I'm a terrible liberal (wait, WTF the happened to Fark comment entry crap...?! Sorry, first time noticing it.) who wishes we were communist, but I must say that at least since the end of the Cold War the most dangerous person has the been the President of the United States.
 
In theory he could destroy the world in minutes. Commander in Chief + Cold War Nuclear Arsenal = potential Global Thermonuclear War 
 
/the only winning move is not to play

Really, some people deserve their place, but in terms of access to destruction capabilities vs time, the hands down leader is President Obama. Followed by Putin/Medvedev.

What a POS list.
 
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad should be listed, along with Putin and Kim Il Sung.  Also, Obama should be listed as well, because the USA is the most dangerous country in the world seeing as we preemptively attack more countries and drone strike more countries than anyone else. (not to mention false flag attack our own country for political reasons: 911)

The guy who originally made it up claimed that parallel timeline Mayans who crossed the Atlantic and did to Europe what the Europeans did to the Americas are going to break through the time barrier between universal iterations and take over or party with us or something.

Now.

Look at the difference between Internet access today, and 20 years ago. Were you even online? Probably not, the vast majority of people weren't. It was hard, required some special skills, and some expensive equipment that wasn't all that common, and it was slow and user-unfriendly. Now look at it.

The same is likely to happen with 3D printing. It's difficult and expensive today, the domain of geeks, just like the Internet was 20 years ago. But in 2032? It's possible that 3D printers will be as ubiquitous as inkjet printers are today.

2012-12-20 08:30:22 AM  
There are definitely more than 15 people around the world that could launch a nuclear weapon, so that would be an entire list right there. Many of these potential launchers we've never heard of, like Vasili Arkhipov.

Extraordinarily, we live in an era where such a launch is simply not a major threat at this time.

Meanwhile, only one person is mad enough to actually launch scud missiles filled with God knows what at cities the size of Chicago of his own citizens, and who has the connections to potentially start World War 3 if he plays his cards right. That's your most dangerous person right there.

Random thought- does Iran's propensity for committee leadership lead to more evil results? I'm thinking of Kennedy's ability to face down an epic three hour demand from all of our top Defense officials demanding we start nuking Moscow in wake of the Cuban Missile crisis. If that had been left to a simple majority vote, we'd probably all be dead by now.

The only thing the Wiki Weapon will accomplish is that 3D printers will be heavily regulated, meaning anything they're programmed to create must first pass a government e-review before proceeding. Which of course opens the way for a lot more than guns to be banned from the process. Every manufacturer in the country will make a case for why people can't make this or that.

Could be pretty tough, actually. Cody Wilson should be on there, along with John Brennan. After that, I guess Grover Norquist is economically dangerous (seems to be giving that pant load too much credit though, IMO).

Rupert Murdouck seems like a lock (although that may be more of a case where he can no longer control the monster he's created-- see his calls for gun control completely ignored). It's tough to argue that people that can't get elected into positions of power are legitimately "dangerous," so that leaves Mittens/Newt/Santorum out. The Koch brothers are definitely making America worse on the state legislative level, but does that rise to global danger? Paul Weyrich and ALEC seem to want to kill democracy in America, which would almost certainly endanger the stability of the world, so he's probably a lock.

Who else? And how do we define "white"? Is Putin?

Hambali should be on there if he wasn't in prison.

Hambali's vision was (and presumably remains) to unite Southeast Asia under an Islamic banner, by means of violent overthrow of the region's existing governments. Hambali's Islamic "super-state" would encompass Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, the Philippines, Cambodia and Thailand.

If you think 9/11 seemed like a "failure of imagination" on the part of U.S. intelligence agencies and policy makers, then the failure to focus on Hambali can only be due to an apocalyptic lack of imagination

Although the odds are pretty daunting, Hambali's ambitious plan would, if successful, create a full-fledged superpower under the control of extremists just like bin Laden.

According to the CIA world factbook, Hambali's super-state would have a population of nearly 420 million people (compared to the U.S. population of 280 million). The conscript base of men fit for military service would number well over 75 million, significantly higher than the U.S. The super-state would have a chokehold on shipping lanes in the South China Sea providing access from Asia proper to the Indian Ocean, enabling it to exert significant control over sea trade and airspace flowing to India, Africa and Australia.

There are a lot more dangerous people than are on that list...

That's okay: they'll have sixteen cores, 256MB L2 cache, and the ads will be managed by Asynchronous Screen Service (or ASS).

Printer drivers probably could still fit on a floppy if they were extracted from the tons of crap and useless vendor apps that accompany them.

There's this wonderful new invention called the Internet. You're using it right now. Another thing you can use it for is to seek out information. TV news is filtered to appeal to the people dull and passive enough to still watch it, so of course that's what you get on TV.

Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Except, he is in prison. Plus, China wouldn't just sit idly by while a new superpower develops on its doorstep. Especially one spreading a religious system that could subvert their power over their own people.

Unless they got all the fat development and natural resource contracts...


Well, besides the prison thing, he is a lot scarier than the people on that list. I mean, seriously, the woman who farked Petreus? She isn't scary, other than the fact that Petreus is a dumbass.

This list doesn't really have a lot of truly dangerous people included.

The dude from Cidudad Juarez I agree with, but then you leave off the rest of the Cartel lords... and no Brazilians?

Imajellydoughnut isn't on this list? No Kim Jong Ibeezillin'? No one from Russia / China? Israel? Merkel?

