Internet & Networking The SOPA and PIPA laws were defeated in the U.S. just months ago, and already the forces for internet control are back. Up for vote this week, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) would override all privacy laws so that private companies (like ISPs) can share all information with the U.S. government. No warrants or other authorization required. Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) points out the problems with this law. Like SOPA and PIPA, the privacy issues and monitoring could reach far beyond U.S. borders.

It really does require coming at it from above and below. The lawmakers need to be scientifically literate, and so do the voters.

In the country with the 2nd highest per-capita number of young Earth creationists in the industrialized world (exceeded only by Turkey)? I wouldn't hold my breath.
