so virgin got shut down on thursday night.

woopdeefuckingdoo……

apparently they were selling stuff that the bearded dudes didnt like, and yeah if they were breaking the rules as it were then fair enough.

what i dont get is how so many bloggers seem shocked.

half of them are ‘ ahhhh nooo how can they do this?!?!?!’

the other half : ‘ youre infringing our rights!!! its 1984 like ol georgie said!!!’

ummm,…

wake the fuck up!

you live in a police state.

kuwait has always been a police state.

if you’re kuwaiti then youre a subject of the royal family, not a citizen.

atleast the english, canadians and japanese can subject themselves to some sort of denial cos their monarchy have no powers over state.

as bloggers you should bloody well know that the country youre from/live in practices censorship. right now the censorship is mostly restricted to books and videos, but blogs will not be forgotten.

just cos you dont publish your picture or your name doesnt mean they cant find you.

ISP’s here will bend over backwards if someone from the ministry wants someones info, so if you or one of your family subscribed to the line then they will get you. if you post from work, they can track you down, if you post via wifi form an internet cafe it’ll take a bit longer, but they will be able to figure out who you are.

atleast in another country, the government would need a court order to get your info from the ISP.

even the newspapers here are not completely free so how anyone is shocked and outraged at virgins closure is shocking in itself.

grow up, you live in kuwait, a nation steeped in family ties, traditional values, powerful islamists in government and beardies who think theyre doing gods work by using a magic marker on cleavage instead of going after peadophiles and those inciting hatred. 

they say that people get the governments they deserve,…..

so who’s fault is it when they stop you from reading and learning what you want?

and who’s fault will it be when they come for you after your next government criticising post?

  1. I have already heard stories about blogs mysteriously being blocked for a few hours because the content of some the post soured the taste of someone’s mouth.

    How sad I swear.

    But honestly I was shocked, because I thought Virgin was owned by someone who is prominent, dunno who though, so if they’re closing it down for someone who can pull a lot of strings (I assume) … 😦 it means the ‘beardies’ are getting a lot more power than I thought they got. I underestimated them basically. My bad.

  2. saddly they are getting stronger. i think you’ll find out if you come back to live in kuwait.

    the silent majority dont seem to have read any history on the spanish inquisition or communist states or macarthyism or the chinese cultural revolution.

    and thus islamic societies will be condemned to repeat mans past mistakes.

  3. That’s pretty messed up…am gettin paranoid :s maybe i’ll close down my blog before I get busted!
