From the article:
“Parliament, outraged by the blatant destruction of British property, enacted the Coercive Acts, called the "Intolerable Acts" by the colonists, in 1774. The Coercive Acts closed Boston to merchant shipping, established formal British military rule in Massachusetts, made British officials immune to criminal prosecution in America, and required colonists to quarter British troops. The colonists subsequently called the first Continental Congress to consider a united American resistance to the British.” [emphasis mine –dmiwench]
Let’s replace a few key words and see how this would look in today’s terms, shall we? This is my modern reinterpretation of the above text:
“[America’s corporate rulers], outraged by the blatant [occupation] of [public] property, enacted the NDAA, SOPA and PIPA, called "[bullsh*t]" by [American citizens], in . [This bullsh*t] closed [America] to merchant shipping, established formal … military rule in [America], made [military] officials immune to criminal prosecution in America, and required [American citizens] to quarter [government] troops. The [American citizens] subsequently called the first [Occupy GA] to consider a united American resistance to the [bullsh*t].
How does that sound to you?
