1. CISPA: Congressional plan to censor Internet concerns critics. Apr 6, 2012, 22:58 LittleMe
 
The feds have already been intercepting a lot of Internet traffic. This has been known for years. However this would greatly expand the scope and legitimize what has already been happening.

The scariest part about that bill, I think, is the immunity for participating corporations. It means they can do whatever they want with the data under the guise of national security. So much about this is so very wrong and fascist. There are already existing laws to deal with this stuff and we don't want to live in North Korea thank you.

Say something in an online FPS like "I can't wait to shoot everyone." or something even less clear and the feds might come and put you or your child in a secret prison with no trial and subject to perpetual torture and humiliation so they can get you to say whatever they want you to say. This can happen to a lot of innocent people when such broad powers are bestowed based solely on trust when that trust is not due or transparent and accountable.

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.
