Kent Crispin finally came to his senses and described
government thusly:

  D.C. and the Pentagon, right?

> Certain of the members sport a messiah or a martyr complex.  It is

  Yes, like Park Rangers with Uzi's, and Postal Service swat teams.

> It's all so predictable.

  As Tim May constantly reminds us, in regard to the cypherpunk list

  Glad to see that you're coming around, Kent, and finally recognizing
the government for the insider cult it has become.
