The non-loyalist, non-royalist patriots, who sued for freedom in the lead up to and conduct of the American Revolution, wanted freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. As a secondary matter, they made the poor choice of wishful thinking about the objectivity of the courts in issuing warrants of reasonable search and seizure. Why on Earth did they believe that courts would be any different here than in England — they were based on the same general model?
I am highly skeptical of humans who make predictions. The word “prediction” literally means to say something before it is true. If something is not yet true, it can be only in one other class — not true.
People in the technology trades these days are insisting that we are experiencing “convergence.” At TechTarget.com, the following definition is offered: DEFINITION technological convergence … –ComputerWeekly.com In general, convergence is a coming together of two or more distinct entities or phenomena.

Furthermore, the addition of the dependent preambulatory clause, and the last comma render the passage ungrammatical.
There is no single task in making a pencil that requires rocket science, but there are lots of tasks that require the opportunity to do something in an optimum return situation. A lone pencil maker would have to switch jobs and be proficient in each. But in the real world it is not practical for the person who harvests the wood to also fashion the lead and to formulate the paint and affix the eraser.
