Ninjas be redeemin' the'selves on Net Neutrality

As ye know, I've had m' differences with Ninjas. What can I be sayin? Ninjas be loyal hired assassins, and the idea of working for a Shogun agency grates against me grain. I'm a freelance plunderer. Arrr.

But look'ye, I got t'hand it to the Ninja who made this 'ere video on Net Neutrality.

Watch, ye scurvy dogs, and learn:

That ninja be a funny knave.


Not all ninjas would have worked for the Shogun. (Yes, I know, in reality, it's very unclear whether there ever were any ninjas whatsoever). Assassinations were most common during the Sengoku period (1467-1600), when there was really no effective Shogun at all. Even during the Tokugawa Shogunate, ninjas would probably have been more likely employed by the great non-Tokugawa "outer" daimyo of the provinces, rather than by the Shogun's bureacracy (which had no problems publically and "legally" eliminating you if it felt that necessary). In any case, the loyalty of a bushi (samurai warrior) to his lord was vastly higher than that of a ninja to his temporary employer.

Conversely, many pirates were licensed by various governments and were not at all independent operators.

Who says bipartisanship is dead?

Shiver me shurikens!

ninjas, bedad! they aren't sloppin' bilgewater this time, but any mouth that be for praisin' sake' is not, ta me thinkin', busy about the grog spout. nelson's blood is the drink o' the sea and something no pirate can be forgettin' of.
