Stop The Corporate State’s Political Stooges From Internet Censorship

“War is merely the continuation of politics by other means” – Carl von Clausewitz

Well, let’s test that two hundred year old quote.  The Cold War, the war on illiteracy, the war on poverty, the war on drugs, the war on unemployment, the war against welfare abuse and on and on and on.  Now the war on terror, the latest continuation of politics by other means, is morphing into a fear-based society without laws (Why I am suing Barack Obama) and a war to shut you up.  The war to shut you up would be the war on Internet censorship. 

The list of endless abuses of privacy, individual liberties, democracy and the rule of law goes hand in hand with the economic slavery of the corporate state.  Greater and greater control is necessary to create an Orwellian reality that mocks the truth.  That truth is none of the policy wars we have been involved in over the last fifty years are legitimate.   If a world exists where we aren’t able to say or do anything without offending someone, especially our corporate masters, the transformation to a complete fear-based society will be complete.

The Internet Archive.org, Google, Wikipedia and other sites are joining in a period of darkness today in a show of solidarity and dissent.  Just about all of the founders, scientists and engineers who created the internet have already expressed their dissent.  This period of darkness will eventually be permanent courtesy of the political stooges of the corporate state if they have their way.   These bills are atrocious legislation written by corporations not meant to protect citizens from internet predation or crimes but instead to control freedom of expression and dissent against illegitimacy.

The status quo’s rapaciousness seems to know no bounds.  

Join Vint Cerf and other founders of the Internet who without equivocation are against the destruction of our internet freedoms an sign the petition to your congressional overlords to stop the attempted corporate coup of the Internet.
