Reddit dies

Well, I think it's safe to say that the order came down from the-great-eye-worshipped-by-the-fearful, and commanded reddit to fall into step with the rest of the mainstream media.

In addition to the censorship enacted on /r/politics as seen in the video above, this post [original cached] was recently made (and subsequently removed in a staggering show of cowardice) to /r/worldnews to let us know that news of SOPA/ACTA/PIPA/CISPA would no longer be tolerated on that sub. Nor would news of the secret preparations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership be allowed. The broken logic behind this, delivered in one voice by various shills upon challenge, is this: "Once the american initiative to collar, monitor and completely monetize the (global) internet becomes a reality, then it will become world news. Until then, it's US politics, which of course you can freely post to any of our other (also censored) subs (if you can get it seen among all the cat pictures)." I guess someone got tired of renaming their little draconian pet projects.

From posting links to /r/worldnews and a few other subs about the TPP a few months ago, I know that this is simply the visible part of reddit's censorship. During that time a few months ago, before TPP-related links were allowed to make it to the front page of any sub, I noticed that the posts relating to TPP were simply disappeared. You could still find it via the URL, but in the sub's "new" list, and even in searches, the TPP links were simply not there to be seen or upvoted.

The masks are coming off. Presidents go on national teevee and simply lie to the public, knowing that everyone knows they're lying, knowing that they are completely opposing the heartfelt lies they made months ago that allowed them to keep their skins for another quarter. It seems they have forgotten which hand feeds them. It seems they haven't counted how many people they left with nothing to lose. Jokes about the stupidity of politicians and their attending co-parasites are everyday, and yet this show of it is unbelievable. Impressive, even. The novelty will soon wear off.

We have the power. The people who possess of consciousness have the ability to do just about anything, once we have decided on it. Many with this ability have not yet awakened. It seems that maybe the ride on the gravy train got to be too smooth, and many of its occupants decided it was time for the wheels to come off. I won't argue with them, but thanks for the help.
