prisonplanet.jpgWell, maybe not the beginning, but the next step in the progression of oppression. There has been a few news articles over the last few weeks that I think it worth pointing out.

Lets start with new Airport security scanners that see right through clothing, I wonder what kinda cancer causing energy they will be found to use eventually. Ref. Ref. Ref.

H.R. 4279: Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act of 2008:
Intellectual Property Enforcement Division within the office of the Deputy Attorney General. Rep. John Conyers says the goal is to ‘prioritize intellectual property protection to the highest level of our government.’” Ref. Ref.

Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), which will allow Canadian/foreign border security enforce copyright laws without actually requiring a complaint from the copyright holder. This would be a license for the government fine/tax and steal when it involves the confiscation/destruction of actual property. In other words, don’t travel with copies of your music or movies on your computer or media player, even if you own a legal copy but don’t have original on you. Ref.

Lastly, is a warning for anyone traveling with a computer to the USA, to know that all personal data can be copied/examined, including personal legal/business documents, deleted Internet history, email and more. Data collected has successfully been used in prosecution already, and I’d be almost willing to bet that when an international business person is searched, copies of any potentially useful economic information will be saved. Ref.

Our freedoms are constantly under attack, and even when we stop one offensive, 5 more follow it below radar. Ultimately getting the undesired laws installed. When have you ever known laws to be relaxed without revolution/riot?
