In the essay above, I did note a thread of pro-Establishment
correctness running all through the rhetoric. Does he really buy
is he just protecting his tenure in the Corporate Suits hierarchy,
is he tying a pork chop around the necks of a few inconvenient
in hope that policymakers will at least play with them?
Only Bruce Schneier knows the real Bruce Schneier Facts. If I had
guess, I would say all three. One thing we do know: You won't
him consorting with the peasants.
The essay illustrates he understands how political and social power
affects technology and science.
That knowledge can cut both ways.
Here's a little bit of humor slander about him...
