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.

I'd say most of you need to learn how to be an adult not a child or parent. Be a good citizen. Take all your stolen movies and music and delete them.

uh.. what? being an adult is somehow more responsible than having fully dependent offspring to care for? Wow.. your dealer gets you the good stuff huh..

Take your dirty movies that may have been forced on to young girls and delete them.

And what of the films made by consenting adults? Are those one's ok to keep provided they are kept from being viewed by those under age of consent? Or are we just going to take a puritan approach and all plug our ears and sing "lalalalala" really loud while claiming that the species only procreates through immaculate conception.


Look, no one is promoting child abuse or harm to others. They are saying that there are existing laws and extensive powers granted to the police who enforce those laws. Two nations cooperating to take down a criminal organization that crosses borders does far more good than either nation arbitrarily censoring local traffic. And, I mean real criminals not citizens legally using copyright's fair-use clause.

And, if you don't think that a little censorship now for the trendy "war-on" of the day won't evolve into censorship of anything that threatens the government status quo to the determent of the citizens it claims to represent; consider moving to China, the local laws are probably more in-line with your delusions.
