In a recent article from the opinion section of Huffington Post titled “Not Worried about Big Brother or Big Government” by John Pavley , Mr. Pavley explains how he is convinced two of his friends live in a constant state of unwarranted paranoia. The first is a gun enthusiast who lives a normal life as an upstanding citizen and family man, yet owns an unnecessary arsenal in the name of self-defense and has described himself to Pavley much like a hero in the midst of a cheesy Hollywood action film. The second friend is a crypto nerd, a self-described Anonymous who literally “tweets random links just to throw the bad guys off.” Pavley argues that both men share a stark similarity–unnecessary mania which is sure to draw attention from the wrong people be they acting on behalf of the government or not. Though both men haven’t actually committed crimes to attract the scrutiny of one of the government’s button men, Pavley thinks their behavior would eventually incriminate them regardless. In conclusion, Pavley states that he is for sensible gun safety and sensible intellectual property laws.
