Act Now Against ACTA by Humble-Novice Act Now Against ACTA by Humble-Novice
First it was SOPA and PIPA, and now this? The higher-ups have gone too far this time.... If you thought the aforementioned bills were controversial, then ACTA is far more serious in that other countries besides the U.S. have agreed to sign this treaty. From an objective standpoint, this agreement allows authority officials to do more than shut down websites accused of infringing on copyrights. It potentially enables them to tighten border control by forcing passengers to hand over devices such as laptops and phones to check for any pirated material. To us, it feels more like an invasion of privacy which is a great concern for just about everyone. Can you feel the rage and anger already?

On a side note, while US signed this treaty, it will not ratify it, so they can profit from benefits without committing to too many potential risks.

Isn't this great? We pay the government to supposedly protect us, and they just want to make the country like 1984. What's next - telescreens to watch us shower?

I'm predicting rebellion if they keep trying this crap - and especially if any of it passes. I'm against piracy, but this isn't even an attempt at really preventing it. Politicians need to use their minds instead of their wallets to get the solution.

More like the Communists we rivaled in the Cold War, only to start these ideas ourselves WITHOUT a Russian invasion! U.S. govt, let this middle schooler tell you. George Washington and many others in the early days of America won us from the tyranny of England's taxes to create a nation for us to be free. They spent long hours trying to figure out how to make the most fair, sustainable government. It was a very tall task for him and the leaders of the 13 Colonies, many wanting to give up and use the same Monarchy system. Washington bravely led us through deciding this with a promise: fairness and equality for all without oppression and darkness in a Monarchy. This is the promise of the Constitution, the promise of America! To do otherwise is to undo all our hard work! Break our own rules for government and take the easy way out, giving up on the democracy that we have relied on since 1776! If Washington gave up, we may still be 13 colonies ruled and heavily persecuted by England! To do this is un Constitutional, un American! This is not right! The Government should not have the legal right to do this! Not by the Constitution! No president in history would be this selfish! Remember White House, this is a native son of America and I am being free as America should be!
