I might offer that the US constution doesn't really extend its
rights to foreign nationals in other countries, but that's really
OpenBSD, the OS, doesn't not protect or suppress rights. Nor does
it censor things.
Therefore this topic is deeply off topic for the list.
You might defend that the DARPA funding stuff affects the project,
but so far, I've seen few facts and new information, and mostly just
people spewing their beliefs and views about 1) the US, 2) the US military
3) current germans cast as members and participants in a 58-year gone
political party and rampant mob.
Do you have actual ascribable information about the funding and
it's cut or lack thereof?
Do you have an issue running OpenBSD?
If the answer to these is "no", then take it to the bsd.slashdot.org area.
