Activists and Hackers

"Activists so often get burned out and frustrated because we're trying to achieve sustainability within a system that is inherently unsustainable." --Derrick Jensen

"I think that twelve hackers could take down the electrical grid of all of North America, a blackout lasting for months. That blackout itself would take out key components. Of course those in power would immediately start retooling, and because they have more resources than we do they'd eventually be able to come back online. We'd have to hit them again in the meantime." --Brian the Hacker, quoted by Jensen

I think the problem is that everyone wishes they were Lennon. But as life sets in, they discover they're McCartney.

That new kid is quite the character.
X: that, my friend, is my new philosophy of life. i wonder what mark david chapman would say about that?
Enjoyable. I have known kids like that and have argued with them and became best friends. Keep 'm coming Ben.
some of the best friendships are born in conflict.
