Eventually we will enter the internet with our minds, like the Matrix, and there will be no real difference between reality and virtual reality. People will probably stay online in the virtual world because it can be created into something much more enjoyable than the real thing.


Bah, "more enjoyable". Only until some dicks decide it's a good idea to implement "laws" and "politics".
Also, imagine the trolls! D; The horror!


There are trolls in "reality", too. Law and order will eventually happen because people crave those things, because they want protection from the harmful things that freedom can give us. Law and order are natural reactions to chaos and freedom, which leads to balance and stability. Laws exist for our protection from "trolls/habitual abusers of others". People always say they want freedom, but they really don't. What they really want is just a certain amount of freedom within rules.

I don't really know what I'm talking about. I'm letting my thoughts flow.

Internet is too much of a threat to those who reside within the boundaries of the I-695 Loop around Washington DC. The big 3 alphabet networks here (NBC, CBS, ABC) are dinosaurs dispensing news compared to the lightening fast potential of the net. The big 3 are also purported to be infiltrated by enough well-meaning articulate intellectual elitists who will sway whichever direction Washington policymakers want to go. The path of resistance against stupid ideas posing as future laws to limit or eliminate even more liberties from the masses is extinct here. The axiom "Follow the Money" is the determinant for successful existence of the big 3. Political advertising will earn these 3 networks excellent profits 2011 to 2012 but that's about it. Advertising income is dwindling, influence peddling is diminishing.

Everyone realizes the power to mold, change minds, formulate great ideas, disseminate valid information is now with the net, not the dinosaur networks or their quasi-governmental brethren. (Yeah!) Therefore, certain governmental bodies want to control certain workings of the net. In the guise of protecting the masses from cyber-bogeymen the managerial types within the workings of government want to wrest from the citizenry many cyberspace freedoms that are becoming diminished in real world settings: the freedom of expression and inalienable validation of the civil liberties bestowed to each individual who ventures forward to voice or print something on the web.

This is part of the issues the web organizations are concerned about.....more damn government meddling with overbearing regulations that do little but stagnate and suffocate the free exchange of ideas, freedoms of speech and thought.

Apparently, Lamar S. Smith who introduced the disgusting bill known as SOPA is a hypocrite. This year, "in January 2012, it was determined that Smith's own website had used copyright infringing materials" according to a news report.

Oh the irony.
