You probably remember the online outrage over the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) copyright enforcement proposal. Last week, the Department of Commerce's Internet Policy Task Force released a report on digital copyright policy that endorsed one piece of the controversial proposal: making the streaming of copyrighted works a felony.

This man has been such a deception.

Great post. (because it's one I agree with - obviously)

..and for the full 'obama deception' film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaQNACwaLw

I'd not seen before until Thom mentioned Obama - such a deception.. and I googled it wondering was it a bit of a zeitgeist phrase out there in the public consciousness - and low and behold.

I like the way, the above movie is referenced as a 'conspiracy' theory yet a lot of the content is blatantly true - very little reading between the lines really needed: e.g the 'scaremongering' at the time of widespread/blanket wireless wiretapping....well that's now a gimme for starters isn't it.

I also love KRS One's little burger franchise summary of the current reality of our 'democracies' - comes in about 0:02:50 .

--

It seems abundantly clear across most of the western world really now (let alone any of the so-called developing nations) that our representative democracy's a real sham, and that if we want REAL democracies - or something approaching them, we either need Direct Democracy (which let's be honest, in our digital, computing, age ..is Entirely f&cking possible from a nuts and bolts or infrastructure point of view ; --OR we need a system that DOES NOT rely on TRUSTING any of our representatives - it needs to work (a la the BitCoin currency network's philosopy of NOT TRUSTING any one party on the network - but VERIFYING all the encrypted transactions) via transparency, open communication and verifiability and accountability - swift accountability.

I'm not a 'commie' or a 'hippy' - I'm just looking for 'fairness' in my world, my society (and it's as much mine as anyone elses, including anyone thinks they're 'in charge')

Those that are De Facto 'in charge' aren't going to concede control. It needs to be taken back from them are shared out again - as ideologically it should have been all along.

Good luck to us all ;-)

Sorry for all the stress quotes and capitals. Not that sorry.

haha, 'The Obama Deception' I linked to above certainly starts interestingly, albeit a little provocatively.. with a lot of well known truths behind the banking collapse, the string pullers of economic and political power; covering really a bunch of the same ground as Inside Job.. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1645089/

but then goes a bit silly.. i.e. proper fictional conspiracy theory stuff -sorry I can be gullible at first- : the Carbon Tax powered new Obama-fiend architectured 'Bank of the World' and personal Presidential conscript Army.. hehe, funny.

But I'll own up, I didn't realise it was a mockumentary at first ..or is it(?!) there's still so much truth within the silliness.
