There is no certainty, only opportunity

I did not wish to edit my previous post but I had a rather strong urge to share more of my standpoints. Especially since I remember them at the present time. If you know me, you also know that memory is the limiting factor of many things I wish to do.

It is simply that something has been bugging me for a long time. It is that ever since World War II, the U.S. has been showing itself as 'World Police'. Just recently they put their aim on Megaupload, a company based in Hong Kong with the management residing in New Zealand. Since the servers were located in the U.S., they could confiscate them. And then NZ police officers arrested the management... and gave them over to the U.S. authorities to be accused of using piracy in order to make money. This clearly illustrates the power of the United States of America over smaller independent countries.
Many people have heard about something called SOPA. This is a devilish American bill that, if it became a law, would allow the U.S. to interfere in practically any country's legal system in case of a mere doubt of guilt of piracy. It would mean that by U.S. laws they'd be allowed to arrest foreigners making copies of music, movies, ebooks etc for personal use, even though it is legal in some countries. Unfortunately not cooperating with U.S. authorities could have a negative influence to the other countries' international relations with not only the U.S., but also with its friends - other countries forced into submission. This poses a threat to the free world.
One can only hope that Ireland will come to everyone's rescue.
