It seems people just do not believe such things will happen. I got laughed at more than a few times trying to tell people about the light bulb ban. Those same people are now like "When did this happen?" or "I never heard anything about this". It seems that most people just do not want to even thing such a thing could happen so they just do not listen.

Yeah, they're determined--and I mean determined--to bring the Internet securely under their Fascist umbrella and make it safe--and appropriate--for 5-year-olds. The rest of us might as well decide right now what we're going to use in its place. And we might as well get used to the idea that whatever we use will be thoroughly mined by the NSA. Even if we could effectively fight these regressive laws, that's the thing we have to keep in mind: That it's going to be collected, sifted, collated, and catalogued by the NSA no matter what kind of electronic communication it is.
The laws no longer matter. It's too late. You're being profiled as we speak.
For my part, I've decided to be philosophical about it. Consequently, I only break OFFline laws now

Yes, I know., it's a shame. I usually check this out especiallyif I see a recent post going on this forum. Apathy has made it to ATS. What happened here?
