Outwitting your betters, vol. 291

Via JD Tuccille, the following interesting segment from one Jonathan Corbett:

Now he certainly seems to have a huge blind spot of apparent faith that the system was ever actually about protecting us, but if he keeps on target and is honest about what he finds, he'll figure that out eventually anyway.  In the meantime, it cannot hurt to get this in front of as many people as possible.

I especially liked the out-of-the-blue Gunwalker reference / comparison.  Again:  his thinking is ultimately flawed because he intimates that we actually do need thugs with guns to protect us...from thugs with guns, but if he can call out the system's cynical exploitation for what it is, then a useful purpose is yet served.  And again:  if he's paying attention, he'll catch up.  (And if not:  we certainly haven't lost anything.)

Mike, David:  your work does matter, see?   :-)
