The idea about using the dark geniuses for our benefit came to me after watching an episode of the TV series "White Collar". Why can't the government stop prosecuting hackers and con artists and instead ask them for some help to protect their country

It is always difficult to look at an individual in a difficult scenario and comprehend why they are not, based on our own perception, doing everything they can to change their situation. It is our own perception that drives us to make this judgement.

I remember climbing to far out on a high branch as a young child.  I couldn't find the strength to get back up on the brach and was hanging.  I started to scream and felt panicked no one would come.  What can we do help children's voices be heard?

Chicago has been riddled by violence. In some neighborhoods, residents have formed 'block clubs' to combat crime. The groups  allow residents to take ownership of their communities, and they partner with police to keep tabs on rising tensions.

Mass violence actions need weapons. And I think every perpetrators have their own arm dealers. Maybe we can investigate arm dealers to get some information.
