Beginning of the end? Cybercrime Law in the Philippines

 

I thought we lived in a democracy. Where the freedom to say what you want, good or bad, is respected and upheld by the constitution. Rash actions of a few people in power would put an end to all that, apparently.

A new era is being born. A gag to silence the voices of opposition is given power. Say goodbye to sarcasm, irony, and parody, all great things that the Internet is best at. Just because a poor old senator can’t take admit the truth. Just because his narrow-minded, egotistical self can’t admit that he was wrong.

To be fair, it took more than his signature to pass this awful Cybercrime Law. Maybe it’s time we commit those names to memory. Remember these people and make sure they never step foot in the upper house or in any political office ever again.
