Not saying that these facts are somehow related ......

> Debian 9 is dedicated to the project's founder Ian Murdock, who passed away on 28 December 2015.

Surely you're not thinking it might be possible that maybe there could be some NSA access code in systemd. I mean, that's just crazy.

And I'm sure the government would never consider taking someone out and making it look like an accident, just for refusing to do their bidding.

I thought he was being very careful not to insinuate any such thing. :)

But seriously, in a day and age where 90% of what the mainstream media puts out is to push a narrative or even flat out lies and you have to go to sites that used to be considered fringe or kook sites to get real news, when the NSA is monitoring every electronic communication made, and formerly responsible people are flat out advocating the overthrow of the existing US government; what can you accept at face value?
