I am also skeptical of a internet security bill, but not because we dont need one, imagine what could happen if a attack happened on all the major banks. My concern is Washington and the way they take orders from the recording industry on a constant basis. This means that security will become censorship and well fuck that....
lets remove money from politics first, then the only people they are accountable to is the majority of voters.
Stupid take down notices aside, i am glad i watched it last night, i got to watch the greatest achievement the human race has ever done...the complexity of it made landing on the moon seem like a walk in the park
What made me sad is the main stream media barley mentions it, Romney and Obama can fight any day, but something like this rarely happens.
Dont make a podcast based on just one side, even if the other side is really nothing but misleading facts and propaganda, that makes it all the more reason to bring them on and call them on the BS; Challange yourselves
a president that a slave to the media company or a president that is a slave to the financial institutions....What a horrible decision, still, you cant get much worse then banks anymore, even the RIAA didnt destroy the world economy.
Dan is protesting but it doesnt matter in the USA. Corporations are the new dictators, sure the government cant silence anyone...but our government is not the one in charge, elections are simply for the people who we send to talk to the people in charge.
The cycle is rather simple if you got alot of money
1. Hire a army full of lobbyist, arm them with suits, pens and a check book. Send them to DC
2. Lobbyist infiltrate congress and white house, ambushing all representatives using the smell of money as bait
3. Offer as much money as it takes to write laws in your favor
4. Hire a army full of lawyers, give them the info of the laws you just wrote.
5. Apply for broad patents that fit the law you just wrote
6. send letters to anyone who may just be using your very broad patent and except a check, its cheaper then hiring a army full of lawyers to fight your army of lawyers; Sometimes it does go to court, no problem
6a. Convince the judge you are right, if the judge doesnt think so try and bribe, if you cant bribe well you can try another court, after all, you wrote the law.
7. Use the law you wrote to silence anyone who doesn't agree with you, or your use of the system.
8. profit!!!!!(and lots of it)
Got to love USA
Wont be long before corporations can just order people assassinated, im sure they are figuring a way to sell it to the American people and with enough money, it can happen..its not like Americans have a education system to comprehend anything other then one liners.
If the ISP enforce this stupidity, ill get a VPN and believe me, casually seeding will not be the norm. Ill seed everything i can get my hands on. If i got to spend 15.00 more a month to get the ISP off my back, better believe ill make use of it.
The right to bear arms stemmed out of needing a militia...see back in the day, they didn't have a formal army so it was the populace that needed to be armed. They could protect themselves from Indians, red coats, and any would be criminal.
It was not to 'scare the politicians'
also, there is no amount of guns that you could possibly have to take on the USA military. I dont see how you could scare a politician with the USA military behind them.
Well, because of the internet...NWO is impossible. Even if they are trying, they are failing and miserably...The pandoras box called the internet was open, nothing short of the collapse of civilization due to a catastrophic even (massive nukes, asteroid) will stop what is going to happen.
what is going to happen?
I believe its going to be a interconnected world where country boundaries will no longer matter, while governments will still have there boundaries, information will not and its information that creates our community's, not governments
The RIAA and MPAA can fight against this all they want, in fact, i suspect it will get worse; the protest against pipa and sopa where examples of the power of the world community compared to country community.
