That's at least in the spirit, yeah. It's more "don't do something just because it's a rule, but it's worth it to understand the rule and then decide for yourself if it makes sense or not". The State has encoded a lot of good ideas into rules; they don't stop being good ideas just because they became rules.
@thegibson Yesterday i was at my mechanic's place, which is just a couple miles from Idaho, and one of the people who works at the shop comments "isn't it ironic that your vest says "don't comply" but you're wearing a mask anyway?
I give him a bit of a sideways look and just say "I put that on the vest years ago"
It's absurd to me that so many so-called free thinkers think that being independent means rejecting being told what to do by anyone whatsoever, for the sole reason of contrarianism.
Being a simple contrarian means still being easily controlled, but now getting to feel a haughty superiority about it.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
