In The Peace War, by Vernor Vinge, the protagonists use low-power homebrew computing to fight an all-powerful world-dominating force who have outlawed all high-energy sources of power in order to prevent anyone from reproducing their superweapon.
I keep thinking there's no reason we can't do similar against stagnating powers like GooglyMan and Five Eyes Burgers and Fries.
Their fries, by the way, are not particularly good, at least around here. Soggy.
