More chilling, the legislation provides that the Attorney General can take action against anyone offering a product or service designed or marketed to get around this new blacklist. Popular services like Tor would be immediately threatened by passage of this bill.
in the age of the internet and alternative news and free flow of information, the "control" of how a story is portrayed is in the hands of ordinary people without the national security problems of larger MSM news outlets.

We are in a world that is so interconnected now. That is the difference in examining Human History. We are able to connect stories in the mass media and basically see history happening better then we ever had before. That's why we can "predict" things with some research.
We first had the airlines. Normal people like you and I could hop on a plane and be anywhere we want in the world. Global travel. Hell, if I wanted to go to China right now I could be there in less then a day. That is how small the world is.
Then the beautiful invention of the internet came about which gave us the ability of instant communication on a GLOBAL level. Everything is global. So for us to become One is inevitable. But not through Government because government and power corrupts.
We live in the INFORMATION AGE. I wouldn't be talking to any of you about this subject without the internet. It gives the ability to spread ideas for Good at a rate that can go VIRAL.
So because of the internet it has made Government so transparent without their consent. We can actually see how they systematically deceive us. Our governments are playing 20th Century politics in the 21st Century. It doesn't work on us anymore. Hillary proves right here that they are afraid of the internet. The elite are scrambling. We the People of the World will win the the end. Third world countries are literally liberating themselves. In the "1st World Countries" we have a global democratic society that allows us to speak out against our "kings" and their wrong doings. Few hundred years ago if I got in the street and said, "Screw the King"......I'd be dead in less then 60 seconds. The internet allows minds to speak and bring up ideas that would never be presented to me otherwise.
We are in a time where the "Occupy Movement" is about denouncing Greed and Corruption that oppresses our lives. The world goes round on the common peoples back. Yet, few get to live life in luxury. We already live in a utopia buts its fueled by possession of money which turns into power which turns into war for more power.
People have the Power to end this suffering. Its been put in motion and the People want to solve it through Peace. After a decade of total war.....2001-2011......would we honestly want to start a larger one? All this talk about WW3 isn't going to happen. The elites hate the elites from other countries. Its always been that way.
The internet has united the world against The elite and their injustices. 2012 is going to be about freedom. Not the end of the world.

this story reminds me so much of South Africa in the old days before TV was allowed. The old, white government viewed television as a serious threat, because, if commoners had TV, then they would be able to see and know how things were in other countries ....
you can't read all about it here, and it makes me wonder...... I just hope America doesn't go down that same, sad, dark route ....
when you watch this video make sure you catch the part where hilary clinton says "we are losing the media WAR". if you ever thought that the govenment didnt take the free flow of information and ideas accross the internet seriously then you really are just a dreamer (no offence intended).
