There was a time when the flashplugin-nonfree package was broken somehow
(I don't remember the exact details--see Wanderer's post for what the
package is and how it is supposed to be used). From that point forward I
took it upon myself to retrieve the most recent libflashplayer.so file
and stick it in the appropriate place(s), extracting the library from
the tar.gz archive offered on the Adobe site. I didn't bother
installing the deb.
Hypertext--or should I say the ideology of hypertext?--is ultrademocratic and
so entirely in harmony with the demagogic appeals to cultural democracy that
accompany (and distract one’s attention from) the ever-tightening grip of
plutocratic capitalism. - Susan Sontag
