Encroaching totalitaranism in France

The French. I like their food, the fries and cheese in particular. But would I want to live in a country that views free speech so differently than we do? No way.

I have to admit, I was a little shocked when I read the first few lines of this article. Here's the gist of it: the french government is intent on criminalizing the reporting of acts of violence by individuals other than professional journalists.

Wow. I guess it really isn't more than a skip and a hop from socialism to totalitarianism. Here's a scary excerpt from the article linked below----

"The government has also proposed a certification system for Web sites, blog hosters, mobile-phone operators and Internet service providers, identifying them as government-approved sources of information if they adhere to certain rules."

I guess, in the future, it may suck to be a blogger in france. Now that I think about it, I don't even like their cheese.
