In the News As none other I know how problematic it is to discuss matters related to politics on the web. However, every now and then, there's no way around it, and this is one of those moments. There's this thing going on at airports in the US, and while many will see it as a separate issue, the body scanner issue, and the sad stories it has spawned, are symptoms of a far larger problem that is a direct threat to everything we've fought for during and since the Enlightenment.

Quoting parent article

and the fact that Obama shifted from a pro-copyright reform position to an anti-reform position.


Well, he shifted on most issues too. Like all successful politicians, he lied at nearly every turn. He bathed in a Messianic glory from a deluded populace ready to believe every promise, but backed up by nothing substantial. A politician like Ron Paul who has decades of proven track record of 'change', were ignored by the established media. Our elections in the US are manipulated and don't represent the peoples' will.

It's not too dissimilar a process from the artificial music stars we are now force fed. It can be done. They can get away with it. They do get away with it. Tyranny is here.
