    No more "Panem et circenses"
    "That is the secret of happiness and virtue-liking what you've got to do. All conditioning aims at that: making people like their inescapable social destiny."
    - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World, Ch. 1

    Spain congratulates itself on its victory against the enactment of a law, known as "Ley Sinde", that would have allowed to close any spanish webpage with no judge's authorization. People's will, true source of the state's power, have weighed more than demagogic arguments, the involvement of the USA government (uncovered by Wikileaks), and the pressure of the entertainment Lobbies that don't give up trying to perpetuate an obsolete business model.

    In fact, it's a deep victory. They had tried to rise a new generation of slaves, junkies that got high with the welfare state. They strove to destroy any good reason to fight, any good reason to suffer. And they believed that, in that way, by neutralizing our will and killing our desire before it could be born, the true and pacific domination of the people, could be reached. They are wrong. We will never be known as the grey generation again.
