I am a Canadian, so I am not sure how this might affect me. However, seeing as how Canada is the younger sister clutching America's skirt, looking
for guidance and protection as we grow, I see danger for us in this as well.
Having said that, I highly doubt this proposal will make it very far. As commented earlier, the logistics of saving the internet usage of every
American, daily, for 18 months....to me it seems incomprehensibly a monumental undertaking. I have unlimited bandwidth, using between 2GB and 5GB a
month. If that is average, multiply that by, say, 100 million Americans per day X 216 days .... that is one massive harddrive!
I think what is bothering all of us so much about SOPA and this nonsense, is the pervasive feeling that the swing to Fascism is gaining momentum in
North America. Canada is following closely, although (I hope) on a much slower trajectoy. The entire idea of regulating or censoring the internet in
anyway seems ludicrous to me in the nth degree, but it seems if these bills fail, the push will continue to surveil everyone, innocent or not, and
that to me spells death to everything I feel makes us who we are...inquisitive....truth-seeking...free willed persons.
They seek to control everything, from whether we choose to buckle up, to what we can view on public television. Soon, teeth brushing will be mandatory
