DeSopa :: Add-ons for Firefox

By all means give this a try but, so far, it hasn’t done too well for me. No doubt better tools are in the pipeline.

More important is that you understand why this or something like it has become necessary. The bare bones are in the summary by the author.

The fraudulent SOPA legislation currently in the process of becoming law is the most ambitious acceleration of the Police State since the infamous USAPATRIOT Act in the opportunistic kneejerk response to 9-11. Unlike that one, however, this one is at least being discussed prior to implementation, which has given the American public the chance to oppose it. Whether they are successful depends how much American mainstream media is collaborating with the Police State. If they are in favour of the proposed oppressive measures, their skills at “Manufacturing Consent” are, to date, somewhat higher than opponents’ abilities to manufacture dissent. If, on the other hand, they join the fight, Congress could be intimidated into backing down.

Ostensibly, the legislation is aimed at stopping so called Piracy. The not so hidden agenda, however, is the overt establishment of the infrastructure required to run a functioning Police State in the age of the internet. Censorship is an absolute requirement for totalitarian control and many of the tools required to implement that censorship are contained in this so called “anti piracy” bill.

Software like the one described in this article are the opponents’ own kneejerk response to the censorship and my money is still on the geeks to outsmart the authoritarians.
