    ACTA: How to destroy humanity and freedom of speech.

    Hey guys,
    I've been hearing all kinds of shit about SOPA lately, of course i am very interested how this will turn out, so i decided to nose around on the web looking for some info on the subject. However, during my search i stumbeled across something much more fucked up, named ACTA (or Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement). What this law does is basicly the same as SOPA, with the exception that it's worldwide and has a couple of extra bullshit laws like halting the production of medicine for life-threathening diseases or certain kinds of crops. These are just a couple of examples of what we will get if this thing passes.

    If you want to know more about this, watch either the enclosed video or the article on Wikipedia.

    Here's the video:



    And here's the article on Wikipedia:

    Just found out about it and that video explained a lot to me. Thanks for sharing.


    ACTA is ridiculous, I can't even count how many of the rights in the Canadian Privacy Act this is breaking. And its world-wide, this is just ridiculous.

    The fact people care more about SOPA and PIPA and ACTA than they did about the NDAA is why America is fucking doomed. This is what we deserve.

    I think most people who follow the news and knew about the NDAA were sufficiently worried. The problem is that people didn't know about it.

    Except third world (basically) means that most people live in mud shacks, dont have running water, and have never even seen an actual computer.

    Pretty much this.

    Hey guys, we're thinking of censoring the internet with SOPA, PIPA and ACTA.

    "WTF NO. THE INTERNET IS OUR HOME. STAY AWAY FROM OUR LAST SAFE HAVEN."

    Okay, well we're also sanctioning the NDAA and are going to violate many more human rights like detainment without trial if we suspect someone is partaking in terrorist activities. It's not like we'll have any definite proof or anything we just have to think people are terrorists and we'll detain them. Not to mention the plethora of other things we're doing with this.

    "FUCK OFF WITH YOUR INTERNET CENSORSHIP. IT'S OUR INTERNET."

    Right, so we'll run with NDAA then.
    i wake up every morning and brush my teeth with rainbows after i piss excellence and wash my face with glory

    I'm starting to wonder if the Internet was designed as a more efficient way to control and pacify the masses.
