I was lying in bed staring at the ceiling in the dark and suddenly an idea popped into my head. World Order Governments already forced Purism to put backdoor spyware into my Librem 5, and put a gag order to Purism so if they tell anyone they all go to jail.
The reason I suddenly knew is because of how much all the humans can’t trust each other. They’re all weak in that way. The US government has to identify something like Purism that all the paranoid people buy from, so they can put those customers all on the list. It’s what they do.
Then, they can use the backdoor to record for my entire life every intimate aspect, such as when I farted.
Then they can upload all the years of all of my farts into a fart chart, and use AI on the data in the fart chart to categorize when I didn’t fart, which can be used to deduce my physiological response to when I watched a Japanese Anime with my brother a decade ago. Depending on whether I farted within 17 hours of seeing a cartoon depiction of a 600 year old female vampire take the form of an underage female kid, they can deduce whether I am on the danger list of the bad people.
And suddenly as I stared at the ceiling I knew that for them, building the fart chart was so imperative that in order to protect modern society they would have had to compel Purism to put fart detectors in all these devices that can monitor my body even from a range. For them it is worth compromising everything Purism stands for, just as long as they can detect those people who fart at the wrong time and thus have the correlation with the evil people in how we can predict they’re going to behave.
It’s a matter of keeping people safe – life and death. They don’t care about Purism’s mission of technology toys.
And once I realized it, and how it had to be, I wanted to post on the Purism forums that even though I’m not supposed to know – and I made it up – I know about the fart detectors you guys were forced to put into these things, to compromise your mission for secure or user controllable devices. It was inevitable.
And once I understood, that’s when I wanted to come here and post that, “I know,” to encourage that as a customer even though I know, I don’t care. I want Purism not to give up the ship. Keep things rolling. I’m still a happy custom even when I can deduce and know about the secret fart detector. You shouldn’t have to carry the guilt about that.
Really, it’s the government who is addicted to their fart power who failed. Purism should keep believing in themselves anyway and try to always keep going. I think it’s good to try, to the best extent possible, regardless of whether we win in the end.
