CISPA: Worse Than SOPA

Basically you all remember the whole PIPA/SOPA fiasco from a few months ago. Well we knew they'd be back once the initial furor died down. Behold CISPA, the 100x worse bill.

In effect what CISPA is trying to do is take the new Arizona Internet Censorship law and taking it to unheard of heights. The way the law is written gives the government the right to censor basically, anything and everything on the internet that it deems is "disruptive or offensive" to government or business.

-You want to use Facebook or Twitter to organize an otherwise legal protest? Well it's inherently disruptive therefore can be censored.

-You and a partner want to create a business that competes with another business, maybe one that has strong government ties? Well, that's disruptive, so therefore censored.

-The government will have the authority to access read and preemptively censor "WITHOUT ANY DUE PROCESS OR OVERSIGHT" basically anything you write if it wants to. Emails social media hell even this site.

-It does not matter if the intent of the law is this or even if the law stands up to the unquestionable challenges it will face. The fact of the matter is Congress is even considering this bill let alone having written it.

You know, you'd think the senators would realize that the more they try to push these kind of bills, the LESS votes they will receive in the next election.

We live in the generation of the internet. The average citizen actually HAS a voice now and is willing to use it.

BTW, how long until the RIAA/MPAA goes bankrupt? That would solve all these issues.

Guys, if it won't happen, it won't happen. Let's all just sign a petition and wait until it doesn't pass so that we can get on with our lives.

I'm actually frightened that there'll be a "Censor My Little Pony" bill.

ohh internet

It is truly the new frontier of a new century.

And just like all frontiers, they all have their end and assimilation into a structured government.

Of course it is. Writing to congressmen and senators will change nothing. The law will pass if it serves the interests of the politicians and those at the top of the pyramid.

But again, if this passes, people will just go into the deep web, which is impossible to censor.

I said it last time with SOPA and PIPA (and I was right) and I will say it again. This will not pass, and the chances of it passing are somewhat small.

And again, just like with SOPA/PIPA, if this passes, I WILL riot. The blood will flow like water... Sinew will coat the walls... Bones will the only grave markers... Heads of state WILL be impaled on pikes in front of the capitol. VIVA LA REVOLUCION!
