So I get an email in my Inbox from the EFF titled:
Secret negotiations to regulate the Internet
And so I read it and it's talking about intellectual property in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
The thing about it, is they are exactly right. This is par for the course for America in the 21st. century. When you get an email about secret negotiations to regulate the internet--it is literally about secret negotiations to regulate the internet.
The people are not up in arms because they barely understand the issues. At party's I've made myself mildly unpopular by declaiming on the evils of the copyright lobby, when they are most worried about feeding their families.
Fair point. Except it's going to be much harder to feed your family in a police state, which is what an internet censorship regime is, by definition.
