Net Neutrality, Australian Style.

Say goodnight to Australia, Gracie.

Australia: Internet censorship plan gets the green light.

The Federal Government has announced it will proceed with controversial plans to censor the internet after Government-commissioned trials found filtering a blacklist of banned sites was accurate and would not slow down the internet.

But critics, including the online users’ lobby group Electronic Frontiers Australia and the Greens communications spokesman Scott Ludlam, said the trial results were not surprising and the policy was still fundamentally flawed.

The Communications Minister, Stephen Conroy, said today he would introduce legislation just before next year’s elections to force ISPs to block a blacklist of “refused classification” (RC) websites for all Australian internet users.

An earlier version of the Government’s top-secret list of banned sites was leaked on to the web in March, revealing the scope of the filtering could extend significantly beyond child porn.     www.smh.com.au/articles/2009/03/19/1237054961100.html

Yep, it’s all about protecting the children…………….. from any website dedicated to freedom and individual rights, including halting anyone’s viewing of sites concerning the right to self-defense with or without any weapons…………….. and it’s all about stopping the porn people…………… But the US-based pre-teen fi$t!#@ sites are simply glorious for all to behold via the new free Jen-Serv web host.

Australians can’t have access to any of those evil Christian sites available at all (Yeah, sounds a bit odd there, I know)…………….  Those pesky websites popping up all over that are in Farsi along with that funny-looking black and white flag on ’em ?  No problem whatsoever.

Mustn’t allow anyone to see even YouTube videos, or Wikipedia pages……………… However, if you want to know how to “fundamentally transform the United States”, well hey, c’mon in, the bloodless coup instructions await on many many sites.

Electronic Frontiers Australia is trying (in vain) to fight it all…………. “There are few surprises in this document,” said EFA spokesperson Colin Jacobs. “Given the pilot’s modest goals, it was designed from the beginning to pass. Although it may address some technical issues, what it leaves out is far more important – exactly what will be blocked, who will decide, and why is it being attempted in the first place?” www.efa.org.au

Mr. Jacobs, I can help out a bit here and honestly it’s quite simple:  You’re being lied to in monumental proportions.  “To protect the children” when passed will instantly morph into some of the most nefarious censorship and government control of Australian’s lives than anything Jack-Boot Johny ever did, including seizing all your civilian-owned firearms.

This isn’t going away…….. not by a long shot.

And yeah, it CAN happen here in The USA………. easily………… overnight………. seriously.
