Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Over 500 million people use the Internet, and over a billion computers are deployed around the world. It has become impossible to ignore the issue of content management and access. Call it Digital Rights Management if you will, or call it working out how to manage copying in the digital realm. We need to solve the problem of how digital information will be shared, and an equally important need to set open and wide reaching standards. It has been more than ten years since computers and the Internet really started to take off, and there is still no coherent approach to restricted (or unrestricted) information sharing. This is a serious problem."

We'd have to eradicate ourselves. We're the most dangerous thing of all.

No, it's all about teaching kids the right way, and many aren't up to it. I'm not up to the challenge, myself, so I don't have kids. But if someone is going to have them, they really need to be raising them right and teach them the right way without trying to hide real life from them ie. "This is sex, and these are the dangers that come along with it.." It's easy to preach when I don't have kids of my own, but we really need to be doing a better job of it.

Thing I don't get is that you have conservatives in Europe too, but either yours are not as hardline repressive as ours, or you just keep them hidden away better?
