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.

No, I don't believe in calling the fire department when one kid lights off a firecracker.

I like that analogy, but still... I think you are focusing on one dot and not seeing a bigger picture. Government doesn't just come up with one isolated event after another. This is not one sole moment that is going to do everything that is said it will do. Even if everything happening is just one random, isolated coincidence right after another, each and every little thing adds up to one big thing. In a free world, the government doesn't have control. The law serves the people. So what role does any government in the free world have in "policing" and "civilising" the internet? I don't even know what that means! There are already laws that people can be arrested for that, even on the internet. This amounts to nothing more than control. Who's controling everything, though? There's no government scheming amongst itself to control "the people". There is a much smaller group who has control over even the governments. Conspiracy theorize much?
