Welcome to the U.S.S.A.

There are plenty of stories from behind the Iron Curtain about how private individuals were not allowed to have a typewriter or a copying machine, how cameras were limited in use and people who took pictures near "state assets" could be arrested and thrown in the Gulag for Article 58 violations (read Solzhenitsyn's Archipelago). The argument was that an individual who had pictures of a Dam on the Volga River might send/sell them to enemies of the state that might use them for military information.

Sounds funny right?

Think again.
