->''And dominating the skyline for miles around: the massive cube-shaped arcology of the B.O.R.G. Megacorporation. Once this area had been dubbed 'Silicone Valley' for its proliferation of feminoid assemblers and human enhancement surgeries -- now all had been ruthlessly assimilated by the one worldwide monopoly.

->''“Wealth aggregates and becomes political power. [[InherentInTheSystem Simple as that]]. ‘Corporation’ is just the most recent name for it. In the Middle Ages it was the Catholic Church.

The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means that as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution.” The "other extreme", he said "says that water is a foodstuff like any other, and like any other foodstuff it should have a market value." He added, "Personally, I believe it's better to give a foodstuff a value so that we're all aware it has its price, and then that one should take specific measures for the part of the population that has no access to this water."''

->It’s nice to know that I can live in a country where everyone agrees that net neutrality is a good idea and yet the FCC will probably undo it all anyway because the phone companies need to fuck you over jussssst a little bit more. I already have a mystery $11 surcharge on every goddamn Verizon bill. God forbid that pound of flesh be enough for these monsters.
