What is the proposal/arguments for anarchy? Do you have a link where I could learn what specifically it accomplishes?

My gut reaction is assuming anarchy implies chaos and survival of the fittest, but I'm assuming there are either more compelling arguments, my understanding is incomplete, or my understanding incorrect.

Is anarchy in this context referring to dissolving government?

"As many of you know, there's something about becoming a parent that concentrates the mind on long-term problems like climate change. It was the birth of my daughter that inspired me to launch this climate organization, in order to counteract the excessive polarization of this issue in the United States, and to find a conservative pathway forward. Yes, folks, a Republican climate solution is possible, and you know what? It may even be better." interesting ted talk on climate change

I think a bridge can be forged on many issues, but each group has too many stupid, pre-conceived notions about the other.

I disagree having lived and worked in UT. So many mormons, many of them well educated (I know several fairly conservative PhD's). Granted these are not the gun waiving uber trump supporters you probably imagine, but they are republican conservatives nonetheless. To some extent I also agree with some of the conservative principles (mostly economic in nature) though I consider myself a liberal (pro choice, voted for hilary etc).

"Lucky for me, we live in an age where people install npm packages like they’re popping pain killers."

Loved that.

"On any page that collects any data that you don’t want me (or my fellow attackers) to have, don’t use npm modules. Or Google Tag Manager, or ad networks, or analytics, or any code that isn’t yours."

This is all I was getting at. Not trying to troll, sorry if I came across that way. Thank you for the article!

every piece of proprietary software has the potential to be spyware/malware

While I agree that there is greater potential for proprietary software to be spyware/malware, there is nothing stopping open source software from being the same. I'd argue that the code base for most meaningful software is so large that few people could actually point to a piece of it and say, "that is spyware/malware". If the lead developer(s) wanted to make the open source software malicious, it may eventually get caught, and I think it has a higher likelihood of getting caught, but open sourced software is not a guarantee that it isn't malicious.

I'm assuming most people who work for tips would, if they aren't adequately compensated, quit. Personally, I think serving at fancy restaurants is actually one of the last skills that will be usurped by machines. On the whole, I think this type of legislation would help us as a country get away from the tipping nonsense.
