Brave New World

[I wrote this little silliness more than a year ago. Didn't find an appropriate time to post it (it served mostly as critique of the computerized semantics I usually like so much). Now, with Sweden (where I live) on the brink of legalizing a little Echelon of our own (or their own, as it were), it seems as good a time as any.]

.. Sometimes I wonder if what we do is just a fancy way of digging our own graves.
