Soft Totalitarism, USA paving the way

We do get in spades that thing which we can call "correct speak", a fancy mutual border between newspeak land and the republic of political correctness. It's getting better by the day. Now, we have CISPA : enhanced and greened (source: techdirt).
You had NDAA a couple months ago, but most American citizens just swallowed it. The very fact that this kind of horror can be proposed, move to the House and have a decent chance of getting a legion of thumb ups is already worrying, to say the least.
You know, if there's no solid reaction to that kind of crap, it can only get worse. Those who push such thins won't stop.

There's nothing better than terrorism or pedophilia to induce mass hysteria and coerce, manipulate and control gullible ignoramuses. I hope Obama follows through on his threat to veto it.
