Of no little importance to a prince is his choice of ministers, who are good or bad according to the prince’s intelligence. In forming an opinion about a ruler’s brains, the first thing is to look at the men he has around him, for when they are adequate and loyal he can be considered prudent, because he recognizes those who are competent and keeps them loyal. When they are otherwise, the prince is always to be estimated low, because the first error he makes, he makes in choosing advisers.

Verizon to share personal data 
Monday, March 9, 2009, 08:34 AM - techFoo
Gizmodo has an article about this.

From the comments on the story come boiled down instructions...



- Sign in to the Verizon website.
- On the red bar near the top, hover over "My Verizon."
Click on "My Profile."
(Don't go over to the sub-menu that pops up.)
- In the second section down, under Phone Controls, there's a link to
"View/Edit Privacy (CPNI) Settings." Click on that.
- Voila! Click on the button that says "Don't share my CPNI."
Remember to hit the save button before you leave.

The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

It stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there’s someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master.

~The Fountainhead, 1943
