Forget Barlow 

@dataKnightmare but those ideas led to the EFF, which is against surveillance complex iirc

@a_breakin_glass true, and the EFF fought some rightful battles over rights. On the other hand, the EFF is imbued with the same toxic "frontier" spirit, which sometimes puts it on the wrong side of things, for instance when they claim the "Code is speech".
I'm not saying the EFF is evil, nor that Barlow was. Only that things are way more complex than his simplistic myth.
