So it's been a while since I rapped at ya...
This blog has always been about free speech. My thesis is that toleration of piracy is required in order to preserve free speech on the internet. However, free speech is under attack from many sources.
Recently it's become know that two people are facing prison time for making chalk protest graffiti. There is no situation in which this is acceptable.
Similarly, kids are facing terrorism charges for video game and facebook smack talk--even when it is quite obvious they are joking.
Point being, people are fucking stupid, and will censor each other quite naturally if given their head. Defending free speech is a full time job, that never ends.
