The concept of government-backed web censorship is usually associated
with nations where human rights and freedom of speech are routinely
curtailed. But if Canberra's plans for a mandatory Internet filter go
ahead, Australia may soon become the first Western democracy to join the
ranks of Iran, China and a handful of other nations where access to the
Internet is restricted by the state.

It is a bad idea that should not be allowed to happen, but
hyperventilating and comparing it to repressive political filters does
not help the cause.

Talking about it on these ngs doesn't get to the people who need to
listen. Write to your local Federal MP and let them know what you think
of this proposal. Get to know your local members. Talk to them in their
offices, or if you see them when they're out and about. Remind them
about the repressive regimes (and deaths)that have eventuated after
governments have extended their controls over the population.

And ask your Federal member if they really want to be remembered for
passing legislation that helps to turn Australia into a police state.

Also, there's no guarantee that the Libs will can the internet filter if
they win government either.

If enough voters let their MPs know how they feel, then perhaps, just
perhaps, your representatives will change their minds.

And also make sure that they kill the proposal to log all your web
brousing and communications at the same time.

Unfortunately we don't have any guaranteed human rights, freedom of
speech, or pretty much any other rights in Australia.

Bring on the election.

Never thought I'd turn political.

Fat lot of difference that will make. The most that might happen is
that the greens get complete control of the senate with stuff where
the coalition opposes labor.

You're content to let yourself get pineappled because you can't be bothered
to stand up for your rights. People like you have gotten us to this point.
