This dead horse isn’t dead enough
Yesterday Sit Down, Press Play closed it’s doors and blacked out in participation of internet strike against SOPA and PIPA. The act of shutting down this one small blog alone probably didn’t do a drastic amount, but as a whole with the rest of the web, with you guys spreading it on facebook, twitter, other social networks, and with the many videos on Youtube, it sends a clear message to those responsible. It says if you decide to mess with the internet you have to face against tens of millions of people worth of opposition. This is one of the few political issues that I’ve seen nothing but a unanimous NO from all people of all political backgrounds. The bottom line is that SOPA does not benefit any of us in any way and only help advance a few, and that is not good governing.
It’s not over yet, SOPA and PIPA has been delayed, but we are gaining ground. More and more are coming to their senses (or public pressure) and are starting to drop support for SOPA. Keep it up internet, I don’t think they understand the kind of power you actually hold.
