Have no computers running the OS they came with

22nd February 2022

Do you care about your rights?

It's a crucial question. A lot of people don't. Lots of people express passive attitudes such as:

I get that some people just don't care about politics and want to "go with the flow". But the problem is with people like that is you can't really trust them. Well you can trust them to follow the path-of-least-resistance, but you can't trust them to do what is right.

Now at this time in our little planet's long history, society is undergoing a transition to the age of computers. And we ought to be thinking about what that computerised society should look like. So I would like to add one more thing to that list of passive attitudes:

When I say "re-program" I mean, at the very least, to change or re-install the Operating System. The OS is the biggest piece of software on a computer so being able to change that is fundamental.

Of-course many computers make it difficult or impossible to change the operating system. In this case don't buy it. Capitalism and open-markets gives tech companies the freedom to do whatever they want. But it also gives you the freedom to choose how you spend your money.

If you want to be a Technologically Advanced Human, aim to have no computers in your house that run the OS build they came installed with. Freedom is like a muscle; it needs to be exercised.
