I seriously doubt that "…while the approval by European Parliament once seemed enviable…’ was actually meant :smile:

In what sense is SOPA defeated? Dammit, they just keep filing off the serial numbers and bringing it back again. They know sooner or later most of us will be asleep and the members of Congress they own will earn their bribes.

Does anybody know parliamentary procedure? Isn’t there any way to defeat this infinity plus one so they stop trying?

You say that SOPA was undefeated because it inevitably gets re-introduced in other ways. However, the SOPA fight was very successful. Of course it’s being re-introduced in other ways. That’s what we expected. That’s why struggles for civil rights are called “struggles”. It’s a never-ending process against inevitable corruption, greed and bad actors. It’s not a nice, clean video game with a black and white ending. It’s an ongoing struggle that we fight for and that’s our human condition. It takes fortitude, but many of us will never give up… ever.

We fight despite a lack of encouragement from others, dismissiveness, divisive pedantry and a focus on pointless semantics (while often focusing on pipe dream platitudes ) and trite, anti-solidarity nitpicking.

There’s always going to be people who get tired, discouraged and lack the fortitude to continue the struggle, but then there’s… the others.

The only thing I can think of is to get more money out of politics like we’re trying to do here in the USA:

And this below met goals 18 days early and was 110% funded. We’re ready to take names. Kick ass.
