Re: What is wrong with Europe?

The point my slow witted friend is that the EU has no business trying to enforce local regulation on a global scale. Doing so is ad repugnant as what the US has been doing for years. Also, the most significant impact of the gdpr has been the revenue increases for insurance companies and lawyers. Though we shouldn't forget how great a tool it is for censorship. It is now trivial to remove factual information from the net under the guise of RTBF or potential GDPR violations. I would link to several examples but the techdirt.com links keep getting my comments flagged.
