There is this outrageous move afoot to limit/censor the kaleidoscopic wonder of the Internet. Oh, sure, it is couched in noble terms, all about anti-piracy, and protecting intellectual property, but censorship is censorship no matter if you dress it in doublet and X-gartered hose or an Armani tux. Controlling information leads to controlling thought (as FOX “News” has proved so frighteningly well) and that leads to tyranny.
Conversely, the best weapon against tyranny is education – knowing the truth and speaking that truth loud and long despite the forces trying to shut you down.
SOPA and PIPA are, to this blogger’s thinking, not only wrong but dangerous.
Let your senators and representatives know where you stand.
