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.

@Thom:
"The Netherlands is often seen as somewhat of a guiding light when it comes to matters that touch the very core of freedom and human rights (same-sex marriage, euthanasia, and so on), and I am hoping that like with those matters, other countries will soon follow in our footsteps. "

First:
You include same-sex marriage a core of human freedom? That is highly subjective and often based on the background of who shouted it. You can't claim same sex marriage as "core" as it will ultimately destroy a society where people only chooses their marriage partner of the same sex thus defeating the very core of human freedom = procreation. And don't tell me that their might be technology in the future to overcome same-marriage limitations. I can claim the same basic right not to pollute my family from same sex marriage, for that is my basic _right_ as a human.

Second:
You did not mention that lately U.N. declares that internet access is a basic human right, how does it affect the war promulgated by the countries you mentioned against the web?
