I wonder what the effects would be on commerce. since everything is (sadly) being done "in the cloud" now, how bad does this kill businesses?


Churchofthepoisonmind.....

That's a very good point!


Perhaps that means Obama is just being plain silly when he talks about this.

Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not

How much do you think they can simply make things "a lot more difficult"?

I am so shocked to see so many anti-obama members here on ATS. This bill might look awful at first but that's because you are plagued with right winged propaganda. This bill can help ALL OF US in a time of Emergency. Then again half of the members on here don't think 9/11 was done by terrorist.

Wake up to the truth! 9/11 and so many other conspiracies have been debunked.


Well, after reading all your posts on other threads, I can safely say that you are some dis-info agent. Hit the road jack, and doncha come back. If you think this is a good thing, then you are delusional.

Too many people.

To try and shut down the internet, you simply cannot win,
even if you dont know what you are doing, we will give you the programs to help, and tell you how to use them.


good luck trying to own the internet, we will take it back.

Who is "they"?

And what do you mean by "more difficult"?

The Internet is simply transfer of data through the air or through wires. Once you know how to do it, you cant just "shut it off".

Government legislators & law enforcement agencies

I'm think they could perhaps move to shutdown major ISP's, major websites, etc...

I guess whilst some people might be motivated & clever enough to implement "work arounds", many will not.

So, I'm thinking 'they" could do a lot of damage.

Or.....am I demonstrating a lack of knowledge in this area.....


Kind regards

Well, I checked his history of posts, and they all echo the same sentiment about ATS being "anti-Obama." He also bashes all conspiracy theories right off the bat. Not someone that belongs on a conspiracy forum, and with his very recent join date, well, you put the math together.


Peace be with you.

Hey there ::: Maybe...maybe not !

So what is the actual physical process involved in shutting down the internet .Surely the concept of a "kill switch" is an over- simplification.


-------------------------------------------------------

I thought the U.S was to have a less prominent role relating to the control of the internet ......... how naive of me .


US relinquishes control of the internet

Article Date::Wednesday 30 September 2009
guardian.co.uk


After complaints about American dominance of the internet and growing disquiet in some parts of the world, Washington has said it will relinquish some control over the way the network is run and allow foreign governments more of a say in the future of the system.

Icann – the official body that ultimately controls the development of the internet thanks to its oversight of web addresses such as .com, .net and .org – said today that it was ending its agreement with the US government.
