I have very big questions about his death. I'm not convinced it's a conspiracy but with a former Secretary of State blatantly denying that she tried to blame a "video" for the attacks on our embassy (when all you have to do is look at CNN/ABC/NBC archives to see it) - I'm convinced we can't the lengths to which the politicians will continue to steal our freedoms for their control.
Few realize that the GOP and DEMS both passed a measure (NDAA) that gives the govt the right to indefinitely detain Americans without cause. IT ALREADY PASSED.
So my call and challenge to my fellow tech brothers is to BE AARON SWARTZ. The founders of this country faced similar infringements where government was trying to regulate EVERYTHING they bought, sold and buried. People gave their lives knowing that their children could live in a world where government wouldn't control everything they did.
You don't like politics? Fine. Don't complain when suddenly another 10% of your paycheck is gone (which will have to be done in 2 years to pay for $10 Trillion of debt being racked up) or worse - when your "speech" is no longer free, but the government has control to shut down the internet to stop discussion on something they want to hide or pass.
You don't think it's already being done? Then get educated. And get busy.
