The government wants to censor the internet.

If this happens, then we live in a country where no politician values their life.
There will be blood.

so...

what is the most necessary thing this will bar access to?

limewire/torrents?

i'm not sure what exactly constitutes "unsafe material", so can someone explain the implications?

i can't search for myself because of the reason i posted above

It's not going to happen. Like one of the articles says, it's totalitarianism. The state shouldn't be in control, we are in a democracy.

Damn government! If this gets implemented, I will personally, without fear of death, demolish Parliament House via the use of my bare nose.

Actually, that might be hard..


I highly doubt it will go forth, and be accepted by the community, though.

here you go
A few days ago I came across the news that the Australian government was implementing plans for a no opt-out censored Internet. This will be a multi-million dollar project and will be “mandatory for all Australians”, which means that “Australians will be unable to opt-out of the government's pending Internet content filtering scheme, and will instead be placed on a watered-down blacklist.”

If Australians allow this scheme to be implemented, then it means that they will be living under Totalitarianism, a political system where a “state regulates nearly every aspect of public and private life.” This is the same type of regime that the Soviet Union functioned as, maintaining itself “in political power by means of an official all-embracing ideology and propaganda disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party that controls the state, personality cults, control over the economy, regulation and restriction of free discussion and criticism, the use of mass surveillance, and widespread use of terror tactics.”

I nearly started a thread on this today, with the sites SoulflyV mentioned. It's just stupid on so many levels.

DON'T MAKE ME DESTROY YOU!

doubt they'll do this.

but if they do...porn is going to be the only thing unaccessible, right?

i find porn shops more convenient for that so this blacklist won't affect me i think.

'child friendly' would have to mean more than just 'no porn'. it said that it could extend to things like euthanasia.

honestly, if this happens, there will be riots. for sure.

do you mean access to information about euthanasia...

...or ordering gas over the internet lololololol?
#29
it's rediculous, there are WAYYYYY more adults in aus than children, and to restrict a common service just to protect them is stupid, in fact, and i'm not just saying this to be a wank, but if they do, i bet teen violence rates will rise.

heres a flow chart:

No internet --> Go outside --> Beat up someone--> Jail.

if you are inside looking at porn on a firday night, then you're not out side beating someone up.

and thers porn on SBS anyway!

more or less.

its choosing to die because you think that death is less painful, usually.

a terminally ill patient may wish to be euthanised (i think that's a word) because they believe that a painless death is how they would prefer to go, instead of being drugged up and in pain for months, waiting for the inevitable.

I swear if that c**t Rudd has anything to do with this, I'll de-nut him! I will riot and I know I will not be alone as this would make us puppets of totalitarian rule, and no one in this country will be f***ed having to put up with that!
#37
I don't think this could ever happen, its just too difficult to implement and is against Democracy.

Then again if it does happen, i'm gonna riot.

With a tank.
