 .. how??  and at what cost?

 "an eye for an eye" actually means, "if you take an eye, yours will
be taken".  most people sadly fail to understand that and use it as
justification for action that results in escalating retaliation and
ultimately wars.

 i believe that a better strategy is to make products that people who
know their shit will want to buy.  thanks to people now *knowing* that
there are spying back-door co-processors in the computers that they're
buying, they *will* jump at the opportunity to buy ones that are sold
as being "without spying backdoors" if they're available...

 ... but if you're running lying deceptive underhanded smear-tactics
campaigns there's actually a good chance that those people will look
at your products and go "wtf?? i can't trust these people *either*,
they're liars as well!!!"
