    I can't help but find irony in the overwhelming feeling of helplessness I have in our democracy. As long as they still allow caturday, the majority will go along with it...

    he has a valid point.

    4chan will be gone, and the source of internet memes will be the government.

    In 2002 you could log onto google video and get full length english movie results from video.cina and other Chinese/Russian sites. Now google doesnt even show those search results. If I go to the sites manually, the content is blocked and I cant access it.

    If this passes it will blow the doors wide open for websites that are viewed as harmful to society. It is a horrible, horrible idea for any group of people to decide whats good for everyone else.

    I should have specified. It is a horrible idea to put this kind of power in the hands of people we have no control over. Yes, politicians do whatever the hell they want anyway but at least its the people that elects their dumb asses. This it seems would be all appointed based with no conformation of any kind or say so from the people.

    any time society (us) goes against big corporations (movie and music production) we are going to lose. voters can't do shit when companies are buying politicians.

    it wont happen soon, but eventually. purely for the fact that companys will by congressional positions and have laws passed for them. think big oil and electricity.

    movie/music studio: "black market movies and music cost us $3billion in lost revenue. if we pay $1billion for a new president that will pass our law, it's a good investment"
