Internet freedom and privacy are effectively dead. That's all I can say about this disgusting bill. I've been worried about the activities of the last few months, particularly relating to the NDAA and other bills like PIPA, CISPA. We can't take this sitting down, this is clearly unconstitutional and the mere concept of such a bill violates our most basic rights. Why is it that we refer to precursor bills as a slippery slope? Shit like this. We allow one bill to be passed which allows for a violation of privacy and it allows for other minor "tweaks" to the bill to further that violation. What is stopping the Government from using this bill to further establish its watchful eye into every facet of our lives? What if they tap into our webcams? What if they tap into our microphones? What if they tap into our computers as a whole and can then extract any bit of information necessary?

I'm serious guys, this is some REAL ass shit.

Here's Obama, your president talking about how safe the bill is.

Not that I'm for reducing freedom/privacy of internet but I feel like people get way too concerned about the government having their information. Chances are they don't GAF about your taste in porn or the media you torrent, or your chat logs with your stupid friends, and you'll notice little to no difference. Your info might end up part of a larger statistic but unless there are some SERIOUS red flags somewhere in your behavior online it probably won't even be looked at just logged away somewhere.

Also the government has been ignoring people's rights regardless of the law when it suits them since pretty much forever. In principle, I see why there's an objection though, but unless you're involved in some affected occupation..I don't see why you shouldn't just "take it sitting down."

What bill? It's not a bill. It's not an act.

probably preaching to the converted here, most people on this site i'd bet have realised that these repressive laws and behaviour by government in the name of an endless war on terror is bullshit

same thing is happening in the UK after the woolwich attack,

guy gets beheaded > we should introduce laws to collect internet history, wat?

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Ah, the overused American quote. Definition of essential liberty differs from culture to culture, country to country.

I've actually been working on a surveillance program that crawls the web and logs data on every one. I even added a free file storage and email service that scans anything you pass through it.

everybody who says that he doesnt care about the government having access to basically everything that you did on social media platforms or even the whole google services is extremely naive and should get his brain checked.

the argument 'i'm not a criminal and therefore i dont care about this, they are not interested in my porn folder' is pretty ridiculous.
data is power.

someone on reddit explained it by using his own country as an example. definitely worth reading.

so regardless of how livid you are over this whole thing can we at least not do shit like this please:

What do you do? You fight. Take it to the streets. Gather en masse. Protest. Protect yourselves. Destroy the order that those who seek to control you thrive on. March on Washington. Shut down your PCs. Wreak havoc on the economy. And spread your thoughts and opinions as far and as wide as humanly possible.

I truly feel this is one of the most pivotal moments in your history. This is as close to Civil War as you've come since your Civil War.


1k+ upvoted post on reddit calling for protests and riots because of something that has gone on for years that nobody knew about because it had no effect on their lives

please, spread your thoughts and opinions to your heart's content but calling for people to march on washington and saying the 2nd american revolution is imminent over something like this? i realize the concern for privacy and why people would be extremely upset over this but i'm just saying don't take it too far and blow it up into something worse than it really is

Here's how it probably happens. You look up how to make a bomb, or anthrax or ricin, you set off a notification. Then they probably do a quick search to see if you're talking to any dangerous people or if they think you're likely to act on those searches.

Unless you're planning on blowing something up, they don't give a fuck what you do. Same goes for those scanners at the airports. Everyone flips a shit because you have to go through a scanner, but it doesn't impact you in the slightest unless you're hiding a bomb in your pants.
