46. The walled garden is comfortable, freedom is often uncomfortable
I'm always amazed as to how quickly people cede their freedoms for the sake of comfort. Not just in the digital realm, either.

I'm sure you've studied democracy and know that freedom requires responsibility. Our personal freedoms are very much tied to freedom of information, among many things. If you want to maintain freedom over your information, you also need to take responsibility for it, rather than cede that responsibility to one of the largest corporations in the world.

They call it 'jailbreak' for a reason, you know.
