This is an argument to simplify the security infrastructure.

I've been thinking about this issue for years and the only two answers I can think of are "benevolent dictatorship" or "Friendly AI".

Imagine you're in an elevator with eighteen other people. Everyone has a hand grenade. What's the security solution? Get out of the elevator.

Chris Phoenix, CRN

Michael Deering, it's worse than that--everyone is immune to their own hand grenade. So obviously, the solution is to set yours off first, before anyone else can pull the pin on theirs. Right? And if everyone thinks that way, you don't have time to get out of the elevator.

Phillip, how would you simplify the infrastructure? You either have to allow bad products, forbid good products, or allow some security breaches.
