USA Internet policy before-after 2012 by ItalianDragon USA Internet policy before-after 2012 by ItalianDragon
Here is another art piece related to the behaviour the USA have since the early 2012.
I searched for a long time the right way to depict what i felt and I finally managed to reach that by making a mashup between the Nazi flag and the US flag.

I am sure that this will raise some controversy but hell, it seems that it's going in that direction : cops in full riot gear brutally dispatching peaceful protesters, cops tasing unarmed persons just because htey acted a bit aggressively while being evacuated or spraying straight in the face peaceful manifestants, well I'm sorry, but these are totalitarian measures. In addition of that there's Kim Dotcom's arrest who wasn't even on the US soil and who got arrested anyway. This is again a totalitarian measure ( remember the deportation of Jews by Nazi germany from France or other countries ? Well it's moretheless the same thing but for a single person - so far.

So if you share my views I encourage you to repost this or to modify it as much as you feel ( motivational poster, Y U NO guy memes and so on ) to spread the word and show to the masses that if this keeps on going like this, we're going straight towards confrontation, and that if we don't do anything we're gonna be crushed like nothing because of money greedy people and the will of control over everything and everyone of others.

PS: the Nazi-ish flag text says in Latin "Join us or perish"

The way you have used the US flag and have it twisted and transformed into the evilest of symbols is a pretty eye-opening message and it does sugest that, if this does go though, the internet world as we know it will be succumb to the wraith of a very bad idea! I have given it five stars across the line for it's simple, yet alarming message that, even if it isn't fancy, deserves a daily deviation! It should be featured in someway because... well I just feel like i'm repeating myself but yes this needs to be featured in some way!
And a +1 Watch for you, sir!

If i say, senators that suggest ACTA has been selfishly acting on their own. You see, MegaUpload is shut down because of a piece of law which /hasn't been approved yet/. Also, the internet will be a sorrowful place with ACTA.
Since this thing is based on patents, the effect will be worse than the previous SOPA. It can give big corporations to stop small one and stop them from growing. Which is harsh, so stopping it is a must if you still have feelings.
For you sir, you did good, using a "bad" logo for the US flag since they are the ones who have been acting selfishly: Technique = 5*. Also you did this to stop tragic things from happening: Vision = 5*.

I wrote a skit about a Chinese sister site to MegaUpload where a similar thing happened but many years later. my idea was about a site that functioned more like WikiLeaks where someone could view news articles and documentaries that were banned in China. As well is Chinese secret documentaries and military secrets.

It'd be some sort of hybrid between a file hosting website and a Wikileaks-like site right ? IMO that'd be a very very good idea but it'd have to be heavily secured to avoid precisely those that we want to expose becoming aware of that.

the Chinese website called MegaUproad (which i thought of) allows a Chinese person to obtain political documentaries about China and other nations, Chinese military secrets, Chinese secret documents, Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt and LinkTV documentaries like Koch Brothers exposed. before MegaUproad will be seized by Chinese authorities in 2020 they knew about it for years and tracks down and arrests those who viewed the banned in China website material, site admins, and the creators of popular MegaUproad channels. MegaUproad is created by a man named Kim Bei Fong (he changed his name after his second favorite earthbender in Avatar, His favorite is King Bumi and Kim feels he should of had more screen time). Kim Bei Fong is also known for his commentaries on Chinese policy and life on his MegaUproad channel. One popular commentary is about the censorship done by the Chinese version of the MPAA called Horrywood famously called by Kim Bei Fong "the Chinese counterpart to 4Kids". Horrywood dubbed and toned down movies that were banned in China and edited these films into China friendly forms. Wonder how Kim DotCom feels about my parody. This skit can be seen on my Deviantart deviations page and stuff. There is also a bit about a corrupt political party that put the entire Stop Online Piracy Act on a seemingly innocent bill putting restrictions on NSA intelligence gathering practices.

That'd be an interesting platform for sure but like always the biggest difficulty would be making sure that those who get denounced in the documents can't access the website or any of the documents. However the idea is pretty cool IMO :)

A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.
Besides that, totalitarism caused the death of my grand-grandpa on my italian side ( he got deported by Mussolini and died in labor camps).
So I cannot simplt tolerate in any shape or form what caused the death of a memeber of my family among many others nor I will tolerate its immaterial internet counterpart.
