The problem of the anti-anonymity bill is that it seeks to limit free speech.
Rational people will say that one should not be afraid when voicing out, and thus should have their real names listed.
Problem is, we do not live in a rational world or Disneyland.
Throughout the course of human civilisation, free man had sought to speak up freely, but were only cut down when it ran against the will of the
rulers. It happens even today.
Look at Russia - dissidents and protestors sent to jail for 14 years. Look at Iran - hangings for speaking out. Look at China - dissidents made to
disappear into the night. Look at Europe - imprison with trump up charges for speaking out ( Julian Assange). Look at Latin America ruled by cartels -
you get shot.
Even USA is not spared. Emily Brockovich harassed for speaking up against corporations, and many more names intimidated for speaking out by various
public and private agencies. I am sure one of the illinios democrat ex senator, who is currently charged for embezzling funds, would have prefered his
crimes remained in the dark than be whistle blown to state authorities to look into the matter.
Why should a human be harassed or cut down for simply speaking out? Who does the cutting down?
Thing is, it is the ones whom are legislating the anti-anonymity bill who are doing the cutting down, either directly or indirectly. The ones whom are
the real threats to freedom operate from the dark, knows the dark well and will use the light to fool freedom and truth searchers to be lured out and
We mankind are not living in disneyland today.
There will come a time when names will have to be used to get things done, but when it is unnecessary, anonymity will protect one's message, for one
can only fight fire with fire, as those in power too are using the dark to achieve their agendas and aims.
If an issue is real and true, there is no lie or falsehood or halftruths that can detract it, for truths are realities and cannot be hidden or
destroyed. Thus there should be no fear of lies and whatnots from others.
The only thing one has to fear is that a lie had been promoted as truth, and thus the promoters of lies would definately not want the truth to be
found out, and thus will demand those who speak the truth stand in the light, not to be thanked, but to be silenced or slayed, as happened in China
and repressive states.
However, for those who misuse the priviledge of anonymity such inciting hatred and murder, let us not be naive - the authorities do have the
capabilities to track them down. An impartial court order is all it takes, and fully justifiable.
