On Brexit

welcome to my ~~~~~~~~ homepage

I am currently lamenting the awful treatment of Richard Stallman by the army of useful idiots who chatter among themselves before yelling concertedly in one or two directions to bully some person or organisation on someone else's behalf.

There are times when you have to look deeper into someone's words or ideas to get rewards from them - even if the reward is a more certain refuation of someone's beliefs, there's often still a lot to learn in the process.

Not that I think Stallman will be silenced in any way, and I selfishly hope the experience focuses his thoughts on ways to tackle the increasingly pervasive power of idiots online. We would all benefit from that.
