This is already covered under the 1st's "Freedom Of Assembly" clause.
The ONLY time whereas this can be amended is either by a jury of one's peers, your employer or a website.
The internet as we know it today will be the same internet tommorrow.
Posted by me in another thread :
The United States Federal Government's Official Stance pertaining to the Internet and the content of the world wide web is that as long as there is no
issue that is containable by any group of Mods and Admins of any website anywhere under the legal jurisdiction of The 43 States, 7 Commonwealths, 7
Territories that comprise of The United States Of America the promise to the people is that as long as it is containable and does not present itself
to be a threat to either the operation, management and organization of the Govt that the United States will not intervene upon any internet webiste
anywhere under it's direct jurisdiction only if said website promotes child pornography, religious extremitism, racial hate propaganda, murder for
hire, criminal activity, the avaliblity of downloadable copyrighted material (music, movies, tv), anti Govt actions can Govt get involved and pass
laws restricting and forbidding some from accessing the internet if they are an immediate danger to not only themselves but to others as well. However
a recent expansion to The 1st Amendment was that everyone has the right to accurate and free information and right to use the internet as that was
recently added to The Constitution so that it can co exist in this new digital age as only a jury of one's peers can amend this to prohibit a person
from accessing the internet.
In short, if you are able to keep your webiste in cheque in accordance with all laws that the Govt will not come knocking down your site's front door
as Govt is better equipped to chase down threats against the nation herself then to spend precious and valuable resources policing websites.. Only if
it threatens either the social structure, Govt structure or other nations itself the Govt will intervene. This protocol and policy is the policy
currently pertaining to matters like this. Basically if your website spirals out of your control the Govt can step in to restore order but would
rather leave it to the individual sites to set, enforce and police thier own websites and allows each to introduce, adopt, modify and amend it's own
terms of service orders and reserves full authourity to decree punishments however it sees fit. The site owner however must comply with any and all
requests made to it by any law enforcement agency on the planet and orders the website itself to surrender any user activity history as well to law
This section of the ATS Terms & Condtions specifies exactly what I'm reffering to :
.6a) Disclosure: The Above Network, LLC also reserves the right to disclose any known personal information when required by law or in the good-faith
belief that such action is necessary to conform to the law or comply with a legal process served on The Above Network, LLC, protect and defend the
rights or property of the The Above Network, LLC domains, or visitors to these domains, identify persons who may be violating the law, the legal
notice, or the rights of third parties, and cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities
There is a thinking out there that since the internet is bigger and larger then any particular person or nation on Earth that no nation has the
authourity to restrict the internet. Look at China's recent pullback when PRC's people finally got sick of internet censorship. It had no choice but
to let it go. Hence why the internet is bigger then governments but is no way, shape or sense bigger then any member of the Holy Family.
As long as the grassroots is allowed to flourish and blossom this idea of restricted web will not take hold.
