The Left Wants to Takeover The Internet

Have you seen this news article?

Will bill give Obama control of Internet?

The internet is the source of information that is used world wide. Taking control of the internet means you take control of information. We have seen the broad change in language and definition over the last couple of decades. Recently we have been told not to use "War On Terror" or "Enemy Combatants". Controlling the language has always been a strong tool of the left but that would be nothing compared to controlling internet access.

The recent news about cyber attacks will help propel this bill and it will take a real effort to stop it. Once again you will have to write and call your representatives. I know this is getting old but until we the people get back control of our government we will need to pound them with letters and calls.

Will your opinion on your website be considered an attack? Look words matter and often change the face of a situation. Look over a legal contract and tell me that words and language aren't important. Fifty years ago you could write an agreement on a piece of paper. Now it takes a ream of paper and a boat of lawyers to accomplish a small act of business.

Your words on your website could be deemed an attack on our nation as our leaders see it. They may not be able to arrest you but they sure can keep you from posting opinions against them through a bill such as this. Just as China has filtered the internet the US government is looking to do the same thing in the name of security.

Of course they want to control it. It's a medium of free exchange that they can't easily censor. When attacking an adversary, you always try and knock out their "C3"....Command, Control, and COMMUNICATIONS first before they have a chance to defend themselves. Knock out the Net, or have the ability to shut it down at a whim, and POOF! There goes the communications for a large group of people.
I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they start looking at some of the many ways to throttle cellphone traffic, especially text-messaging.
Wouldn't want those nasty conservatives or threepers to swarm-mob, now would we?

I have linked to your post with your quotation from Thought Police which is a collection of articles related to censorship of information.

Good blog. It's not a question of if but when for sure. Check out my blog about the stimulus going to pay for broadband access. It fits very well with this blog.
