Internet censorship in full swing in the USA (again)
First we had "Evil Joe" Lieberman with his "Internet kill switch" and now they are at it again, this time with a "Protect IP Act". The thugs in Congress are always up to no good, usually some crafty way of making the rich richer, the poor poorer, to further reduce any civil liberty left and, last but not least, to do whatever the hell the Israel lobby demands from them. Censoring the Internet is a particularly "good" idea, from their point of view, as it would contribute to making US millionaires and billionaires richer, and it would also provide a terrific way of cracking down on anti-Israel, anti-Zionist or pro-Palestinian (i.e. "terrorist) websites.
What AIPAC's minions in Congress do simply not understand is that the technology needed to defeat all their plans is already out there. For example, take a look at the following information about the FreedomBox:
or watch these two videos of Eben Moglen speaking on the topic "Freedom in the Cloud"
"Evil Joe" and his cohorts will fight freedom everywhere, on the Internet and in the real world, but at least on the Internet they are clearly out-gunned by the new technologies (software and hardware) which already exist and which shall be deployed in the near future.
This, at least, is a battle we already know we will win.