Oh I definitely agree with that. I suspect that they felt like they needed to include at least one woman on the list. To suggest she is "dangerous" is to suggest that poor little General Petreaus was no match for her wily feminine charms.

Also, the F-22 whistleblowers are heroes, not threats. And it was only a matter of time before China started building some decent aircraft. Too much money, too much political will, too many highly trained engineers, a healthy disdain for American IP law... If we weren't prepared for this development, we're in way worse shape than we ever imagined.

Forgive him, Macho. I'm sure Kevin, like most people, base their knowledge of Rush only on the clips they see on MSNBC and The Daily Show.

Alassra: This list doesn't really have a lot of truly dangerous people included.


I think they mean dangerous in the political sense, not actual lethality.

Like the guy with the 3D printed guns. His actions go beyond weapons.
Politicians, for generations, have staked their entire career on the idea that they can protect you from "things". They run on the promise that they can provide other things. Fear of scarcity is a fuel they depend on.

What happens when any thing is available to any one?
New markets, new concepts, and the death of the government(and corporate) grip on our means of production.

Elitist heads are gonna roll off that little plastic guillotine, and mr.gunprinter man is the herald of it.

/the f-22 whistleblowers called the emporers new 200 billion dollar clothing for what it was.
/Broadwell wrecked many political careers.
/Most of these people are quite dangerous in their own way.

As long as the US remains the consumer society it is, China would never attack. Countries generally don't fark with their biggest trading partner, especially then that relationship contains such a huge import/export gap in their favour.

dittybopper: doglover: What happens to gun control when anyone can download and print a gun with their computer?

Uh, for the price of time and use of a 3D printer of the kind good enough to make a usable firearm, I could buy a glock, a suppressor, a and some hollow points.

Now.

Look at the difference between Internet access today, and 20 years ago. Were you even online? Probably not, the vast majority of people weren't. It was hard, required some special skills, and some expensive equipment that wasn't all that common, and it was slow and user-unfriendly. Now look at it.

The same is likely to happen with 3D printing. It's difficult and expensive today, the domain of geeks, just like the Internet was 20 years ago. But in 2032? It's possible that 3D printers will be as ubiquitous as inkjet printers are today.


Sure, 20 years ago we had AOL and tons of morans were online. Much like today. But you didn't need any special skills to run AslOwL, just time.

That list so full of fail I don't know where to begin.
 
2012-12-20 10:11:47 AM  
So, it wasn't just me who read that list and wondered why some of them were listed. I'm not sure why the person who outed a General is more dangerous than the leader of Iran. Also, what makes a guy who puts the plans for firearms online dangerous, unless the author believes that all guns should be rounded up by the government and what the government doesn't want to be used by the police and military should be melted down? Also why is speaking up to protect military pilots a dangerous thing? Does the writer honestly have a love of one general and a hatred for military fighter pilots? Or does he just hate whistle blowers?

I'd have to put the leader of Iran and our federal congress and dangerous people. Though to be fair, while Iran is most likely to cause nuclear war, Congress scares me more because they have the ability to pass laws that can effect my pay check, my way of living, and since they can exempt themselves from those laws, they aren't going to give a damn about it.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad should be listed, along with Putin and Kim Il Sung.  Also, Obama should be listed as well, because the USA is the most dangerous country in the world seeing as we preemptively attack more countries and drone strike more countries than anyone else.

Still, Dooley and Yousef showed that random Islam haters can leave a huge impact.

No. What Yousef showed is that cavemen gonna caveman and blame whatever is convenient, even convincing top US officials of that narrative. Ideas and speech are not "dangerous". Idiots who are willing to kill people to satiate their bloodlust and use a story about an invisible father figure as an explanatory narrative ARE dangerous.

He also showed that numerous "respectable" people in the US government and academia, as well as many run-of-the-mill US citizens, can be turned into bed-wetting quislings who ignore the First Amendment - and merely by transparent falsehoods spread by the propaganda arm of Al-Qaeda.

it was a conspiracy, just not one cooked up by our government. Those 19 men didn't wake up the morning of September 11 and say, "Hey, let's steal some planes and smash them into some buildings, it will be awesome."

But nobody listens to him who already doesn't believe what he says.
He's not convincing anybody who was on the fence.
If anything, he drives people away.
He's just telling his faithful followers what they want to hear. Some of them would probably consider him too tame.

Err... uh... you might want to draw a timeline (in your case use a crayon) and then start plotting the the main historical events of the economic downturn. Then plot who was in office during those events. Notice that it was during the reign of George W. Bush when all that went down. An interesting point to note here is the Republicans blaming it on Obama, even though it happened before he cane into office. Then note on the timeline the things that Obama tried to do to fix it. Then note all the things the Republicans did to sabotage his efforts. Now you will note all the times that the Republicans claimed that Obama was not fixing the economy happen right after they sabotaged his attempts at fixing the economy.

Interesting, huh?

No go back to your GOP/NRA/KKK coloring books.

Yes, because anyone can make a gun with a 3D printer it questions the entire legality.

Unlike anyone making explosives at home.

Or cooking meth at home.

The only interesting thing was the gun production using 3D printing. It sounds like he's trying to make a plastic receiver and not succeeding since it only lasts 6 shots. The direct metal laser sintering process sounds more promising and if they make powders of high tech alloys like Aermet 300 and Liquidmetal that have tensile strengths of 300,000 to 500,000 psi.

Cursory knowledge of Milgram.

He lifted the veil, exposing certain ugly  aspects of psychology and human nature that have been used by the adept to control the unwitting for eons.

Interesting. Worthy of further study..
