If no one said All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.”, then someone should have, because it is true. The same thing goes for bullies and injustice. As scary as it can be, if you are going to consider yourself human, then you have to speak out for what it right.

In a heartening move Canada has postponed the idea of a new law that would have enabled the monitoring of the use of the Internet by its citizens. http://www.linkedin.com/groupAnswers?viewQuestionAndAnswers=&discussionID=126501094&gid=42462&trk=eml-anet_dig-b_nd-pst_ttle-cn&ut=2Yb8RrbBpQW5g1
As I reported in a recent Blog the UK is passing a bill to allow law enforcement to monitor UK citizens in their use of nearly every type of electronic media.
Fortunately, Canada has backed away from a proposed law that would have allowed a similar monitoring of the use of the Internet by its citizens.
It's a shame the great citizens of the UK haven't made the outcry their Canadian cousins did. Otherwise they may have avoided one of the greatest breaches of trust in modern times. I know it is fashionable after 911 to argue anything is ok in the fight to battle terrorism, but now it seems the same argument is used in battling crime.
The ends do not always justify the means.
