I am completely appalled at the BBC's one-sided coverage of this issue.
They are actively trying to link the Darkweb to child porn, crime, drugs, negative forms of 'anarchism' and lots of other bad things. This article is
part of a wider campaign against the DarkWeb and Bitcoins in particular.
The Bitcoin currency is being demonised by governments and financial institutions all over the world, simply because they can't control it - which is
why 'normal' people wish to use it. It's fair, limited, and acts as currency SHOULD DO. There is no process of fractional decimalisation, inflation,
or monetary policy manipulation. It removes market distortions, and allows capitalism to function as it is supposed to. Not to mention it is
completely untraceable and anonymous - just as currency should be.
As for the demonisation of the DarkWeb - the British government, along with many, many others seek to control and 'define' the internet so that it can
be controlled, taxed and manipulated. The Dark Web prevents this. The BBC can continue down the path it appears to be following of being a
corporatocracy stooge - but there will be consequences.
Already, MORI polls and other public surveys are showing that people now understand the BBC to be corrupt and spreading falsehoods. The internet
community will not stand for their gutless corruption, and neither should we. Freedom of speech is sacrosanct. But actively spreading lies in the
name of impartial journalism is easily understood as corruption.
What say you ATS? Are you pro or anti DarkWeb?
Also, what involvement is ATS having in participating with and defending the DarkWeb projects out there? I should hope that as a bastion of
free-speech the owners of ATS would be on-side with the DarkWeb community at large...
I really think this is a massive issue, and something that could potentially shake the foundations of society as we know it.... should it be allowed
to propagate that is...
