Legal "Among the treasure troves of recently released WikiLeaks cables, we find one whose significance has bypassed Swedish media. In short: every law proposal, every ordinance, and every governmental report hostile to the net, youth, and civil liberties here in Sweden in recent years have been commissioned by the US government and industry interests." How such prestigious nations with such long and proud histories, like Sweden, The Netherlands, and so on, can succumb to pressure from a former colony is beyond me. We should know better.

And America is doing what it does best: going around beating up everybody else while trying to "fix" them.


Quite so. TPB is an old example, the MegaUpload crackdown is just the latest example that America has decided that what it deems to be lawful on its own territory is also applicable to be lawful for the entire world.

America is acting like a mentally challenged high school bully, terrorizing the other kids in the classroom. When you promote stupidity, what you breed is arrogance. Its about time the world goes to college so we can regulate bullies like this outside of the school system, regulating them to flip burgers in a low-wage environment, where they belong.
