There have been examples of publicly-funded Catholic schools taking students to anti-abortion rallies, of gay students being bullied. In March, the most senior Catholic cleric in English Canada wrote warning that “social trends antagonistic to the Gospel gather strength” and that Pride Month should be dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Why do school systems based around an institution that embraces such teaching continue to receive public funding?

The hacker lifestyle is a gonzo lifestyle, by definition.
We go out and do the weirdest shit just to see if we can. Cracking? Sure. Dumpster diving for parts? Absolutely. Building a HERF gun to see what it takes to make one? Probably not the best idea, to be honest, but sure. Taking over a hotel's television network to show My Little Pony on every internal channel? Let's do this.
It's easy to imagine Hunter S. Thompson as a hacker. He may not have been a hacker, but he definitely had the "Fuck it, let's do something weird!" thing down.
hard agree. the degree of privilege (and lack of self-awareness) is next level in this one.
just to clarify, i wasn't involved in this! it was posted to reddit (r/niceguys).
A rather insightful comment on Hacker News (yes they do exist)
<< Google, somehow, strikes me as this vision of humanity... It simply lumbers forward, doing its thing. It is to be modeled as a threat not because it is malign, but because it doesn't notice you *exist* as it takes another step forward. Threat modeling Lovecraft-style: entities that are alien and unlikely to single you out in particular, it's just what they *do* is a problem. >>
