La technologie: l'allié de la population contre la répression

Ever since my friend Erwin Straus wrote a book called Basement Nukes in the 1970s, in which he argued that the average upper-middle-class American family could build a small nuclear device, I’ve been optimistic that government will not be able to stop progress. And that’s a good thing, because technological advances have always been to the greater benefit of the average man over those in power.

The greatest example of this is the invention of gunpowder, which made it possible for the average peasant to kill the heavily armored thugs – knights – who were dominating them.
