Mike Hearn's FUCK THESE GUYS in context

Earlier today, Mike Hearn, BItcoin developer, said:
Recently Brandon Downey , a colleague of mine on the Google security team, said (after the usual disclaimers about being personal opinions and not speaking for the firm which I repeat here) - "fuck these guys":
https://plus.google.com/108799184931623330498/posts/SfYy8xbDWGG
I now join him in issuing a giant Fuck You to the people who made these slides. I am not American, I am a Brit, but it's no different - GCHQ turns out to be even worse than the NSA.
I will now repeat what I said here as well:
The people who do business as "government", whatever "government" they claim to work for, are criminals.
Some of them don't know they are (the authoritarians who obey orders, just doin' m'job types, these are the kinds of people who executed Jews on command in Nazi Germany), and some of them are fully aware of the criminality of their behavior (the psychopaths a.k.a. social dominants according to Bob Altemeyer's taxonomy, who give the orders and come up with the lies to make the orders appear virtuous).
We know they are deliberately malevolent because they routinely do things that would be called "crimes" (implying deliberate malevolence) if any one of us did them. We know they are acting either under the delusion that when they perpetrate evil it's virtuous, or under the full knowledge that when they conspire to perpetrate evil they are guilty but they just don't give a shit. "I'm really good at killing people", said the president lately... this does not strike me as an innocent moral confusion, but rather as psychopathy.
We should therefore not be surprised when they perpetrate abominable acts such as violating private property to gain access to information that would have never been volunteered by their victims. In fact, this is one of the most minor transgressions they could perpetrate. We're talking about people who have conspired to mass murder brown people abroad, and cage millions of non-violent black and white people at home. They will cage or murder you if you resist or disobey them. And sometimes they will murder you for sport, as Al-Awlaki's nephew found out, and the thirteen year old boy discovered, both seconds before their deaths.
The question that you must ask yourself is: at which point do you stop believing in the virtue and authority of obviously malevolent and delusional people? Does it even matter whether what they do is "illegal" or "legal", when they get to define that, through writing their magical pieces of paper, and through their own trampling of their own promises in said papers?
Ask yourself that question today, because tomorrow it might be too late -- you might be dead. You need to remember that these people are willing to murder you if you disobey or resist them. That is what they do, they do it righteously, they will do whatever the fuck they want to increase their power over you, you must never forget that. Start asking yourself how that could possibly be justified, so you can discover it cannot.

Longtime Bitcoin visionary Mike Hearn anticipated fork 7 month ago, witnessing increasingly dictatorial and rushed decisions by ABC developers

Mike Hearn in an AMA on btc 7 month ago about Bitcoin Cash:
"... Some things are being overlooked. If history repeated itself that would be a crying shame.
Hard forking is an implementation mechanism, not a governance mechanism. Governance is a process, and often an institution, for arriving at a decision. A hard fork is just the software event that makes it real.
I note with some alarm that Bitcoin Cash is planning a timed hard fork in just one month, with no attempt to measure support or whether people are ready or even agree. The content is not going to be controversial in this community now, but a lot of organisations would find it hard to schedule and test a software upgrade on one month's notice. There's a risk that miners who do upgrade will be split onto a minority chain by accident even if everyone intends to upgrade, and have to roll back, making them even more conservative than they already are.
Governance was one of the causes of the split and so needs the most analysis and change. But I'm afraid I'm not seeing that at the moment. Multiple competing implementations is what we tried with Bitcoin XT and it didn't work. Ultimately the internet is a lawless place, and a sufficiently committed group will always be able to wipe out any nodes they disagree with to prevent people from expressing their opinions. Formalised governance mechanisms can help avoid this by coordinating a group decision in ways that can't be so trivially attacked, and if you look at Ethereum, they have the Ethereum Foundation and other ways to do it. I think that would help a lot.
Right now I don't see anything that would prevent a repeat of what happened before, especially given the underlying psychological causes of the Core/Cash divide."

So that's nice I guess. Of course, this says nothing about their fiat balance, but it's a slightly more reassuring followup after recent panic about KYC.
