It's seems trying to start ipp trade or something. Basically, it would have a 3 strikes rule and if you're caught you can never go online again is what I gathered. Here's the link below for more information. Could anyone please sign this petition and get the world out?

You know, I might pay attention to these internet censorship petitions if they actually listed what was going to happen instead of using sensationalist rhetoric. Something as simple as, "If this passes, _______ would become a felony," would suffice.

Why stop at one petition? There are plenty.

Pretty sure whatever they are planning to do is not transparent to us. So that's really the main issue as you pointed out.

I don't understand how democratic governments are allowed to make laws that the people don't want.

2 major flaws I can think of.
1. Public internet, not everything can be blocked so schools and libraries would be without internet in no time xD
2. No ISP would willingly kick off it's customers, it would lead to a massive crash depending on how strict it is, casual piracy is incredibly common especially with younger generations, who hasn't gotten a few songs or caught up on tv shows on a less than reputable site these days.

The US isn't a true democracy but a democratic republic. We have the power to elect representatives for us but the downside is that they feel entitled to do whatever the hell they want.

I wouldn't want a direct democracy anyways, we are too knee-jerk in decisions during bad times.
