"Those who give up essential liberties for temporary security do not deserve both and shall have neither." — Ben Franklin
I don't know how many times this quote has proven right, and how many times again and again people do give up liberties for little to no security. Humanity wasn't made to be controlled nor to be told what to do. Humanity is to grow with endless possibilities, un-challenged, able and willing to take risks to get to something one or more really love.
This SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) has gotten too far. Doesn't anyone inform themselves of the world anymore? Doesn't anyone look back and ask questions no matter the consequences? Now SOPA wants to censor information on the internet just as they did to the main news organizations, or just as Hitler did in WWII to keep people in the black of what he was doing behind their back, or as Stalin did to keep his people blind, as Kim-Jong Ill did, as the Communists of China have been doing... and, haven't we already discussed this and said it was a bad thing? Millions of years of history and still, people make the same mistakes. Now it has come to America in a huge package and named SOPA. Why are we even having this problem? I voted to keep this shit out of our hair.
Government is supposed to be there to protect its people against little (LITTLE) threats, not turn into a 1984 type setting. Here it is, a blackout is to occur, if you do not know about SOPA click the links below, if you do, then write to your congressman and help get others educated of the true and vicious world around them.
Because having a computer with internet is great, but letting someone start to tell you what you can and can't do isn't human. So why let this control what a human does?
