Drudge Report, for example, has a tendency of showing articles with interesting headlines. Click! And, there I am, at where the information is secure behind a paywall. No, I don't want to pay $19.99 per month to read the WSJ. Millions of Drudge readers don't have WSJ subs. Does the WSJ pay Drudge for that link, hoping to sell subs? Meanwhile, the interesting article content remains a mystery to me.

I hate this as well. I think I'm going to start adding the sites with paywalls to my adblocker so I hopefully won't have to see them at all.

"The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

You can past the NY Times paywall if you use private browsing.

"Yidn, shreibt un fershreibt"

"The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."
-Bomber Harris
