Additionally I was reading up recently on United States Information and Communications Act and the Cyber Security ACT. looks like Americans are being
chipped away at here for their internet ownership and freedom.
They are using a two pronged approach to attack your civil liberties and take away the net from private owners and control your content for users:
1. The guise of cybersecurity to take over your internet
2. The guise of privacy listed in the OP
America has already been sold the idea of 'net neutrality' under the guise of taking away regulation from internet netwrok providers, but really it
would just hand control to the US government.
You are being moved to have government regulation and oversite on the internet over a self regulated free market industry, this is not good news Im
afraid. And unfortuntly for you guys, the man behind the bill to take control of the internet at any time by the government, none other than a
“the bill has been redrafted behind closed doors” and goes on to say “Like the original bill, the new version appears to give the President
carte blanche to decide which networks and systems, private or public, count as “critical infrastructure information systems or networks.”
The Cybersecurity Act of 2009, a bill by Senators Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) and Olympia Snowe (R-ME), that sought to give the federal government
unprecedented power over the Internet. For months, the bill has been redrafted behind closed doors and has recently been circulated, but by all
accounts, the changes are cosmetic and it's sadly more of the same.
And alongside that authority, there still appears to be murky language that would permit the President to shut down the Internet.
We all know Rockfeller said in public that internet freedom was the worst thing ever....Im not usually a TPTB panicker, but these two proposed bills
really do negate civil liberties, I dont care what they are sold as, though they are selling this as their "civic duty" , see blow:
A bill to ensure the continued free flow of commerce within the United States and with its global trading partners through secure cyber
communications, to provide for the continued development and exploitation of the Internet and intranet communications for such purposes, to provide
for the development of a cadre of information technology specialists to improve and maintain effective cybersecurity defenses against disruption, and
for other purposes.
They are both ways of getting rid of completely or controlling privatly owned businesses on the Net.
The internet is not owned by the US nor its congress. Keep it that way people.
