Another Oldie from my notes

OK, so I am in a wierd mood today. From Richard Stallman, author of GNU Emacs, may God be with him, we have the following quote (where I believe he is talking about C-1 or B level security but I am not sure):
This does not mean I agree with the general belief that such security is actually a useful thing to have on your computer: as a practical matter , your system manager is more of a threat than outsiders, and security won't protect you from the system manager. It will, however, directly interfere with your work, and tempt the system manager to make himself indispensible by finding excuses not to let users do various things for themselves.
