Be very much afraid. Why, you ask. Because you are likely a U.S. citizen. (That’s far from 100% but it is certainly the majority.)
America — as we simplistically refer to it — is the land of the free and the home of the brave. We have a Constitution that is called the greatest and it is bolstered by the Bill of Rights. People in the past ached, connived, and would do almost anything — including leaving family and friends and not knowing the language to arrive at Ellis Island.
What has changed? Things like this. A promising young man is terrified of coming to America with all its assumed guarantees of fairness.
Back in the stone age, I ran a BBS. I had a small but popular BBS called Toolkit BBS. It had download privileges based on a generous uploading ratio. It mostly revolved around programming and sharing code. One nice guy from one of the smaller Canadian provinces uploaded porn. I never was big on porn but left it based on my Libertarian leanings. Were any of the young ladies under 18? Odd are. But, I wasn’t even looking at the stuff. These days I wouldn’t be as cavalier. And if I was, I might make have a better chance of being on the county’s list of sexually convicted felons than the top of the Google listings. Would you feel safer if that occurred? Same question about the kid mentioned and loved by at least his mom.
