I don't know, I don't have to look very far to find pissed off americans these days. all over youtube without looking I find videos recorded by americans informing each other of what the media refuses to cover. Slowly, but surely, more and more people are waking up.   I wouldn't write us off just yet.

Yes. Inches; it's a battle of inches. One great thing about You Tube is there's no place for Faux News to hide anymore.

[QUOTE=ginsengsamurai] I find it moronic that many American politicians and many Americans for that matter, bash Communism for being an evil to be destroyed...[/QUOTE]

The so called Communism of which you speak is/was actually totalitarianism, covered with a thin veneer of "Communism".

True communism--where everyone works for the community; where work and resources are equally shared, based on need and ability; where no one is in charge--would be a good thing.

The problem is, someone always wants to be in charge. Someone ALWAYS thinks they deserve more resources, and thinks they should work less, than everyone else. Then the community breaks down and devolves into a totalitarian or dictatorial state.

But I agree with a lot of what you said. Most US politicians, in both parties, have become hypocritical wind-bags, whose only purpose in serving in public office is to get re-elected. The majority of US citizens have become complacent and apathetic, and are more concerned with who will be the next American Idol, than with the slow erosion of their civil liberties and freedom.
Don't see the fnords and they won't eat you!

Germany was trying to censorship a few times. The government seriously thought about prohibiting Facebook parties, locking sites (centralized DNS blocking) and more. Until today, we (the people) were able to prevent this.
However, there is another power, and this one is effectively censoring in germany, right now. It is a collecting society called GEMA. This is what it looks like, if you try to watch videos on youtube, when GEMA thinks, youtube hasn't paid enough money (just took two examples from the us top-40 charts):

GEMA acts on their own, even the labels are fighting against it. It's a shame that money can do, what people prevented from their government.

But back to topic.

SOPA would be a huge step. Besides a censorship on the us citizen side, it is giving the us access to foreign corporates and sites. And worst of all - it will be a signal to all other countries, like the ones in europe, to also establish something like it.
