“ “Life would be so much easier if we only had the source code.” — Hacker proverb ”
“ To kill for murder is a punishment incomparably worse than the crime itself. Murder by legal sentence is immeasurably more terrible than murder by brigands. Anyone murdered by brigands, whose throat is cut at night in a wood, or something of that sort, must surely hope to escape till the very last minute. There have been instances when a man has still hoped for escape, running or begging for mercy after his throat was cut. But in the other case all that last hope, which makes dying ten times as easy, is taken away for certain. There is the sentence, and the whole awful torture lies in the fact that there is certainly no escape, and there is no torture in the world more terrible. ”

“ Soa incoerente o fato de outras substâncias entorpecentes, como o álcool e o tabaco, serem não só permitidas e vendidas, gerando milhões de lucro para os empresários dos ramos, mas consumidas e adoradas pela população, o que demonstra também que a proibição de outras substâncias entorpecentes recreativas, como o THC, são fruto de uma cultura atrasada e de política equivocada e violam o princípio da igualdade, restringindo o direito de uma grande parte da população de utilizar outras substâncias ”

Antigo provérbio indiano.
There have been many measures taken to try to turn the educational system towards more control, more indoctrination, more vocational training, imposing a debt, which traps students and young people into a life of conformity… That’s the exact opposite of [what] traditionally comes out of The Enlightenment. And there’s a constant struggle between those. In the colleges, in the schools, do you train for passing tests, or do you train for creative inquiry?
Passing tests doesn’t begin to compare with searching and inquiring and pursuing topics that engage us and excite us. That’s far more significant than passing tests and, in fact, if that’s the kind of educational career you’re given the opportunity to pursue, you will remember what you discovered.”
