  • Imagine Saudi Arabia in 10 + years.

    With all the weapons that they have also purchased from USA, with all the mutual agreements.

    Them being a non human right country, which had abused its own powers. The alliance that it had formed with Iran and China, despite their crimes towards human rights, just as well. We’re in for a hell of a future to deal with, after biden flies away with his golden parachute that is - probably in a far far away land.

    And trump supporters lunatics are going to increasingly think that trump is the solution.

    To hell with them all. And the grand court; what’s it going to do ? Cave in to the masses demands ? It’s a great feat of them, all on its own, to be complicit to all the things that has transpired thus far in the years we have endured without as much voicing their opposition to all of that which is sought to be immoral and unethical by all standards of maintaining human-rights.

  • Back in the day, when the government of Japan banned samurai schools, and prohibited so many dangerous weapons, the samurai got angry and revolted.

    Those samurais, on the other hand, who worked closely with the government or had willingness (or had leverage by working with them), created their own “spiritual” schools, teaching aikido, kendo, and practices of spirituality, peace, and finding one’s own path in life.

    But now Japan thrives ever so lively. And yet, the government now carries all that stigma after the ages of samurais had passed; and for good reasons, because they do oppress people and judge them unjustly in courts.

    Perhaps the sword may have not been the answer, but it is certainly not the solution either to dismantle all, including the good and the bad, for there are the protectors of peace- the sword carriers, and those whom carry weapons and guns are no different.

    And there are those who are irresponsible and neglectful, and would drive opposition the opportunity for justifying radical changes. Then that radical change would be justified. Including the dismantling of weapons and their schools of thought.

    So is the case that had led to this women’s unfortunate circumstance.

    However, I will still carry the sword to death with me.

  • Imagine paying the same price for a car that lacks the technology of:

    • Smart screen

      • With heat resistant materials that are designed to resist high temperatures and still function properly (i.e in summer times)
      • With GPS features, and media access
    • But the screen still sucks because you can literally buy a magnet and stick your phone there, and still be able to do literally everything a smart screen car do.

    I mean id still buy it because I prefer cars that are not so impractical, but it’s a shame that it still costs practically the same.

    Conceptually, a smart screen sounds like a good idea, but the implementation is bad.

    The other links, which you described as irrelevant, were only a source of insight - in that it gives an idea about how each of these people seem to be getting a unique problem or issue, but then it is all boils down to some issues with the xorg configuration files, when you dig deeper into the forum article problems that they are facing, and what the people that answer them are suggesting them do.

    If the arch wiki is not helping you solve it then you can try the other options or escalate it to a maintainer, because those arch wikis are maintained by people that needs to be notified when there is inconsistencies or bugs or issues that are not solveable regarding xorg and xrandr.

    If you believe there is reason to suspect it is gnome/ mutter, and that you tested with i3; it doesn’t tell us much, as i3 uses mostly a windows manager from what I know, whereas gnome/ mutter use GUI’s and thus requires its own configurations for the display. But if you still believe it is exclusively gnome’s/ mutters fault, you can raise it up to Gnome, then.

  • Yeah, so what ?

    Do you know how Gnu / Linux makes money ?

    At some point it is not about individuals but big corporations that need their services, and they buy them.

    They should have built their business model as per their financial requirements from the outset then, if that was the problem for them.

    But that should not justify or excuse them for doing things that are immoral and unethical.

    Sounds more like a greedy approach than anything.

    If I was an ethical and moral CEO of Google, and sought it costly to maintain such a huge infrastructure for millions of people around the world that are using their services freely, I would have made measures to shut them down or close them, instead of maliciously inserting things and harvesting stuff from them.

    Then if they have such data, then they should be held accountable and responsible in the future for any damages as a result of their work processes, and that happened many times historically speaking. And any crime that happens, they either offer evidence or be complicit to hiding fugitives. Which alone is a process that will cost them alot, just having to do it, and cooperate w them any governmental party.

    If I get in trouble in the future, I sure would love to have Google assist me in proving that I was innocent, by providing evidence through data that it has. But would they be willing to do so?

    This is very interesting in a way to think about, as it shows where their weakness lies in their business model, and where they are strong.

    But it goes to show how monopolistic they are, and, if anything, neglectful to basic human rights. Where I’m from, privacy is a human right. So there are many dimensions to take into consideration here - but ultimately they are only a small aspect of this whole complex dimension to boot.

    Ultimately, it is their fault for not setting up their business model to meet up with their own financial requirements. And not ours.
