So, instead of helping schools to give more students better education (because, of course, we don't WANT thinking Americans, those types might see how much their government screws them over on a daily basis), we're going to threaten to withhold federal funding and even threaten to sue schools over individual students using file-sharing networks. Not over actually violating copyright laws, because we're not going to check and make sure that's what they were doing, simply using something that COULD have that result.
Ignore the fact that we're only talking about one section of the student body. Ignore the fact that only one section of that section is actually doing this. Ignore the fact that anything a university finally manages to get around to approving, choosing, and installing will then be defeated and obsolete.
No, let's do this. Then, let's start suing the car manufacturers, since cars are involved in homicides and other crimes, every day. For that matter, let's sue the Department of Transportation, since most of those law-breakers use the roads for their get-aways. In fact, let's make sure that money is held back from and suits are pushed and slammed against the greatest breaker of American laws: the government, who daily lies, steals, cheats, and assaults, both domestically and abroad.
This? This is your leaders' ways of keeping you down and stupid. Fight back. How? Start by not being a foolish sheep.
