I Worry that Mr. Silverglate is Suffering Age Related Mental Issues

Otherwise how can he now no longer believe in freedom of expression for all.

As Ken White’s article illustrates it appears that he now believes only his free expression rights matter. So sad to see this from a person who I formerly admired due to there insistence on free expression for all. Now he appears to be climbing on the money making faux-outrage persecution complex tour that is so popular lately with wealthy privileged people.

Bad Design Practices from the Aviation Industry Ruin It for the Rest of Us

The aviation industry skimped on designing their altimeters by not including bandpass filtering to prevent interference from outside of their authorized operating band. Now it’s short sighted reckless drive for profit has caused so much economic disruption for the Telco’s that the FCC may have to double the regulatory burden on ALL electronic receiver manufacturers who use any radio band for any purpose including simple toys.

The aviation industry’s slowness in fixing altimeters may lead to the FCC cracking down on bad wireless receivers. In April, the FCC voted unanimously to launch an inquiry into poorly designed wireless devices that receive transmissions from outside their allotted frequencies.

The inquiry could result in new receiver regulations similar to the rules that already require wireless devices to transmit only in their licensed frequencies. “To avoid harmful interference, we typically have rules about how and when transmitters can operate,” FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said at the April meeting. “But wireless communications systems involve transmitters and receivers… so we need to rethink our approach to spectrum policy and move beyond just transmitters and consider receivers, too.”

Sadly Too Many Have Failed to Recognize the Reality

They are us. These oppressive laws are not built on a secular or rational foundation, they are entirely the product of peculiar religious beliefs of a minority that we’ve encouraged to flex and grow.

The situation is old, it’s been this way my whole 60+ years of life as explained to me before I was 10 years old by my American Baptist Minister Dad. He clearly taught me that many, sometimes a majority, of religious people want to have their peculiar beliefs forced on everyone else by government. We were Danbury style American Baptist so our faith included the absolute separation of church and state, unlike the regressive and oppressive majority of Baptists (southern & independent).
