Default SOPA/PIPA/CISPA

Some of you may not be paying attention or know or care about The Stop online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act "SOPA/PIPA" so I'll post some info.

First how will this directly affect you as a Lumi?

Our domain theluminaires.net is currently registered through godaddy.com

godaddy.com are supporters of sopa/pipa I am not therefore I will be transferring our domain to a new anti sopa/pipa registry and then godaddy can go fuck itself.

I'll most likely move our domain to namecheap.com's registry. I will do this on the morning of the 29th of December the official leave godaddy day everything should go smoothly without hiccups but if you have trouble connecting to theluminaries.net this day it shouldn't take more then 72 hours for your isp to catch up. I'm not moving our host just the domain registry.



Now onto what SOPA and PIPA are.

Unreal. George Orwell wrote of a thought control worse than 1984 that would dawn in 2050, and he called it Newspeak. A language that restricts thoughts of freedom and independent thinking by not having such words in its dictionary. We know from Steven Pinker that language is merely a poor tool to express thought, but is not a propagator of it. The actual thoughts of freedom and independence live without the boundaries of diction, and our thoughts are far more expressive and intricate than any language can express, and certainly not "contain".

If Orwell had lived long enough to see the Internet, and how it became the collective thought sharing of all humanity, he would realise this was his Newspeak. It is for us to use as a massive sharing device, a kind of holographic mindshare of our species, but its control would funnel ideas and narrow opinions. Did we not have this crap before in the endless heinous crimes of religion? In this auspicious time of year with its corporate pied piper, Santa, we have seen the face that channels consumption.

considering they are exempt from sopa lawsuits because they helped draft parts of it I'd say it's just PR. I'm still transferring our domain elsewhere even though it's good till 2013.

well since you asked :
racism , sexism , homophobia, and a desire to undue everything the civil rights movement in america accomplished .


I like ron paul in theory , but in reality he takes things too far. Ron Paul's individual liberty > all else doctrine would bring us back to jim crow laws and whites only establishements , after all who is the government to tell you who you have to serve ?
