Social and economical politics.

Sounds like a heavy, brooding subject, does it not? Well, it’s really not that hard thing
in this case. I just want make you think for yourself as usual. Today, the internet is
a fairy free thing and we can surf pretty much where we want, and it doesnt cost
us more then the subscription. That might change and according to some people, that
is a good thing. You should have to pay for everything. Funny, I thought I already did
but thats beside the point. Now, in sweden we have the FRA scanning all datatraffic going
abroad, meaning MOST of all the internet traffic. So, no privacy there. Then, we have
the media companies sniffing around the internet trying to pick up potential pirates
regardless of where im surfing, since, to get to the point where they can indentify me
they have to have read my datatraffic. Interresting? Where will this end?

Anyhow, back on track some. Sweden has a political freedom and a freedom of speech
that has been moderated and are more and more getting torn asunder from companies
greed, and the need to “keep a proper face” seems to override the fact that it is every
mans right to be politically active in WHATEVER POLITICAL PARTY HE FANCIES. That goes
for both LEFT AND RIGHT wings. Im not saying either side deserves a bigger break, im stating
that they should BOTH have rights. I may not enjoy the policies, but according to swedish
laws, they have a right to voice them, at least to an extent.

Now, people are starting to be afraid to mention their political branch. Why? Well, its
pure and simple economy and social status. There was a good example a few months
back of what companies can do. Some it guy in Örebro got FIRED for having discussions
about his sympaties with the pirate party. Now, the company stated “his views was not good for
the company’s image. Now, hows that for job security. So what will happen? With this
open neglect for the personal integrity that has walked all over us? Well, if you can stand
to read some Swedish, here’s a treat. Lisa Magnusson at Aftonbladet has picked together
a little story of what might happen when “the taliban law of telecom” gets passed. Trust me
it wont make a lick of difference what we, the actual people want, since the politicians
are either A: watching their own asses, or B: taking “gift” money from the record industry.
Here is the link to the story in any case :

Lisa Magnusson om EU:s telekompaket och framtidens internet

Now, really.. Can someone stop the hysteria train, because I for one dont want to voice my political
views, because at the rate things are going now, In a few years I will most likely be arrested by the RIAAPTF
(Recording industries association of america’s Police Task Force) and hauled to the deepest dungeon
until I agree to write their propaganda instead of protesting against laws in one of the few ways I can.

Too all you other critics of the Telecom law.. We can all sing kubayah together in our cell in 10-20 years.

Politics without solutions

On what does one base an application for political
asylum? Think about it. Even globally, software and
hardware downloads are increasing, and the companies
that hunts them are being more and more ruthless

What REALLY scares me is that the governments makes
more and more laws that are digging in deep into
the integrity of their citizens just because of one
single thing. Money. The RIAA has got more funding
then a lot of countries has BNP, and still they are
claiming that they are not making enough. Fine.

Now just to make you a little view on why I am
fuming about money and the record industry.

This month, there was a court session regarding
a very well known artist. Björn Ulvaeus, one of
the men in the once HUGE band ABBA. Now, he
has on numerous occasions thundered in media regarding
the shameful acts of downloading songs, because that
is stealing money from him. Ok, I can see why
he would be a little miffed. Im not sure that he
gets that much per song, but seeing how big
ABBA used to be, there has to have been a lot
of downloads that he hasnt gotten the royalties
for. That might be a few 100 thousand SEK.

BUT here comes the kicker. He got an 85 MILLION
SEK TAX REFUND! 85 frigging millions is a lot more
then he would ever be able to spend if he just
saved it. I mean, seriously. The interrest alone
is a lot more from any bank then what a standard
student/wageslave does in a year.

So, ok. jealousy is not a commendable trait, I know
that but I will never ever even get HALF of what
this man got as a tax refund, much less in savings.
Is it so wrong of me to enjoy art in various ways,
to be able to listen, hear and feel the feelings
that he once tried to give the world anew?

Musicians starts with music for pretty much 3 reasons
1. The money
2. Share the art
3. Become famous.

