It looks like they covered my first paragraph.

The government is just trying to do their job protecting the citizens from anything and themselves, even if our freedom is what we must be protected from.
If they didn't censor the internet who knows what kind of lewd, copyright infringing, terrorist propagating, American-mind influencing material might be unknowingly provided by our ISPs.

although it is true that it will or will might only affect the ISPs only in the US bare in mind that other countries are actually implementing this bill or similar to this bill. I think china is already censoring porn. Malaysia atm is debating about some censoring of anime.
It's just a matter of time that all of the countries will have this wretched bill.

Protect us from our freedom? That's rich.

Is a slave still a slave if one doesn't know that one's a slave?

Freedom is the last thing I want taken from me. I'd rather be dead than be a slave.

Let me get this straight, so you mean we need the government to help us protect ourselves from these materials?
If that's your argument, let me ask you this, do we really need someone to help us to protect us from these materials at the cost of other people's privacy and enjoyment?

I'm not intending to flame you or anything just analyzing your statements and English is not my best language to be honest

This is what i feel too.

No matter what the subject, hoarding or suppressing knowledge is wrong. History will repeat itself and once again proved that censorship is nothing more than a fool's errand.

EDIT: I don't think that the OP broke any of the forum rules.

This is why our forefathers gave us guns ~ To defend our freedoms with our own hands.

I think Allhailodin is implying we take action somehow with the guns...

Although, at this point, I think we are trying to discuss the absurdity of the bill if it passes, and perhaps some possible effects. Let us try to not get off track.

Hey, you people voted these jackasses into office, so you only have yourselves to blame for not informing yourselves on the canidates that are running, and not thinking for yourself but letting the media think for you.

Other than that, I'm totally against this bill. It's just another way of shutting people up who disagrees with the government and refusing to let people have a voice.

This type of crap would prolly happen regardless of who was voted into office. If u want to blame people blame the lobbyist and corrupt corporations before blaming the people who voted. One reason I don't really vote is because I know anyone voted into power is already corrupt or will likely be corrupted later on. The ones who aren't corrupt will likely be unable to do anything that makes an impact. This whole war of "piracy" or file-sharing is sad. They always say it's hurting them but it shows like little to no visible sign of them hurting, also all the claims of "huge" losses are a bunch of crock, the very people claiming to be protecting the artists have actually hurt the artists more than piracy ever did, and all funds from lawsuits like the RIAA have done was to increase their wealth without giving any to the artists who had their work "stolen". One also has to consider the positive effects of file-sharing in that it can help spread the word about many things. Some people who produce music and movies, etc actually embrace piracy because it made something unknown know. The real questions is whether piracy is more harmful than beneficial or not. Honestly all this copyright and patent crap is going way out of hand. I also think the negative impacts of piracy are severely overstated. I understand the need to protect copyrights and patents, but this is getting way out of hand.

It's kind of hard not to vote the jackasses in when it's not even legal to have a write in vote on the ballot in the state I'm living. I think it also takes several thousand votes to get someone else on the ballot, and it has to be done several months in advance before the election process.

Then wouldn't that be going against everything America stands for? It would be hypocritical, they might as well get rid of or at least re-write the First Amendment all together.


Either way, I'm completly againts this bill.

If i recall correctly President Obama was criticizing other countries for their censorship. He was pointing out that some tyrant countries are censoring the media which Obama is furious against it. It's ironic to see that this bill of censorship is budding on our very own land.
But then again, media censorship is quite different with illegal content censorship.
-_-

also to update you guys on Sept 30, this bill is going to the Judiciary.
don't know much about politics and law here in the US but figured i have to throw this one out.

P.S. did i miss something about any forum rules? Is it all good now?

P.S.S
