    ...that you're not trying to read MR in Burma tonight.







    Of course, I'm being a little flippant by citing reading MR as an example.

    That is terrifying to think of a screenshot being taken... and even worse, being jailed for what you say online?! :eek:

    I'd have an overwhelming urge to find all the big pictures of a giant middle finger with **** YOU written underneath.. that being said, I have no idea if the middle finger translates to Burma, probably not. Maybe the 2 finger salute?

    Western companies creating the technological tools of repression. That's immoral and should be illegal. And yes, I realize that that means that the Google founders should be in jail right now.

    And please don't take this line of reasoning to extremes - that Rumsfeld's taxi driver is guilty of Abu Ghraib. These tech companies are specifically giving these totalitarian regimes the means of control.

    Just as Prescott Bush did in the 30's aiding the financing of Hitler's re-armamant of Germany when in the late 30's and into 1940 over half of the tanks were supplied to Germany by GM & Ford.

    The profits Mr Bush made bankrolled his sons new oil company, and yes it's that Bush family.
