As of Sunday 31st January, Australia's last chance to remain a free nation depicted by the Parliament resuming on Tuesday February 2nd. Why must we
be put through this censorship that countries such as China and Iran already have? Free country? I thought wrong.
With an Internet censorship poll with statistics taken on the 22nd May 2009 from put in place 96 percent of user disagree with the censoring opposed
to the two percent who think it is a “good idea”.
Some say it may be for the better as it takes care of some controversial matters such as child pornography, racism and hate groups. Although it will
limit the knowledge accessible to the everyday being who would like to access information concerning safe sex, or breast cancer as there are key words
filtering out websites. This website let alone will be very limited to view. I find that as a responsible adult, that this issue needs to be taken
into such extremes as to limit possible helpful information to some viewers. Some people enjoy reading the dirt and with a country taking away a
social rights, it makes wonder...this isn’t just about the protection against bomb threats and protection of children; they are limiting our
accessibility to knowledge.
