Throwing the baby out with the bath water.
To think my grandfather went to war and placed his life on the line to fight against this kind of stupidity. With the living memory of those who fought on the beaches of Normandy, the hills of Italy and the jungles of the Pacific theatre fading, this kind of evil once again begins to fill the minds of men.
Our freedoms were hard-won, paid for in blood by men & women who left their children fatherless or motherless in an effort to stop the growth these kinds of ideals. Sacrificing freedom for the false safety of a police-state is a lesson to be learned from history. A mistake to be avoided.
My appologies to Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
First they came for the hackers,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a hacker
Then they came for the entertainment media pirates,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a pirates.
Then they came for the perverts,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a pervert.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Anonymous, because this kind of government shenanigans scares the bejeepers out of me.
