Mr President, is this a war on hackers – or a war on people stopping hackers?

Re: They just don't care do they?

"The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt."

That's from Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. But she was a bat-shit crazy, right-wing loon, so I guess we'll be just fine.
