"He has no idea the repercussions of his demands. The end result is a tyrannical police state"

we don`t know if Bono actually made that statement. But no matter who did, you are right. Chinas efforts to curb internet access eh? Well if that was adopted over here, we would have a Dictatorship tyrannical police state.

Actually when you add political correctness into the situation we are already heading in that direction.

Would whoever possibly made that statement care? I dought it. Say it was Bono for example. He is a stinking rich poli-musician now. And the rich could care less if the buyer base hands get slapped. Cause they are the creative talent and it is their right blah blah blah blah. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

With the amount of lawyers out there protecting artists these days, I doubt any artist is hurting at the Bank. What they are wanting is every last EXTRA sheckle they can squeeze now. And they wouldn`t blink an over who they gotta walk over, bad peeps and good, to get their desires met.
