I’m curious. If the anti-piracy bill passed, people would be forced to legitimately blog and be original. And also, every band ever would rejoice on the fact that, well, instead of people illegally downloading their music, it either spread with them making profit, or by word of mouth which attracts more fans. I like that. I don’t see how that one is so bad. But the censorship, from what I understand, would make the Internet inferior to mass media such as books and magazines. Which from my perspective, also not terrible, but terribly inconvenient. What if you just want to look something up really quick on the go? Nobody would willingly carry a library on their back everywhere! My reason for choosing not to support these acts, is because simply, if you piss off a mob of idiots, like say the entirety of American Public, they will rebel whether it’s actively or passively. I saw a post earlier that said we have real problems and listed global warming. Global warming is on the same level as the natural fuel shortage for me. An illusion created for the soul purpose of extracting money from the public. It’s a scam. Kind of like curing cancer. The government will never admit a cure for cancer as long as they can still make money by “treating the symptoms and extending life expectancy”. Healthcare is an important issue. Keeping our nose out of other countries problems when we have our own issues, is an issue. Education is an issue. Literacy is an issue. Poverty is an issue. Focus on that and maybe I would support our government instead of criticizing what makes this country weak.
I apologize for the rant. I didn’t think I was so bitter this morning.
