Troubled People Changing The World

On my Post-Scarcity Warriors Page a person left the following comment regarding the death of Aaron Swartz:

"It is a sick world when people who are mentally not right have to fight for the rights of everyone on the planet!" - Gerhard Groenewald-Loots

Let's consider this more deeply. Our world is highly disturbing, this is the problem.

So-called "normal" people are largely insensitive to the horror, which means they have no real interest in changing the world, whereas sensitive people who are depressed they feel the pain of our flawed civilization very sharply. It is all about the pain of incompatibility. People who don't fit in with the world are compelled by their mental disturbances to change the world. We need to redefine what is "normal," we need to give more support to the people who are maladjusted, but not a type of support which decrees their maladjustment is bad. Maladjustment to civilization is valid, we merely need to react in a very constructive manner regarding the feeling of being unbalanced. Let's avoid suicide or apocalypse.

Why is out world so depressing? Almost constant lies by the authorities are one major source of depression. If we examine some prosecution aspects regarding Aaron's suicide, we can uncover depressing deception by the authorities. Linus Torvalds wrote a popular post on G+, on January 17th, which has 1,037 shares and 3,067 +1s (at the time of this blog-post). Linus described the "particularly offensive" lies of Carmen Ortiz, the U.S. attorney for Massachusetts responsible for handling Aaron's case, regarding two of her statements, one from July 2011 and one from 17th Jan 2013.

The July 2011 statement was not apparently written directly by Carmen Ortiz but it originated from her office therefore it's safe to say it reflects her opinion at that time. Below is an excerpt from the G+ post where Linus exposes the lies of Carmen Ortiz. Clearly there is a contradiction in the following two quotes by Carmen Ortiz and her office:

"At no time did this office ever seek – or ever tell Mr. Swartz’s attorneys that it intended to seek – maximum penalties under the law."

And July 2011 (as posted by itself):

"SWARTZ faces up to 35 years in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, restitution, forfeiture and a fine of up to $1 million"

Read Carmen's full statement and her Attorney's Office Press Release if you need to confirm the above two quotes. Linus Torlvalds has more to say, there are also plenty of interesting comments too. Have read and share the truth. Let's make our world less depressing.
