"What we have here, with the bureaucrats trying to make rules for us, is analogous with the security problems faced by computing devices. Yes, we can have lots of very clever people trying to stop us do something, trying to guide us into the path of righteousness, but there are billions of us and we'll almost always find a way around the rules being imposed upon us. Thus computers still get infected with viruses and you can still get a toy with your Happy Meal in San Francisco." (12/04/11)
