It's bit amazing how far backwards we as a planet have gone in the past 8 years. Just when you thought free thought, open ideas, peace and understanding were on the move, Bam, Russia contemplates heavy restrictions on its Internet.
Now the Russian government is looking into ways to restrict internet users by banning what it deems as extremism, which could be just about anything. Any website that falls outside of what is deemed exceptable will be blocked from users. This is yet another step in Russia slow march back to "un-free".
Soon Russian citizen will probably lose the right to Habius Corpus. Oh wait....we lost that right last year.
