That's all fine and dandy until you consider the
international base of these things.  I'd like to see
"...jackbooted [US is implied in the text] government
thugs...kicking in a door somewhere and confiscating every
powered device and every living person in the building" in
China, an African country, Russia, or <insert country of
choice here>.  These things span continents and countries
and every time you cutoff the current head, it immediately
spawns another and not always in a country that cares.
