Internet & Networking It's official now. The signs had been there for a while now. While the west bangs on about the importance of freedom and democracy, they don't actually want anyone to have too much of it. The US, France, and the UK have jointly pretty much declared war on freedom on the web.

Let's save the alarm bells for when they're really warranted.


I'm all for keeping a cool head, but sometimes if you wait too long to right the alarm bell, it's too late. With politics, it's a lot easier to pass a law than repeal one. Politicians are cowards, and if there's an early outcry they'll lose their confidence and disastrous legislation can be prevented.
