SOPA will be ineffective and unenforceable, just like the DMCA is right now. Honestly, I'd rather it pass so more people wake up and realize how fucked our government really is. I think it will take people having their toys (internet as we know it) taken away for them to realize it because it airport security, deficit spending, unnecessary wars, institutionalized drug smuggling, the drug war, and now, covert wars with Pakistan and Iran... all haven't been enough. But threaten Facebook and YouTube and IT'S ON MOTHERFUCKERS. I don't get it. You're completely right if you think the government doesn't want people to have the ability to freely communicate with anyone in the world at any time.
