Don't try and be my Daddy!
My Daddy has done a good job on his own and his main values are equality, fairness, truth, justice and transparency. He doesn't believe in censorship, and I turned out okay!

THE Federal Government is planning to make internet censorship compulsory for all Australians and could ban controversial websites on euthanasia or anorexia.

Australia's level of net censorship will put it in the same league as countries including China, Cuba, Iran and North Korea, and the Government will not let users opt out of the proposed national internet filter when it is introduced.


EFA board member Colin Jacobs said it would have little effect on illegal internet content, including child pornography, as it would not cover peer-to-peer file-sharing networks.

"If the Government would actually come out and say we're only targeting child pornography it would be a different debate," he said.

What's so wrong with freedom of speech, expression and experience? Aren't I grown up enough to decide whether I can look at sites about euthanasia, anorexia or porn? Isn't it my luxury, living in a "free" country to decide and then parent what happens in *my* house and what children in *my* care can and can't access? When do *I* get to grow up and make my *own* decisions?

Get your paws OFF MY KEYBOARD!

Via flinthart - tell Minister Stephen Conroy what you think. I know I am sending him an email after I write this post:
