This really has to stop soon

Once again we see in the news how a student is being persecuted for expressing himself on the web. In this case, a student posted thoughts about how he was being bullied by the school into removing posts from his blog that he wrote on his own time at home.

I suppose we’re just going to have things like this happening for a few years until everyone comes to grip with technology and how it affects our world. No wait, that’s bullshit and I know it. The environment that our government has fostered, one where nobody has any civil liberties and our rights are regularly trampled upon “for our own good” is now trickling down to non-governmental authority figures. The school district is even using Bush rhetoric and fear mongering tactics.. sexual predators.. come on now, do I really have to spend the time outlining why that is a lame argument?
