Well, if the word Terrorism loses its momentum, the words Child Porn are gladly swapped out for it. All in the name for Freedom.

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
But we still have the War on Drugs™

I am surprised that so many are surprised at this kind of thing happening. We want to put the responsibility of so much of our lives into the hand of the state, this type of stuff is inevitable. Luckily, I think I'll kick the bucket before the mandatory brain filters come online.

Senator Conroy is a dickhead. Always has been and always will be.

I loved this bit:

Senator Conroy says anyone wanting uncensored access to the internet will have to opt out of the service.

Oh great. Yes, please put me on the "internet predator monitored by ASIO" list.

Well, in Finland they seem to confuse Child Porn with criticism.

Has anyone noticed how Child Porn and Terrorism are completely interchangeable these days?

Just like the terrorists were Communists before FOX decided the term Islamofascist sold better.

What a journey.
Can you explain the child porn = terrorism assertion?
I'm not sure I get the subtleties.

What a journey.

he's not saying they're the same thing, well, except to politicians who will use them interchangeably to support whatever cause they are pushing today.

Exactly Simon, child porn and terrorism are the two magic words that give politicians basically the right to introduce legislation that was completely unthinkable in the free world even 5 years ago.

Even the Dutch national police has a filter list that get's distributed to ISPs. And although there's currently only one ISP that subscribes to it, the scary thing is that DNS requests for one of those servers is leading you to a page hosted by the police. Conveniently logging your IP address since you apparently sought 'verboten' material.

It's just a matter of time until other ISPs are strongarmed into using the list as well, because they'll just be blamed of 'pushing child porn'.

Dutch article about the filter list.

Besides the obvious comments regarding this idiot, I just think he looks funny in this picture. That seems pretty non-political/safe. :)
