166 comments)

Maybe there are good reasons to give people control over intellectual property, but I don't get why anyone would think that's obvious or some inherent right or entitlement. Why should making something prevent other people from making the same thing with their own resources? When you introduce an idea into popular culture you are planting a seed on someone else's soil. Then, like Monsanto, you are saying "you aren't allowed to use this plant without my permission, or in ways I don't approve of". It clearly doesn't have the same strength as physical property, and I can't take it as obviously something a creator is entitled to.

Crowdsourced Finnish Copyright Initiative Meets Signature Requirement

Ragzouken Re:U.S., cough, international pressure much? (166 comments)

no one wants to control people who create things; nobody is trying to force the people who create things to do anything. they just want to remove the control over people who reproduce what other people have created.

Ask Slashdot: How To Deliver a Print Magazine Online, While Avoiding Piracy?

Ragzouken Re:DRM Free (298 comments)

The simplicity is appealing, but you're just wrong. Some people will buy if they can't pirate. Some people will buy if pirating is difficult. Some people will buy if buying is easy. There are all kinds of people out there.

Snowden Claims That NSA Collaborated With Israel To Write Stuxnet Virus

Ragzouken Re:No shit (491 comments)

Who cares if you knew it all along. Any time there's news everyone and their mother comes out of the woodwork to say they already knew and how can anyone be surprised yada yada yada. Hearing it corroborated in this way has an actual impact, unlike slashdotters telling us they told us so.

According To YouGov Poll, Snowden Support Declining Among Americans

Ragzouken Re:Maybe (658 comments)

The proper channels do not work. There is no "right" way to be a whistleblower. The systems are in place to define any possible effective attempt to whistleblow something this big as "wrong".
