Scary. I hope it's just a fad, and these people will grow out of it eventually. Btw, if it is the largest gathering of neonazis in the world, it's possible there's folks there from around the world, thus making it slightly less worse for the Balkans...

Youtube will be force to make more or less all music videos unavailable from Germany, since GEMA is demaning 0,12 € per streamed video :(

WTF? oO
This kind of fucking bullshit just leads to people abandoning a site. Well done, copyright Nazis. You shovel your own grave, and I hope you'll realise that before you give up the ghost.

This isn't a music video though, but footage of a neo-Nazi gathering somewhere in the Balkans.

I honestly doubt whether copyright issues are the issue at hand here...
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.

Solution:Abandon all censorship, teach all children basic classical logic and some degree of critical philosophy in school. -> Democracy improves.

Solution 2: Abandon copyright, recognize the massive advantages of easy technological reproduction of content, teach children to read and understand text and engage with contents in a less superficial way. -> Culture improves.

Wonder if it would really work that way, though... :?

One may hope :)
But I'm really convinced that we should teach basic propositional logic at school. If you can do 2²=4, you can also do T AND T is T. And it would do us some good, I think. My ad hoc suggestion would 6th or 7th year of school.

Hehe, I've been thinking the same thing, and for mostly the same reasons. It would probably be better to not focus too much on the symbolic aspects of logic, and focus more on practical matters such as recognizing widespread fallacies in arguments, instead.

From some of the comments here, I think some of you who can't see the video think it's a movie or music clip. It isn't, it's a short, very short clip of a huge stadium full of neo-nazis salutin en masse. If it's a censorhip problem, it's more likely a censorship problem related to Germany's stance against anything nazi-related. There's no music at all in the clip.

Well, let me say "youtube is not available in my country" and see what happens then...

Yeah, I allready figured that out while reading the previous post.

But I was a bit enraged by the fact that there won't be any music clips on youtube soon.

Most propaly it is censored due to the fact that nazi#s aren't tolerated here i germany, as Skyclad suggested.
