PROTECT IP Act??? You don’t live in China! Or do you?
I may live in China and be forced to live behind The Great Firewall of China because I made the choice to come and live in this country I now call home. But that doesn’t mean I have not nor ever will stop trying to punch a hole in the Great Firewall to get out to see what is going on in the world.
Here’s the difference between me and you. I made the choice to be censored by moving to this country.
You live in a country that was built on the rights and freedoms that the rest of the world is envious of. But this act? This simple act of people telling you what you can and cannot see and say… You do not live in China. So don’t sit down and take this Mao sized ass ramming that they are wanting to give you.
I beleive in having information at your finger tips and having a voice and being able to use that voice to say what is on your mind. That is not possible here. The Propaganda Office in Beijing is threatening to take away the anonymous voice of the people right at this moment while the American government is attempting to silence the people as well.
And unfortunately, it all looks like America is trying to become a “Little China” by tightening it’s version of the Iron Fist.
This all being said, I do beleive that the idea of plagiarism is a very naughty thing. And if this was just about stopping plagiarism, I’d be all for it. But it is not just about stopping piracy. It is about sooo much more!!!
If you choose to live in a country where censorship happens… that is one thing.
I live in China. YOU DON’T!!!!!
Speaking on “Life Behind the Wall”
I don’t say this unless I am giving away free stuff on the blog… but Tweet this, Like this, Share this all you can… If you like reading erotica, watching porn, watching cute little panda bears dance to music. If you like watching students from around the world show off their talent by using American made music. If you like MP3/4’s, avi files, YouTube, watching adverts on Youtube. Music Videos. Reading opinionated blogs. If you like watching sex toy review videos with music in the background (properly cited no less!!)… pass this on. For let me tell you. When it comes to a government telling you what you should or shouldn’t think, should or shouldn’t watch… You’re an adult for cripes sake! Use your brain!!!!
