starsrift: DreamSnipers: A rare time I am proud of my countries policies. We are actually standing up for freedom.No. They're not. They're standing up for the ability to let the MPAA and associated lobbyists regulate the internet, instead of the UN.That's all this is. And sure, protectionism is fine, but the bottom line is that I'd rather have the UN regulate the internet than the MPAA. Though either way is farked, and if it was up to me, the answer would be 'none of the above'.
