"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

The UN, The OIC & Media Censorship

What is it about the world's movers & shakers that everything they do seems counter-intuitive to common sense?

The latest news from the UN is that it believes the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has a “human right” to impose censorship on the media to “promote (Muslim) religious tolerance.”

Despite EU and US opposition the OIC successfully pushed through a resolution that creates a watchdog to monitor how religion is portrayed in the media. The OIC says it will promote religious tolerance by ensuring that religion is not defamed.

UPDATE: Here's a video lifted from Wayne's Earth which ties in nicely with the censorship angle and shows how it's already operating:

  2. Hi Banned, the OIC has been pushing for this resolution for about 2yrs now. Imagine the impact it will have on the media and the internet if it's adopted in full.

    Obama wants a 'kill switch' on the i/net too - all in the name of 'homeland security'. Sometimes it feels like we're being locked down.
