This Week’s Quote: “The people terrorists kill are not the targets; they are collateral damage. And blowing up planes, trains, markets or buses is not the goal; those are just tactics. The real targets of terrorism are the rest of us: the billions of us who are not killed but are terrorized because of the killing. The real point of terrorism is not the act itself, but our reaction to the act. And we’re doing exactly what the terrorists want.” —Bruce Schneier

29:10 – Idiot Extraordinaire: Hillary Clinton

This Week’s Quote: “When someone gets something everyone is due by right, they are not privileged because others did not get that something. Racism or some other form of discriminatory bias may well be at work, but it’s not a ‘privilege’ to be treated civilly. Let’s see to it everyone is so regarded.” —Jim Babka

46:02 – Idiot Extraordinaire: The FBI (double-hit!)

This Week’s Quote: “It’s impossible to overstate how bonkers the idea of sabotaging cryptography is to people who understand information security…Use deliberately compromised cryptography, that has a back door that only the ‘good guys’ are supposed to have the keys to, and you have effectively no security. You might as well skywrite it as encrypt it with pre-broken, sabotaged encryption.” —Cory Doctorow

This Week’s Quote: “The government enforces a monopoly over the production and distribution of its alleged ‘services’ and brings violence to bear against would-be competitors. In so doing, it reveals the fraud at the heart of its impudent claims and gives sufficient proof that it is not a genuine protector, but a mere protection racket.” —Robert Higgs

31:06 – Idiot Extraordinaire: The RIAA

This Week’s Quote: “Our trend in copyright law has been to enclose as much as we can; the consequence of this enclosure is a stifling of creativity and innovation. If the Internet teaches us anything, it is that great value comes from leaving core resources in a commons, where they’re free for people to build upon as they see fit.” —Lawrence Lessig

34:41 – Idiot Extraordinaire: Barack Obama

This Week’s Quote: “All loans, in the eyes of honest borrowers, must eventually he repaid. All credit is debt. Proposals for an increased volume of credit, therefore, are merely another name for proposals for an increased burden of debt. They would seem considerably less inviting if they were habitually referred to by the second name instead of by the first.” —Henry Hazlitt

27:43 – Idiot Extraordinaire: Greenpeace

This Week’s Quote: “Genetically modified organism (GMO) foods are feared and hated by environmentalists and the public alike. Yet the scientific assessment of GMOs is remarkably different. Every major scientific evaluation of GMO technology has concluded that GMOs are safe for human consumption and are a benefit to the environment.” —Ramez Naam
