Aaron Swartz Still Wins
The righteous Jew died because he made himself a nuisance to the powerful.
This was what Swartz was working on leeching when he was charged with criminal trespass and file theft. He was possessed of a notion that certain things that are already public cannot be charged for, including case law. One of the ways lawyers keep the world confused and dependent on them is they way they zealously guard public property - case law in the United States.
I encourage you to see the recent documentary and you will be astonished at how much good one person did in his brief lifetime. Made me feel like I have never even really tried. Truly a great Neanderthal.
Did you know all my life I have thought men's lives are in vain because they can only flail harmlessly at the infinite branches of evil in the world? This kid was a genius who went straight to hack at the root. He did it from such a young age you have to wonder what inspiration he drew on inside to become so effective a force for good.
Nobody believes he took his own life. He is just another casualty of this administration which has piled up the bodies of its enemies like cordwood for eight years.
