On a day when we mourn the death of an inventor who dedicated his working, life, energy and genius to help the spread of information, Italian politicians are doing their best to pass a law which will censor it.
Italians are currently being faced with a blackout on news that doesn’t please the regime whilst thanks to Steve the rest of the world is enjoying the benefit of his genius. Wikipedia has been on strike here for the past three days in protest, news programmes are going on strike too, blogs will be monitored and heavy fines and prison sentences for those who try to divulge forbidden information.
Can you imagine a country which would put a journalist in prison for reporting that the Prime Minister is a pervert and do nothing about the Prime Minister himself? Reminds me of something I studied at school about Saxon Kings killing the messenger when he brought bad news.
What is going on?!?! Someone come and help us please. So sorry Steve that this whole country can do no better than this when you did so much. :-((
