License to Blog (!)

The Statists are not just in the White House.

The American blogosphere is going increasingly “viral” about a proposal advanced at the recent meeting of the Davos Economic Forum by Craig Mundie, chief research and strategy officer for Microsoft, that an equivalent of a “driver’s licence” should be introduced for access to the web. This totalitarian call has been backed by articles and blogs in Time magazine and the New York Times.

As bloggers have not been slow to point out, the system being proposed is very similar to one that the government of Red China reluctantly abandoned as too repressive.

Obviously Microsoft's boyzzzz like the market-model MS adopted (and which is also crumbling before their eyes.)

Good thing nobody bothers with NYT and Time.

Seriously, though...here is something the TEA Parties and the ACLU SHOULD agree on.
