A Beautiful Summation of SOPA by Khan Academy

SOAPBOX: To me, the so-called ‘Stop Online Piracy Act’ is one of the most frightening foreshadowings of how the corporate control of our government is attempting to destroy what little Democracy we have left. Isn’t this the kind of crap the Chinese government practices? The only difference is, this is disguised as doing something that sounds reasonable.

Here is a quote I saw on Wil Wheaton’s blog today:“Why is it that when Republicans and Democrats need to solve the budget and the deficit, there’s deadlock, but when Hollywood lobbyists pay them $94 million dollars to write legislation, people from both sides of the aisle line up to co-sponsor it?
–Reddit Founder Alexis Ohanian on CNBC.

And HERE is a video from Khan Academy that succinctly explains this whole SOPA mess. Please watch it!

That is all from the Soapbox today…
