Here's a clue, you can't ride an exponential growth curve on a finite
planet forever, but yet all the politicians think that GDP should go
up forever, no.  Growth, without purpose, is cancerous.  Without a
knowledge of the political issues, you're just another opportunist
wanting to "keep the party going" (at the expense of the whole).  The
hackerspace ethos is a major political and economic innovation, so
fuck your ignorance, "brah".

I smash dumbasses.
