Yesterday I expressed my indecision1 about the Internet Filtering planned by the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) and ECPAT. They want to filter our Internet so as to block websites that depict the sexual abuse of children.
Attempts to filter the Internet in Australia have had enormous problems, and have also sparked an excellent YouTube video and website from GetUp,
an independent, grass-roots community advocacy organisation giving everyday Australians opportunities to get involved and hold politicians accountable on important issues.
The internet is an amazing place. But here at the Federal Government we think it’s a little too amazing.
That’s why we’ve developed Censordyne — a mandatory way to censor the internet.
Censordyne lets the Government decide what you can and can’t do online. From what you buy to how you communicate and even what you read.
Censordyne, developed in our secret Internet laboratory:
- Offers protection against fast Internet
- Is mandatory, for a cleaner feed
- Reduces your democratic protections
- Pretends to fight moral decay
All with a fresh multi-million dollar flavour.
