Being a technical idealist in almost, if not, all the time, I’ve always
been undervaluing politics. And unfortunately in this world that we live
in, politics almost always have the greater influence than any technical
excellence that anybody can come up with on any day no matter how
good the latter is. So what do the users or consumers get in the end? A
piss poor solution that they would have to live with just because the
people with authority have their own interests or stakes to keep whilst
forsaking the betterment of the greater collective. Makes me sick to
my stomach.
