I never said your heart isn't in the right place. Your altruism, however, is naively misplaced, and you're mixing up cause and effect, again.

The basis of encroaching terrorism / government suppression is not a creeping Big Brother tendency without a stimulus. As long as people keep flocking to urban centers of economic activity, unpleasant security problems and solutions are going to emerge. I know you'd rather ten guilty persons went free than one innocent person unjustly incarcerated or executed. Blame the fecundity and greed of fellow ground apes who have no fucking bearing on the reins of government other than that they're stupid and they vote. I know you'd rather see some more direct biological competition, but you're just seeing all this potential as something else, something artificial.
