January 18, 2012: Stop PIPA/SOPA Day

January 18, 2012: Stop PIPA/SOPA Day

It is probably unrealistic in the EXTREME to imagine that a functioning oligarchy in full cry might permit the continued, unmodified, uninterfered operation of so fundamentally liberating a technology as the Intertubez has become, and still remains. We need only regard how television was co-opted, and its liberatory poitential was turned aside, to become--along with the rest of its flickering-screened scions--the most POTENT agent of propaganda promulgation ever invented.

I regard the present structure of the Intertubez as I regard the Constitution: It works pretty well as it stands, and fucking around with it pretty much invites the bullies in, so leave it the fuck alone.

Dennis Trainor, Jr, on "WTF Does OWS WANT?"

One version. There are more/others.

That there is NO support for ANY of the mitigations proposed by 'alternative'--though indubitably well-informed, highly versed, economic and political technicians, whose credibility on the bases of credentials and credibility are surely FAR superior to Mr. Andrea Mitchell's--policy wonks at "Occupy" is a telling clue that there is little sympathy for improving the lot of the common folk in either of the "major Parties," should you have atually by this time needed MORE of said clues...
