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 have made calls to my US Senators to demand a safe internet. We have somewhat safe movies or at least a rating system and we have rules in place for public sex and nudity. We have rules for what one can say in public. What makes anyone think there is a no mans land that is free from civilized rules.

We are all for a safe internet which means protected against identity theft, spamming and spoofing. We are all for rules on where you show movies. You don't show a violent movie to kids in a school. And we are all for banning hate speech or speech that induces panic.
BUT
Changing movies and music so that people don't get offended is WRONG. Don't watch it and don't listen to it if you don't like it but don't keep it from other people. If a movie isn't meant for kids then don't show it to kids.
And your strawman of public sex and nudity? The 60s are over man.
