...Though only the UK has had the strength of vision and fortitude to suggest re-education camps... so far. ...

LOL. Yes, one has to admire them for that... so much for "the birthplace of Westminster democracy".

The UK is a wonderful utopia of the most sensitive and caring people. Heck, if want to publish an autobiography (where nobody disputes any facts), and it could potentially, possibly hurt even just 1 person's feelings, well, you don't get to publish.

Now, try and name just 1 other country where people care so much. (North Korea doesn't count.)

This is the last email we send before Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Trade Ministers meet at the APEC summit in Beijing.1 This meeting is “...seen as an occasion for concluding the TPP talks”.2
We need you to please take this final opportunity to contribute so we can reach people with our powerful new free expression video.
We know that the more people know about TPP Internet censorship, the harder it will be for political leaders to advance it.
That’s why we need our video to spread like wildfire -- Will you take this last chance make sure it goes viral?
$10 will mean our video is seen by 100 people
$20 will mean 200 people watch our video
$50 will get us 500 views
$100 will get us 1000 views
Any amount at all will help

Recent leaks show that negotiators are closer than ever to reaching agreement,3 and sadly, the TPP is still pushing reckless Internet censorship that will make the Internet more expensive and policed.
Your support today will mean we can buy the social media advertising we need to make sure our powerful new video goes viral. Can you chip in today?

For Free Expression,
Meghan & Jason, on behalf of your OpenMedia team

P.S.: The APEC Summit starts tomorrow, and trade ministers are meeting this weekend. We have to act quickly to get our message out -- please help us tell the world what’s at risk in the TPP by donating today.

At their website:
REVEALED: “Chief negotiators” are stepping in to finalize a Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) plan that could censor expression online for generations.1 2

Your comments on mobile platforms, content on YouTube, and posts on Facebook could be censored. Whole websites could even be blocked.3

They are trying to finalize this censorship plan in secretive TPP meetings from which the public and civic interest groups are completely excluded: Let’s raise a loud global call for TPP chief negotiators to back off and save free expression before it's too late  ------>

TPP negotiators received citizen comments in a recent face-to-face meeting with OpenMedia,4 but now chief negotiators are stepping in to ram the censorship plan into place.

62,780 signatures (and counting)!

Is it any wonder the treaty freaks are alway at it? At least the military speaks a bit better English so that not everything is newspeak.

A US marshal just had my blog (where I commit through crimes) taken down. I've got it back up now.

No further comment except in the Basement.

Lesson Learned: Yes. It can happen to you.
