The Media of North Korea (interesting Pure Orwellian )

Internet use in North Korea is restricted to internet cafes or hotels designated for foreign tourists in Pyongyang, connected via a satellite link. A few of the government elite with state approval are connected to the internet via a link to China.[47] The general population of North Korea do not have internet access. North Korea itself has a very minimal presence on the internet, with none of its newspapers having their own sites, while KCNA's website is hosted in Japan. Exiled North Korean journalists contribute to online sites and the blogosphere.[1]

You've gotta be nuts about the Kill-Switch. Why can't everyone just get along? Let TPTB do whatever it is they want. We can all just go along for the ride and believe whatever they say. It'll be like those dark secrets in families, we'll know the truth but will stay quiet just to keep the peace. We'll all know what's really happening but we can just let all these other people go ahead and believe. It's like religion, people need something to blame and hold on to in order to survive.

Alot of people get harmed using the internet. It cause severe psychological damages on some individuals. Gets people to believe in total lies. It can also be used for many forms of cyber terrorism.

Not only do we need a switch but I think we also need some sort of a form of internet "police" or security to protect us from such terrorist.

You need the government to protect you on the internet?

How does the government protect you on the internet? By turning your internet off?
I think 99% of us could do that on our own

I bet you'll be the first in line to download government sponsered Antiviruses with billions of spyware installed on it, recording your every word and seeing every website you visit, because you believe that the government wants to protect you....

You might get off on the idea of someone controlling you;
But 95% of the people on this planet are self-empowered and desire freedom from anyone trying to control them.....

If the government really wanted to help us, instead of trying to install an internet kill switch, they would just give out warnings on the news about new viruses or whatever;

This is what the government thinks about their internet kill switch;
"OH NO!!! China just attacked Twitter by flooding it with spam!!!! We're all gonna die!!!! We have to shut down the entire internet!!!"

When I was interested in joining the Army years ago, I learned that the military is a billion years behind civilians in the area of "Information Technology"
They aren't competent enough to be telling us how to use the internet, which we built, on our own!!!
Sites like Youtube, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, are all multi-million dollar companies because of user submitted content; we are actually the ones who built those sites by adding content

The government needs to be focusing on clean energy or creating manufacturing jobs instead of trying to tear down the things that we have built and created......

The government cant even protect the mexican/us border;

They cant fix the economy/international trade policies

They cant even protect 1/4 of the united state's coastal waters from 1 single corporation like BP

And now they want to police the world wide web?

They are out of their minds!!!!!

This is an outrage;

The government is starting to overstep their bounderies

And should be kicked out of office ASAP

from the fabulous wiki

Kill Switch for the Net

In computer software The concept of "kill switch" may also be applied to software as an anti-piracy feature, most notably in Windows Vista. It renders the software essentially useless to users running what is determined by the software author to be an illegitimately obtained, or pirated, copy. In the example of Microsoft Windows, the company developed a verification tool named Windows Genuine Advantage, that originally activated a kill switch, or reduced functionality mode, on what Microsoft's mandatory software's deemed to be an unlicensed copy of the operating system. Software kill switches have been shown to have varying degrees of success, as false positives have been known to occur[1], prompting some vendors like Microsoft to "turn off" the software kill switch in response to market pressure. There is some anecdotal evidence that some software vendors install kill switches in their software to enforce [2] planned obsolescence, also known as a forced upgrade. This can cause considerable disruption[3] in said customer's business functions.

for those that did not bother to see the Meaning !

Seems like most of the posters are of the opinion that a kill switch and the monitoring of internet traffic in the name of anti-terrorism will actually be used to control legitimate dissent.
Give a politician a powerful tool of control over the electorate and watch your democratic rights disappear.
Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
There is no reason whatsoever to control the internet other than the desire to control information.
They are scared, not of terrorists, but of an informed public.

Apparently none of you are familiar with cyber warfare and cyber terrorism. You just think the internet is all fun and games. I just finished reading this book

I suggest you read it if you are really concerned with this issue.

By the way internet=free speech is not a true statement.

Lets say Obama was given the authority to kill the internet when ever, is there any other way to connect if that happens?

yes for sure, talking to people, books, magazines, newspapers, telephones, There was life before the internet.

Again this will not shut it down forever, just in a time of national emergencY!!

"Give Obama The Switch Don't Be A B%tch!"

Do you really think this is strictly about "natl. emergencies"? Are you that much of a fool? I truly hope not!

This pin head in charge is doing this because the net is showing people how much of an incompetent ass he is. He figures "get rid of the bad press, I can stay longer". People are stronger with information.

