War on Privacy: Currently Being Won by US Government and other Entities - Page 2
This whole mess scares me. What is America coming to? What will we face next? The control that the government is gaining over our right to free speech and also on the use of the internet is getting scary. It is one thing to protect the copyright materials, but it is not right that the government can shut a site down and at the same time control any information on social networks going out about the site. I am sorry, but there are no checks or balances being put in place to protect us, the little guys with no bad intent.
In this time of economic downturn many are focused on the issues of the condition of the job market, wall street, and various other events that are streaming across blogs and news channels. Americans need to stop and look at what is going on around them. the government is slowly taking freedoms and liberties away from us and most of the time we don't find out about it to the last minute. Many times the laws are in place and we don't even know the exact scope of the laws, or even that they were enacted, until they are already in the books.
I ask that you take the time to visit AmericanCensorship.org and take a look specifically at the NIPA and SOPA bills that are going to be voted on soon. You be the judge after reading the information in front of you and decide if the rights of our free speech are being infringed if these bills go into affect. I think you will find yourself outraged and a little scared as to what control the government may have over the internet soon.
