If you feel sick, it's just the chemo working

Parent article: Apple's patent attack
Earlier I've made an analogy that patent trolls might be a useful treatment to this sick society of ours where one can claim to support healthy competition with a straight face all the while claiming monopoly privileges to fundamental technologies.
Apparently Apple wants in on escalating the MAD patent wars. I say good going, Apple. They may be a bunch of greedy control freaks, but it's become rather evident that the society needs to be shown what laws that enable such parties to control the use of technology really do.
Sometimes you need to hit rock bottom before you can get up again. It won't be fun in the short run for anyone trying to do business in the countries most affected, but if that's what it takes, that's what it takes.
