I wouldn't exactly say censoring textbooks is 'corrupt'. And the UK's probably not that much different, but people arent generally as fat..
WTF? Oh, I understand!...and sea can't be used in case a student lives inland and doesn't grasp the concept of a large body of water.
Well, it doesn't take much to be able to bring a lawsuit, but that doesn't mean the plaintiff will win. Also, there are some pretty silly local laws. Still, I think a substantial part of the problem is that freedom in this country is viewed as something to be enshined in principle, not exemplified in practice. The federal government is far from totalitarian, but there does seem to have been a slow authoritarian slide in the past 6 years or so (or maybe it's been going on longer and I've only started noticing it).Dunno... I see so much of those "weird new law from USA bans <insert something here>" or the "man/woman was lawsuited/arrested due to <instert super stupid reason here>" going on that I still fail to see in what USA is so more "free" them all other countries out there.
It's been gaining momentum and speeding up the more progress it makes. Where the hell are we going to be in 2008 after another term of Bush? I shudder to think.Originally posted by ExCyber@Jun 6, 2003 @ 11:42 PM
