People are always talking about history, the effect it has on the world, and the ramifications of letting bad things happen because we’re too busy or too lazy or too ignorant. This could very well be a defining moment in our generation. These are very dangerous bills that would give the Government unilateral power to control the internet and reduce our freedoms to that of China. No Democracy should have that power over it’s people. And remember, this isn’t a political issue in the traditional sense. this is supported by Liberals and Conservatives alike. you CANNOT depend on your “party” to represent you this time.
Lastly. if you are on Twitter, use #SOPASTRIKE all day today, let’s make it a #1 trending topic and force people to pay attention
