Sony

Evidently, the United States government is far more afraid of foreign powers than it is of its own citizens. Why else would no action by taken by the President, Congress, FBI, CIA, etc. after the North Korea hacking of Sony’s proprietary databases and e-mail, and the ensuing threats from that country? This hacking has led to North Korea being so upset over a planned new-release film that they have made what are tantamount to terrorist threats. These threats have made so many major theater chains back away from the film that Sony might not even release the project now. Was it a film I planned to watch? No; I has zero interest in it. Still, our President, Congress, and other US governmental bodies are letting North Korea dictate the future of this project. And, by extension, Sony and the rest of the entertainment industry.

Why?

If the threats North Korea have made against theaters for wanting to show the film had, instead, been leveled at the White House, or any other governmental building we’d likely be at war with North Korea right now. Instead, Our government is allowing a foreign power to censure US arts and entertainment because that foreign power made some threats.

We all need to remember this during the next elections. Please support me in voting the people out of office who are allowing this to happen. We need people in government who will support freedom in the arts and entertainment industries, not allow them to be gutted. We, the people, need to control the government, not the other way around.
