The cruelty isn't the point. The cruelty is a means to an end. The cruelty is how you mobilize useful idiots to turn out to the polls and vote for the vast expansion of the wealth of a tiny number of people. The cruelty is how you get the turkeys to vote for Christmas:

Randolph Mantooth. What a name. Gives off much more of a "caveman rugged" vibe than a "we're off to have a tea at the Mantooths" vibe.

@pszNicx I've had good intentions to finally get into Skyrim, RDR, No Man's Sky, and probably a few others. Sadly, it'll take the next GTA to get me back to gaming.

@IcyShark that's another point. Apple says their passkeys will be exportable. I wonder if there's plans to allow more than one passkey authority
