In nature, few elements exist in a pure state. The rest are altered at will by other "elements" depending upon "conditions". That got me thinking about life, language itself, and speech.
Freedom of Speech.
Freedom of speech seldom exists in a "Pure" State.
Is freedom of speech imagined, or real? Does it even exist? Is it secure?
Politically-cantankerous, unsettled Iran is testing it's own "Halal" internet system
Shall we hypothesize that the "global" Internet within Iran shall be simultaneously shut down and freedom of speech shall cease to exist?
Perhaps it is both logical reasonable to assume Iranian bureaucrats, madmen and Mullah's alike will attempt to do so. They don't like riots and protest much. Will they be successful? Only time will tell, --but while we wait and see, let us look closer to home.
Is the North American Internet, --that would be the one you hook onto if you want to talk to your uncle in Great Britain, Australia, or Japan, yes that one, the Internet reaching around the globe. Is it any more secure here than in Iran ?
Here at Incoming Bytes I believe the question must be asked:
At what point do power-hungry and devious politicians, bureaucrats and corporate North America decide "they" will determine which information, global transfer of data and daily communications shall be available to you, the brave reader of Incoming Bytes who dares to think, and the average citizen, collectively known as the apathetic, reality-show T.V. loving 'masses?'
In return for campfire-loving demonstrators "Occupying this"
Will Corporate/Political North America, like Iran, also decide to limit free speech and even move to "occupy" the minds of society in it's entirety?
Take a deep breath. Think clearly.
.......Let us not panic, be naive or silly. How else would we know when to spend,
Fear not; the self-declared pure and self-righteous shall guide you in times of uncertainty. "Big Money" will help "Big Brother" set you on the path to righteousness and purity and profit and big-screen television -in 3D. Don't forget to put on the "special
"Big Brother" knows what's best for You....
After all, freedom of speech seldom exists in a "pure" state"....
That's my story and I'm sticking to it
