Let's wash our hands of SOPA
Politicians don't have enough to do, what with massive unemployment, environmental disaster, etc. Instead, they are focused on chipping away our rights (yes, free speech is a right). SOPA is one such effort, but some of the top sites on Internet -- including Wikipedia, Google, and Craigslist -- have joined the protest against the proposed law. These and other sites have black banners, while others such as Reddit have gone completely dark
If you're not quite sure what internet censorship is about, check out Gizmodo's answer to the question: What is SOPA? Also, watch Clay Shirky's Ted Talk: Defend Our Freedom to Share (or why SOPA is a bad idea).
Don't let the man (or women) take away our freedoms... in this country, supposedly the land of the free.