The feds dont care for that.

You Obama zombies are as bad as the Bushbots yall screamed about.

Depending on your reply, I will know if your just a troll or truly deluded.

Did you see the link of the book I just read on cyber ware-fare. It's a serious issue. Why do you think everyone is lying and bad natured. I am not just posting this because I feel like I am right, I have read a great book on this topic and done research. I am not an Obamamanic or w/e you want to call it.

The kill-switch could seriously help us in a national emergency, we are constantly being attacked cyber style.

I really recommend that you read the book. Even if it will not change your opinion on the switch it is a great read.

This dude is spreading MAJOR disinformation. Just follow his posts, he attempts to discredit almost everything he posts about....with no evidence. He's no better than the people who make up conspiracies without any shred of evidence

Don't call me he.

You attempt to discredit me with no evidence. Most of my post are opinion based. That why I asked on the OP if I am the only person on this website that feels that way.

You seem to think like a paranoid person from the looks of your post.

The kill switch can/will save us in an event of a real national emergency.

But it seems like users like you continue to OBEY IGNORANCE & DEFY FAMILIARITY!

How do you propose that an internet killswitch will 'save us'? However would shutting down the internet (i.e. cutting off Citizens from information) 'save us'? Save us how? Save us from what?? It seems like that is no different than taking down alarms in tornado-prone communities to warn that a dangerous storm is approaching.

How do you propose cutting the general population off from vital information in a time of emergency will save us?

What logic are you using to assume that the same government that can't do a damned thing about oil spills, hurricanes, wars in third world countries, or the borders, will some how manage the next crisis efficiently? And now we're proposing that we put blinders on the people in order to mitigate some localized attack? Real or otherwise? Who gets to decide when the emergency is over?

We've been operating under emergency powers since 9/11. Nearly 10 years of being spied on, having our speech rights trampled, being jailed indefinitely, and taking over industry.. This is how tyranny works, and you wanna give up the one tool we have, next to our guns, to keep the government at bay?

Hell no. The internet, like gun rights, are fundamental to our modern society. There has been no friend greater to the liberty of humanity than the internet and those who developed it.

Thank you to all the people who responded to my question instead of calling me some sort of an "agent". I am on a personal quest for truth. I am not set on a straight path, there will be some things that I believe in and find out are wrong. I am trying to do my own research and challenge the opposition to see if I can find facts that I did not stumble upon in my own research.


I am also not against a global government. In school we learn that globalization is the FUTURE. Globalization has more pros than cons when I weigh them out. I think alot of people are set in their ways and fear a one world government because they can't comprehend it and are afraid of the IDEA of CHANGE.

I am open to debate!

If you can convince me otherwise I will be more than thankful.

I don't think you are an agent. I think you are a young person, who simply has not had enough experience in the world to realize yet, that most of what you "learn" ranges from opinions of people who are not actually qualified to have outright deception (read: conspiracy) by those who stand to make a lot of money and/or gather a lot of power, if people believe them.

I had to laugh when you mentioned that in school you learned "...that globalization is the FUTURE!" I "learned" that in school too. And I doubt anyone was any more dismayed that I was, when I finally realized, after years and years and years of having the real evidence of it shoved up my a$$, that most of what I was taught in school and was raised to believe is simply false.

Since you are on a personal quest for truth, I recommend you begin by reading Hayek's The Road To Serfdom. That's a good starting point. Then maybe anything by Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams. Eventually, after absorbing something from Austrian Economics, you will be ready to read about Games Theory, Systems Theory, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and a number of other studies that are germane.

I know you just can't believe right now, that almost everything you've ever been told about people, politics, and money is a lie. That's almost too horrible to even contemplate, isn't it? But.....if you could.....and you thought about all the obviously stupid things that happen all the time....oil powerful people pissing away their careers to get laid....scientists getting caught faking data.....all these supposedly smart people screwing up in ways that even a high school kid ought to be able to figure out without any trouble.....

AND realize that these people are running the world?!!! Are they that stupid? Or would it make more sense somehow, if perhaps they are doing it on purpose? I'm not saying to think deeply about that now. It's that keeping it in the back of your mind, even as you start to find the truth in your own way...the one that feels right to you... going by your inherent gut instincts...paying attention to how things resonate or clash....will ultimately serve you better as you read that Hayek.

Stay well.

PS Many on this website have felt similarly to you for many years, in our past. Sadly, the world is much more complex and cynical than would allow us to stay in that happy place. I wish it were different. But, it isn't.
