Australian Government Filters Internet in Order to Protect Society

Australian Government Filters Internet in Order to Protect Society

Stephen Conroy, Australian Broadband Minister, keeps repeating that online filtering is necessary to defend the Internet itself from infringers,and those people comparing filtering to the authoritarian regime are simply misleading the national public. He strongly believes that mandatory Internet filtering he proposes is in Australian’s best interests.

Stephen Conroy’s first suggestion on filtering was made in order to protect kids, and presumed the filtering to be on the user’s choice. As it usually happens, the original plan swiftly turned into the government’s attempt to make Internet Service Providers obligingly filter the Internet looking for inappropriate, illegal and insulting content. This way it quickly developed from an innocent attempt to defend children in some way from child pornography to the regime banning legal porno, P2P networks and even gambling.

Two month ago Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, affirmed the concern of the country in free Internet expression. She highlighted the responsibility of the private sector to facilitate and secure online freedom by not only focusing on the possibilities to profit, but considering what is right for the customers.

Jeff Bleich, the US ambassador to Australia, supported Hillary Clinton this week, when he emphasized that the USA managed to fight children porno without online filtering. The US had other methods which made it able to accomplish the same goals that Australia faces now, and the US is ready to share its efforts. All this means little to Conroy who seems not to care and keeps saying that there are too many users publishing anything they like in the Internet, regardless of whether it contradicts offline legislation.

It’s hard to understand why he refuses to realize that nobody is trying to protect clearly violating content like child porno. Critics are only concerned that the government will institute a filter which could probably be ratcheted up just on a political whim.

The problem is that the proposed regulation exists today, but doesn’t apply to other countries where the content is hosted. That’s exactly what Conroy want to solve with filtering. There urgently needs a person able to explain him about the tons of easy workarounds like proxies and VPNs, and especially about the fact that true criminals will hardly be affected. It leaves us to hope that Ambassador Bleich will be the one who can prevent him from “breaking” the Internet for everyone.

CommanderKeen avatarConroy says - "there are too many users publishing anything they like in the Internet"
So again we see someone introducing a law for his own personal reasons! For this man it's not about protecting the people, but about preventing internet content that does not meet his own "high" standards. This is proven by him ignoring the facts, and any reasonable advice from Jeff Bleich, who clearly has a better knowledge of the internet, and more reasonable solutions! Can you imagine a world where every individual was able to adjust anything, just to suit themselves, and their narrow minded view of the world.

phoenixcrash avatarAntipodean, don't wait for the next flight... Get the F*CK outta there NOW! "may the fleas from a thousand camels infest your genitals" - Boatee. That may not be enough for that sorry bastard. I'd rather have him infested by some good 'ol fashion, American, "can only get'em from that whore down at the truck-stop" CRABS! I'll be sure to send him a "care-package" immediately.

megaplay avatarHitler promised to protect and defend his people. By enacting laws for the safety and security of the German people, he was actually taking their freedom and their ability to rise up and defy his will.

megaplay avatarActually...I should rephrase my first post...The same ideology helped propel Hitler to power.
