All this denies the simply truth on my system: 

I am root. All my system belongs to me and listens to me. 

I am user. Everything I start belongs to me, except where I explicitely pass 
some date to someone else. 

If I need to access a system process, I pass it data and it returns data. The 
system processes need far less memory than my user processes, so they can hog 
it without ill effects on general purpose computers. 

The system processes belong to root. 

I am root. 

(A longer answer is currently in my drafts directory at home, so I keep this 
one short)
