I like how the persons that are supposed to represent us are still pushing treaties and legislations that are not in the line of the public opinion.
Spark some knowledge about this shit in public already goddamn.
I'm going to try and find more information on this, the article cites no sources.
Edit: Found some countries named as supporters. China, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Russia, India, Brazil. Makes it sound similar to a 2003 movement for similar regulation. It doesn't seem yet that the UK is among them, which brings me some relief.
When will they just fuck off with the whole "internet censorship" thing?
Fucking Christ, they've lost countless times. Why even bother trying?
its like fishing
Truly good government is not afraid of information freedom, because it just cannot hurt them in any way.
If the government wants to have full control over information, that government should be replaced.
you sitting there, hoping to get a catch
once you do, its get lose
and you keep trying to you get it
How about a goddamn "FUCK NO"?
America: FUCK YEAH!
One does not simply control the internet
But really, When are people going to give up on this. It's never going to happen, It's like trying to kill TPB
we must move all the current web to ocean based servers now. nobody can own the ocean!
It makes me laugh that people actually think they can control the internet.
These fucks are really pushing for this now, starts with ACTA, SOPA AND PIPA in the US, similar try here in Ireland but they've back down, wanting to block thepiratebay in the UK (that's only the start). FUCK OFF.
= another win for the freedom of the internet
"the internet is for everyone and no one man can own it"
"I know, I've tried
Hey, look on the bright side guys; if they manage getting this treaty through, we'll probably attempt to take control over them through riots and protesting.
so how big is the chance it pass you guys belive?
every five goddamn minutes
Christ, why is it that everyone wants control of the internet? At that point, it's not the internet, it's just a database of propaganda, so to speak. I predict that they'll change things so that you can't look at things that suggest your country is not better than theirs. I agree with krassell, nobody's holding me back from free information.
You see, In order to prohibit users from freely accessing the internet, you have to personally monitor every single computer on the planet. You would have to personally put a guard (because frankly, every other system can be bypassed) near every computer to check if it's not accessing blocked sites. That is impossible. In other words, in order to COMPLETELY block off sites, you either need to have no internet, or to heavily regulate EVERYTHING.
They should make their own Internet then.
All the talk about Tor being able to defeat this and so forth will not work, there will be a exit node somewhere in where the computer will have to connect to the site, so if it lies within the same nation that accepts this censor, it will still be blocked, and Tor will be useless.
They wanted stability and integrity back, and although called "the people's nations", they got it back. And in the core beliefs and social rites there's still some sinocentric belief left that makes them seek some isolation or at the very least independence from the west.
The newer generations that don't follow the traditions are more inclined to reach out to the west that supplies them with the latest tech (kinda like in Japan technophiles are clashing with traditions), but some stuff is simply passed on from parents to child. Mindsets aren't just replaced over the course of a couple of generations. Americans still very much love the tools with which they won their independence they're so proud of.
TL;DR Europe had the French revolution and its aftershocks, America its independence war from the British Empire, China's harbors were dateraped by "the West" until everyone drowned in Opium and wished for a return of the strong guiding hand.
I smell anonymous cooking up more ddos attacks, now aiming at the UN