But for some reason, when they achieved number 3
the first takes precedence and becomes all compassing.
They are famous and richer then trolls sleeping on troves
of gold, yet they grasp for more. Jealousy isn’t a commendable
trait, but Greed is one of the seven deadly sins.

Now the world is coming to : You want beauty, you need cash
You aint got cash, you aint getting art.

So now I want to ask political asylum from whatever nation
doesnt dance to the tunes of the lobbyists that wants to
restrain entertainment and art so hard that it chokes
on the money that they cant digest.

I usually dont write in swedish but..

I really cant be arsed to translate both of these articles.
So, heres what Expressen has to say today.

Tolgfors: Inga kompromisser

Det blir inga fler kompromisser när tilläggen till
FRA-lagen ska klubbas i höst.  Det beskedet ger
försvarsminister Sten Tolgfors till Expressen. Därmed
nobbar han centerpartisternas ansträngningar för att
begränsa spionlagen.

– Det har gjorts en uppgörelse mellan fyra partiledare,
säger Sten Tolgfors.

I går berättade Expressen att en majoritet av svenska folket
vill riva upp FRA-lagen, enligt en färsk undersökning från Demoskop.
Statsminister Fredrik Reinfeldt tänker inte lyssna på den opinionen.
Han hävdar att integritetsfrågorna får tillräckligt skydd när
tilläggspropositionen om signalspaningslagen tas i riksdagen i höst.

Filar på kravlista
En rad centerpartistiska FRA-kritiker – med riksdagsledamoten
Fredrick Federley och Stockholmscenterns ordförande Per Ankersjö
i spetsen – filar nu på en kravlista med kompletteringar till
höstens propositionen.

Men försvarsminister Sten Tolgfors gör klart att han har kompromissat

– Det har gjorts en uppgörelse mellan fyra partier och fyra
partiledare om vad de kompletteringarna ska innehålla. D
et är det som är grunden för vad som kommer att ske i höst, s
äger han.

Dumheter, hävdar Per Ankersjö:
– Det är ett tag kvar, så jag tror att det är dumt att på
förhand låsa in sig i ett hörn på det sättet. Man måste
till hänsyn till den massiva folkstorm som har varit, säger han.
Ödmjuk och lyssnande
Han tillägger att han möter en ödmjuk och lyssnande inställning
från sin egen partiledning. Centerledaren Maud Olofsson har de
senaste dagarna hållit en låg profil i FRA-frågan, och var i
går inte tillgänglig för kommentarer.
Partisekreteraren Anders Flanking tillbringade kvällen i ett
möte med rebellerna i centeruppropet, som kräver att hela
signalspaningen ska bort.

– Vi tycker att man ska ta dialogen, och det är det som vi gör,
säger han till Expressen.


Tiefensee avfärdar expertens kritik
Expressen gör fel i att använda begreppet “avlyssna”,
hävdar riksdagsledamoten Roger Tiefensee (c).
Därför skickade han ut ett svar till alla väljare som
mejlat honom.

– Att använda begreppet avlyssning leder tanken fel, säger han.

Mer än sex miljoner protestmelj skickades via
formulär till de riksdagsledamöter som röstade ja till nya
FRA-lagen, Roger Tiefensee (c) svarade de som mejlade honom
och hävdade att ett påstående inte stämmer.

Han säger att begreppet avlyssning är fel att använda.
– Trafiken kommer att passera genom ett filter och scannas
av, men inte avlyssnas om det handlar om två svenska användare.
Då kommer det att raderas och därmed inte avlyssnas, säger
Roger Tiefensee.

Experter påstår att det är svårt att sortera ut trafiken utan
att öppna den. – Man scannar av flödet, men det är fysiskt
omöjligt att öppna alla mejlen, utan det blir som en fartkamera.
Att använda begreppet avlyssning leder tanken fel.
Men är det inte bara vetskapen av att sina mejl kan öppnas
som inskränker på integriteten?

– Det är en avvägning. Det är klart att det här innebär en
inskränkning i den personliga integriteten, men att det sedan även
handlar om vår säkerhetspolitik.

intressant eller inte?
