Attention, all computer-using citizens of the United States. EMIGRATE NOW. Hot on the heels of the insanely unconstitutional DMCA, which was amusingly bad, comes the SSSCA, which is just frighteningly bad. As reported on Slashdot, this would make it illegal -- under severe penalties -- to own a hard drive or other storage device which did not "utilize certified security technologies". What the **** is up with that?
Further down in that discussion is an amusing/scary comparison to the the situation with illegal drug use. I had no idea the government was trying to crack down on Raves; what a fucking fascist country the "land of the free" is. And the sad thing is, I bet the UK follows suit pretty soon. Sigh. I need to move to Mars; this world is shit.
