    EU passes new copyright regulation that is tantamount to internet censorship

    This could be much worse than it sounds, it's not merely just a matter of "copyright" protections like one would think.






    Basically internet forums like this one would cease to exist. Posting images, links to news websites, even news headlines, would no longer be allowed.

    Europeans, like Russians, seem to always prefer life under the control of Totalitarians.

    I don't think they even care if they care if said Totalitarians are elected or not.

    Remember: THIS very social dynamic, is the reason many of us are in the United States......
    Al Swearengen: What's your partner so mad about all the time?
    Sol Star: He's not mad.
    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.

    China crushes Internet dissent with the Great Firewall. Europe uses copyright law.

    Same effect. Deserves the same derision. Just a mechanism for government control of the national discourse. Fascism on its face.

    Of course fascism is just a subset of socialism.
