For years, the FBI has been hooked into
l the library system keeping records.
Mhmm. Assessing Fines. l No, monitoring reading habits.
Look, certain books . Books on, say, nuclear weapons, and Mein
Kampf. Anyone who checks out a flagged book has his library records fed into
the FBI records from then on.
wait, how is this legal?
Legal, ilegal these terms dont apply.

I've always wondered that about near any government in the world. Who is to say what they do is illegal or not? And who's to stop them? If the NSA, FBI or whatever want to view what you're doing, you can be damn sure they're going to do it. They could shut down and erase anybody or any company that tries to stop them without even trying. If the government wants you gone, you can be damn sure you'll be gone.
#67 to #33 - Jowi (06/27/2013) [-]
The Government wouldn't dare take on most companies as that's where they get their financing. And just because they can and do something doesn't make it legal. They're still disregarding their own laws.
User avatar #47 to #33 - eiaisqzbsesb (06/27/2013) [-]
Not here in sweden. The government is tied down with steel chains here. They do too bad, and we can kick them out. Well, we'd need to reach a majority vote on that but still.
User avatar #53 to #47 - luthervonappledorf (06/27/2013) [-]
That sounds like a fantastic idea. I suppose my only reservation is that the majority of people don't know what's good for them or their country. Governments have such a massive task and few people seem to realise how difficult it actually is to run a country. Sometimes I think we need to have longer terms for political parties so their policies can actually take effect.
User avatar #54 to #53 - eiaisqzbsesb (06/27/2013) [-]
Read up on the swedish political system. Sure, it's flawed, just like every other political system, but it's one of the best systems you'll find out there.
User avatar #55 to #54 - luthervonappledorf (06/27/2013) [-]
So the Riksdag chooses The Prime Minister rather than having a nationwide election? That's actually a great way to do it. This is really quite interesting, thanks for turning me to this.
User avatar #100 to #55 - admiralen ONLINE (06/27/2013) [-]
you know, the real problem with the political system is that the politicians have to fish for votes, so they cant do whats actually good for the people cause it sounds bad, göran persson pretty much saved swedens economy by taking away a lot of priveleges and such and most people hate him, even though if he hadnt we would be worse then greece now
User avatar #122 to #100 - luthervonappledorf (06/27/2013) [-]
Completely understand that. It seems to be going that way here in England. Politicians cosy up to voters and it all ends up with parties being nearly identical because they just pander to the public. The public doesn't know what it wants or needs. Hell, I don't have a clue what this country needs. That's why I won't vote. It seems to pointless because it's all a popularity contest with the dumbest person winning every time. I want an actual choice of DIFFERENT parties rather than shades of the same.
User avatar #125 to #122 - admiralen ONLINE (06/27/2013) [-]
know that feel, people want **** but they dont know that everything has a price, and politicians have to sugarcoat it and act like its just for free cause otherwise they wont get to do anything at all
User avatar #127 to #125 - luthervonappledorf (06/27/2013) [-]
Exactly! Like with this economic crisis. So many people here seem to think that you can 'spend your way out of recession' and that 'cutting funding won't help anything'. But, you can't spend money you don't have. Continuing in the same vein that got us all into this mess won't help it at all. It's a ridiculous notion.

Well, the people are supposed to be the regulators of government. The government is supposed to fear the people but when you have 80% of Americans more worried about what dick Kim Kardashian has in her pussy than what policies are being made about their privacy you get a **** stained country full of fat ignorant ***** i.e. The United States.

Why the hell would Mein Kampf be a flagged book? I would gladly read it if I had the chance just because of who wrote it. Many history buffs probably would too.
#63 to #16 - wheredahoodat (06/27/2013) [-]
It's still banned in Germany; afair the only way to get a copy is being a historian or history teacher.
#114 to #63 - Rascal (06/27/2013) [-]
Just use the internet and download an ebook. It's translated in nearly every language(even polish). People should stop treating it like some kind of hole to another dimension and just read it. It's not like you are going to get brainwashed or anything. You just need to stay true to your beliefs.
Mein Kampf isn't only about nazi ideology. It's about Hitler life, about german countries after the great war, about his parents, about his work, about people. When you start reading it you can almost forget who wrote it and sympathize with "the hero" when he is talking about his hardships in life.

Overall: It's a very interesting read. In my opinion everyone should read it to see that Hitler wasn't some kind of monster from hell. Today people demonize him too much and it leads people to thinking that will never happen again.
#141 to #114 - angelusprimus ONLINE (06/28/2013) [-]
He was a monster.
Just a human monster.
More human then Stalin, that's for sure.

My brother has used wikipedia as one of his main resources while he was doing medicine. And he is in the top 7% in the country in his medical results.

Wikipedia is great as long as you look up real topics. Looking up how something common like how breathing works would be fine because millions of people would have looked it up and millions of people would be changing it slightly each time until it is all correct and some of these people will be like professors in that field and such

Its just when people try and look up really obscure things on wikipedia like who was the first man to say the word "Yikes" then complain that it might not be right, even though only one person has ever contributed to that page and you are one of the 3 people to ever try and search for it.
User avatar #87 to #51 - rieskimo (06/27/2013) [-]
Although I agree with your point that wikipedia isn't the most reliable of sources(I gave you a green thumb), for your average guy just checking out some stuff casually it's not that bad of a source.

I just wouldn't use it as an educational source, or a legal source.

It's flagged because it's full of hateful ideology. Therefore, there MAY be people that will be inspired or persuaded to do something violent if they read it.

Funny thing, Mein Kampf talks about ridding Germany of the 'Reserve Bank' mafia who bully governments into accepting 'debt based' currency owned by them. Ie, the same group who sponsor the NSA, bribe governments, cause war, and use endless propaganda to distort historical fact. Anyone who does read Mein Kampf will end up realizing that all the lies 'told' by the Bank mafia are untrue, and that none of the things 'holocaust included' was ever real. This is why they HAVE to keep track of individuals who do read it. It's too 'truthful'. It could hurt the Reserve Banks' bottom line too much. Imagine if everyone found out that their country was being sucked out by the Rothschilds and the Jewish Banks? Think they'd revolt? Again? This is why they have to track readers. The more people that know the factual truth, the more danger the Reserve Banks face in being exposed as the orchestrators of all wars and countless acts of terrorism.

Warning, Mein Kampf is a ******* BORE. It's no wonder that no one in Nazi Germany ever read the damn thing. You should also read The Rise and the Fall of the Third Reich, it's worth it. I personally haven't found myself in the Soviet realm as I am still on the Holocaust at the moment and the Japanese Empire. If you are going to read anything about Leninist or Stalinist please make sure you read the Communist Manifesto first so you will know the difference. Outside of that, good luck.
