I am of the opinion that we are about to see one of the following:
nuclear attack on the USA.
Major volcano eruption (Yellowstone).
Martial Law and evacuation of millions from Gulf States.
Total Economic collapse.
Collapse of the USA as a nation through natural disaster.

It is as if forces in the US are preparing for a total take-over. This bill has nothing to do with democracy. The US citizens should seriously worry about the meaning of these kind of initiatives.
The Internet is a destabilizing force to established interests in the world. It is premised on the free exchange of information which, in turn, is an expression of the liberty of individuals to act in furtherance of their particular interests. Government schools, the mainstream media, and other institutional voices, relentlessly work to condition the minds of people to think and to act within limits that are consistent with institutional purposes. Ideas or actions that do not challenge established interests may be welcomed (if supportive of such ends) or tolerated (perhaps as entertainment). But as the institutional order continues its decentralizing collapse into alternative social systems and practices, its domination of humanity continues to weaken. The struggle confronting mankind comes down to the question of whether human beings are to be the masters of their own lives, or whether they are to remain as resources to be exploited for institutional ends.
