Censorship Sucks by Phil Jones
Prints available at society6. See, this is why we cant have nice things, tumblr… because you insist every cock and pussy in existence be censored from your delicate sensibilities. Where does it end?
CISPA: Say Hello To Big Brother
Worse than SOPA and PIPA, deliberately vague and gives the government and corporations litigation immunity from playing loose with your data. Take a moment and contact your legislator →
What if the biggest websites in the country were to temporarily shut down their services and instead inform visitors of the dangers of SOPA?
As the man say: Don’t just reblog this and feel like you helped the world because you’re half-assing it. Sign it. Reblog it. Sign it and reblog it.
I, for one, find Tumblr one of the more reliable sources of information and one of the most up to date. We knew about the content of Obama’s impromptu surprise announcement before he announced it himself, just to name an example. The same difference applies to Youtube, so when I see things like this:
Sssssooooo…the government is enforcing copyright. Without proof or hearing they uproot a UK resident and SHIP HIM OVER to be persecuted in the US. WITHOUT PROOF.
Now we have The IP Act that is on the fast track of becoming a law.
An except that summarizes what this does: “The PROTECT IP Act would allow copyright owners – movie studios and other content providers – simply to accuse a website of infringement, which could lead to that site being shut down by court order and entire links to the site being wiped clean from the Internet.”
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that if you even pass a disagreeable fart, a big angry fist will punch you in the butthole and seal said butthole forever.
WHERE’S OUR SHIT GONNA GO?
So the title of this, while an exaggeration of something that hasn’t happened, is a very real possibility and it’s so close to happening.
Don’t just reblog this and feel like you helped the world because you’re half-assing it. Sign it. Reblog it. Sign it and reblog it.
Sign everything and anything you can.
But most importantly…
