If you're working to defeat tyranny, to bring freedom,
through coding for users, speaking with others or in public,
writing books, campaigning, running cryptocurrency nodes,
however the ways... you're already living by the sword,
and risking death by doing so. People only have so many
years, and at the end of the day, AP is just another sword
roaming around, humanity will survive at some level either way.
Who could argue that it's not already among the set of
potential futures. Or that there's not already a lot of dying
going on. Or that one could really retain control, or control
anyone's use, of any particular sword. People, Govts, and
Corps already hire mercenaries and hitmen in the real world.
Seems that by natural progression eventually someone
somewhere will make the decision to up the game.
Those who aren't in the game, not high profile making waves,
just living their workaday life, won't have anything to worry about,
certainly not more than the odds of dying from any other cause.
Nor will anyone be foolish enough to press their luck that far.
These types of things are always rogue, and outside our
control once the ideas become known. So why bother worrying?
Just live.
