Legal "The Chinese government issued new rules on Friday requiring Internet users to provide their real names to service providers, while assigning Internet companies greater responsibility for deleting forbidden postings and reporting them to the authorities." The crazy thing is not that China is tightening its control over the internet. No, the crazy thing is that if it were up to our own politicians, western governments should do the same.

One of the biggest pulls I've seen towards third parties (particularly the Libertarian Party) by people my age and younger is the desire for control of the internet by both major parties. If the Democrats want to keep their hold on the youth vote, they'd best wise up and fast.

I find it ironic that some of the biggest protesters of "commie" values are the same ones pushing for greater censorship on the web.

But then I guess hypocrisy is hardly new thing for them.
