I stated earlier how they could use the internet to attack us. Go back and read what I first posted here. And that's just one way. I hesitate to mention other methods for fear they too could one day be used against us.

And again, as I already mentioned once before here too, go read your internet service provider agreement. You'll see that within it contains kill provisions already, which you obviously agreed to when you contracted with them to get onto the internet. Why did you agree to that? They can boot you off any time you break any of their rules. If your government ever goes rogue on you, they can boot you off simply for engaging in illegal activity, which would include the overthrow of our government. You've ready agreed to a kill switch, so NAH!

congratualations you worked in IT your whole life - so has most of China, Iindia and anywhere else with access to telecommunications that are searching for work.. you are nothing special.

Now since you work in IT I will talk to you on your level. A computer that cannot find a DNS is still connected to the internet - an IP can still be used to connect to the computer.
You can pull DNS server's all you like, people still have private networks that are networked via IP and you really think some 1337 h4x0r in russia would stand by and let you take his net away from him? they would create virii overnight that travel by scanning whole IP ranges and setup their own DNS that they control (now look what youve done!). Spectre said it perfectly their are too many layer's - the internet is like an onion layer after the layer and the more you peel back the more it will make you cry.

Now that peer to peer technology is everywhere DNS really is not much of an issue to those in the know - torrents have huge lists of other peers IP's how long do you think it would be before some russian guru came out with virri that grab those IP addresses and use them to pass around the information - if i can think of it they have already got them so they wouldnt even need to hit compile. The people will find way's around anything you or any governement can create... why do you think computer virii are still around, for every patch you make they make a patch for your patch.

Infact Im just going to ignore this thread as you have just proved my point by saying you could take down the 'majority of the internet' - my point being there is no possible way to kill the internet, you can hurt it as much as you like but it will heal and it will come back angry.

That is not good in a time of chaos. Sometimes the internet rumors get out of hand and in a national emergency we would all need to work together, not conjure up lies on the internet.

Am I the only person on this website that agrees with the killswitch??

Not to mention it will prevent from being attacked if the enemy has their weapons hooked up with the internet.

Here is a link to the article

I'm going to have to STRONGLY disagree with you on killing the net sir. You mean to tell me you put SO MUCH FAITH into being herded and kept in the dark? WHAT???!!! Not to sling mud, but would you happen to be a troll from Europe or something? Because that's not how it's done here in this country, we came to that consensus since back when by leaving the net as is for the most part. We Americans are FAR too ingenious in the end to even allow something like that to happen in the first place. If there are a large amount of psychopaths on the net, do you know what you do? Identify them and keep away. Killing the internet during an emergency would be like slitting your wrist with Occam's Razor.

The only way shutting off the net would be beneficial in any case is if we humans firmly established a natural global telepathy, which I personally think is starting to peak it's face into our reality to be honest.

Sir, in my humble opinion, I believe you are one of those psychopaths you speak of, not to mention what I call a fear junkie.

Don't hide from your problems like a beta, go out, get alpha, and solve it that way.

If they kill the internet then they might as well sign their death warrant because its the last thing that is working in their favor. Imagine all the terrible frustration people are feeling and no where to vent..........

Wow stupid. So what if people on this site are not exactly the most intelligent... They all congregate here luckily and no one with any common sense believe all their fear mongering. It's well within these peoples rights to discuss topics or spread 'dis-info'. the vast majority do not believe all the idiotic conspiracies spread around here. A kill switch could be used to suppress information and news from legitimate sources other than the crazy, web bot worshiping people on this site.

Why on this earth would you want to give the last bastion of free speech, thoughts, and ideas to a government official.

Of any nation!

This is one are where the people will always win, and we need to save this freedom as long as we possibly can.

in my hoest opinion no president should be given the kill switch for the fact that it gives one single person In our government way too much power. And also i would like to state that obama should be impeached or have the americans forgotten that that solution is the best way to get a pos president out of office thank you -ahellion247365

"Give Obama the Switch don't be a b^tch"

With our ever growing wired society many families use the internet far more than letters of phone calls .

The kill switch has many draw backs . And I totally absolutely disagree with you on the kill switch .

reasons against kill switch

1 Governmental control of ALL news news sources will get information from each other on the web . News would then be only delivered to the news agencies threw governmental APPROVED routes . Which is what they want you to hear .

