Original OSNews Interviews Wil Wheaton is not like most of the rest of the actors. He admits that he is a true geek, running Linux, enjoying programming, playing lots of computer games. Many of you will remember Wil portraying "Wesley Crusher" in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" TV series some years ago. Wil will reprise his role as Wesley in the "Star Trek X: Nemesis" movie, the tenth installment of the Star Trek movies, which is set to be released two days after the second "Lord of the Rings" movie, at the end of this year. In the interview following, Wil talks about his favorite computer games, the computers used on TNG, the future of computing in AI, his favorite Linux distros, PHP and more.

Applauding efforts to promote Communism

Do not take this harshly Eugenia, but in the USA there is a much longer, well established and *continued* tradition (1789) for "checking" what the Government and politicians do than in Greece (1974?). The 'checking' is done in many ways, specially every four years, since looooong ago before you were born (1974-5?). Football is another tale.

You really doubt protest.net raging communism? The protest.net site is absolutely full of communist references, they do not try to hide it, they take proud of it, I know that many of them are affiliated. This is about their perpetual motto: "Converge Against Capitalism: Organize to Build Dual Power, and the Culture of Resistance". Who the hell you think Dorothy Day was?, guess which is the favorite affiliation of the Anti-Capitalist Convergence movement. You doubt that the terrorist FARC-EP (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - People´s Army) which protest.net explicitly supports aren't communist??? It doesn't get more RED than that.

The Topic/Issue of their violent protests usually is "Fascism & Imperialism", and guess who is in that fascist list, the USA. They go as far as to accuse the USA Administration of conspiracy in the WTC massacre, ..."Cheney isn't trying to hide the Enron meeting records for the reasons we think, he's trying to hide his meetings with the Taliban and Enron over the pipeline deal..."

The "US prison-industrial complex"... Constantly spitting on the USA Army and Police, "...the one-year anniversary of the police shooting of Timothy Thomas. We are under assault by a police department run amok. Your voice and resistance..."

Peter that is not questioning the 'US govt.', that is seeking to destroy it. "Until the US Constitution is thrown out the people at protest.net" will not rest, and YOU, Peter, and all those who cowardly concede will ALWAYS be the enemy.

>>The US would just be another entity of the Commonwealth of Nations if it weren't for our tenacious attitude towards freedom, and now you want us to just forget all that and let people like GWB tell us what to do?

What a pile of nonsense, "to forget all that?", to forget what is the USA greatest Alliance?, are you nuts? And don't have the elected "people" 'something' to say in a Democracy?
Just what do you think freedom is, promoting violent disorders and destroying property as the protest.net mobilizations fancy?, applauding terrorism as they do with the Colombian FARC? Looking for the ultimate causes of a massacre everywhere but on the perpetrators???

And you resume all this totalitarism as "Wil's effort to question the US govt", which of course "you applaud". Wil Wheaton and some of you too, should spend a paid vacation in the not so hype South Colombian forest to learn what's freedom and what's not. Wil links to communism, question that.
