Germany discovered that, alongside Nazi nostalgisers, they have folks called Reichsbürger who were planning a coup and had infiltrated deep enough into state structures so that the matter demanded some attention. According to wider reporting, the raid involved collaboration from Austrian and Italian authorities too.

From another video of his it appears that he is brother of Tech Lead (as a millionaire) who is probably familiar to you.
Somewhat. Insofar as I am I definitely don't want to watch him.

I have thought about the controversy that Emacs does not adhere to "Unix philosophy" that programs should be small, do just one thing and do it well.
Since you mentioned Xah. ;)

From another video of his it appears that he is brother of Tech Lead (as a millionaire) who is probably familiar to you. Dick Mao[1] is a far more creative insulter and intensely angry at life, but it's nice that he is less scummy and less scammy than Tech Lead. And rewriting Emacs is a life choice I definitely understand.

A while ago I read some book that talked about how there used to be a type of computers called Lisp machines that by now have ceased to exist. Such a terrible loss, but apparently RMS noticed early enough where the wind was blowing and made his GNU project a Unix-like, which turned out to be the correct choice. Still, it would be nice to have a machine that only runs Lisp and whose only job is to launch Emacs.

I have thought about the controversy that Emacs does not adhere to "Unix philosophy" that programs should be small, do just one thing and do it well. Instead of a philosophy, it seems to be a limitation of C language. C is binary-compiled. When you launch a the binary, it loads everything into memory, but since memory was precious in old times, C programmes could not afford to be big. So the so-called philosophy is due to the nature of C language. Whatever Unix-like there is in the GNU project, it is done as per Unix conventions and limitations of C. Emacs does not have to obey the limitations of C.
Now that's an amusing username, or maybe real name.
