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.

So them you can say that West Europe is not west as well!


Oh, come on. You all know what is generally meant by western countries, and you all know that for a really long while now it has almost nothing to do with your relative location on the globe, but more with history, culture, religion, society, economy and generic values. Everyone knows what you mean when you say the west/western world/western countries or near/middle/far east, it's not funny or interesting to play ignorant on this issue.
