Sad moment for our fundamental rights. #TERREG was officially adopted by the European Parliament last night. It opens the floodgates for possible censorship all over Europe. Governments can abuse it in order to silence criticism. https://peertube.european-pirates.eu/videos/watch/f6c21f2c-78c9-4cb9-a74f-c41bd666fab4
This is kind of accelerationist, but I would laugh so hard if some right-wing euroskeptic party came to power and just abused the absolute crap out of that law. I mean at this point the EU parlement kind of deserves a little lesson in what happens when government meddles w/ speech.
@marcel_kolaja Oh, that’s bad. Bad, bad, bad. And he’s right. It’s gonna be much like gun laws. Regular people will be deemed offensive and punished but the terrorists are underground – terrorists won’t be affected at all.