2 Many businesses get most of their income from credit cards 70 % now your kill switch in a time of crisis will shut down 70% of the commerce in the US and who knows how much around the globe .

3 Banks use the internet to check deposits and checks . Effectively shutting down the banking system .

4 many people pay bills online do their banking online this will freeze asset of untold millions of Americans and cripple business and utility companies .

5 Those who get their news primarily from the web they will be left in the dark.

6 those people who use the net for interacting with friends and relatives will be SOL .

7 The great amount of people who use the internet for contacting people will be forced to use the phones or letters during a crisis .

8 During other disasters the phone lines were totally clogged the use of the internet eased families worry since they had another avenue to contact loved ones with this kill switch all the relief the net brought will be dumped back to clogged phone lines .

9 If the internet is still in place in a time of crisis BB boards could be set up to display living or dead from a crisis , citizens relief organizations could easily talk with each other for the best help . The net could and has helped coordinate donations set up of Ham radio systems and deliver early warnings of newer threats.

10 a simple flick of a switch could effectively shut down this country if we are attacked we need to get moving to help repair rebuild or defend not close up shop and wait for big brother to tell us what to do and tell us what the news is .

11 A standard military tactic is to cut communications of a opponent there by causing confusion and panic in the general population and the military so if we are attacked we cut our own lines of communications ? IS this bill for the kill switch for us or to help an attack on us . If the net was up and running and we were attacked we could generate a 150m man army from average citizens in the span of 1/2 a day who would be willing to defend the USA if attacked this seems more for the attacking army than for us defending .

for the kill switch

1 If it was a virus based attack on our computer systems that was destroying systems and data it could be a good thing .

2 If you are a totalitarian leaning individual WHOOPEE a dream HAS COME TRUE killing the first amendment and AND GIVING ME ALL THE POWER TO SAY AND DO WHAT I WANT HIP HIP HOORAY

I feel support for this bill is against the VERY CORE of our Government
and against the core of our freedoms

All considered

Here is what hurricaine katrina did to the internet and the results of not having internet

posted on Jun, 19 2010 @ 12:27 PM
In an ocean of ignorance & stupidity, this idea... is the bermuda triangle...

You cannot simply shut off communication in a time of chaos. There would not only be an upheaval of rage towards the govt for keeping families from contacting eachother, since most phone systems are now VOIP (Internet Based), but you would only be making the rumors worse.

When I read an article on the internet, I take it with a grain of salt. But hearing it from a person, usually gives it an auspicious aura of truth & or mystery.

Granted, some internet users are not the brightest crayon in the coloring box, and will believe me if I posted that tommorow the world was ending, but most users are reliably intelligent users and regardless of falsifiers that might try to spread lies, they will be able to tell the truth when they put 1 and 2 together.

This idea disgusts me and is from the same philosiphy that has kept this country in the **** of darkness it's learned to live in: "What the govt does is for the good of the people".... Never heard or seen such a beautifully formed peice of bull s*** on my lawn.

As stated in my previous posts it is not possible to have a kill switch for the internet because of it's design.

NOW KEEP READING: America can go out of it's way to force it's own companies to put this kill system inplace - which would be an epic battle in itself.
Even if it got away with that It America CANNOT and I REPEAT CANNOT force the rest of the world's companies to put these systems inplace.

You really think any country will allow companies operating in its borders to have kill switches that America can flick? HA! THINK ABOUT IT!
This bill is written by American idiots that don't even know what they are talking about... kill the internet shesh gimmie a break!

ITS CALLED WORLD WIDE WEB FOR A REASON... if they want to shut down their little chunk of the net - let them shoot themself in the foot... but they won't AND ILL TELL YOU WHY...


which is happens to be everything to America. Simply aint gonna happen

I don't see how a kill switch would help, it is just a means to control the masses.

OP, you are obviously a troll or something worse.

No ATS member in their right mind would post something so incredibly stupid and ignorant as you did.

Obama MUST have an internet kill switch?

The internet is the last bastion of free speech and thought, for better or worse and that must be defended from people like you.

KILLING THE INTERNET, would lite the fuse to mass riots in the streets, and gangs of folks out looking to get even with the bankers. Is that really what TPTB want to happen?

Interesting, I wonder what would happen, that might make a good movie.

I would prolly have to get up and go do my dishes, I bet here would be a baby boom too.
