now, i'm not saying it cannot happen. all i'm saying is that it may happen if it'll further their own agenda. right now, it certainly would not. but if - and that's imho just a matter of time - TSHTF, something big happens and people all over the world will have to face new reality, then they may 'shutdown the grid' to try to slow down the transition, to keep people divided and controlled via local martial law enforcement, because the last thing they would want in such scenario, is people around the world talking to each other, sharing ideas and coordinating efforts to bring the change.

How can you make the internet just disappear though. It's a web, you break a few lines and yet there's still tons of other lines linking to each other. The only way to get rid of it would be to see some global economic and power collapse. But even then there would be some sparse internet, nothing like now but something perhaps like off the show Revolution where some people who still had some power were able to talk online.

The internet will never disappear.

It is our largest data mine, why would we pull the plug?

Regulate? Control? Censor? Yes, yes, yes.

But pull the plug? LoL this thing is doing 99.99 repeating of our work!

Why would we shut it down?

I'm sure they will pull it, but it won't matter. Mubarak pulled it in egypt but it didn't stop him being booted out. The revolution still went on because people came out from behind their computer screens and into the streets. If anything it just made people more pissed off and likely to protest.

That, my friend, is exactly my point. It would cause too much chaos.

We control google. We control yahoo. We control ever major net outlet on the globe.

We'll simply take a little away at a time, but it will never be gone.

Just like we did in the real world. Just a smig here. A dap there. Your freedoms, forgotten, negelected.

In the end, people won't remember what they should have the right to.

They'll think they're free because we present the illusion of freedom while in reality, there is no such thing as privacy.

Privacy is a corner stone of freedom. One that, in the modern age, is easily forgotten to the convience of technology.

And so we win. Because comfortable slaves trump dissatisfied citizens everytime.

History speaks the truth, but the revolution always has a season.

This harvest is prepared for though.

They'll shut it down, or try to, when they're ready to make their move. No sooner.

They'll do it to stop or slow our communication with each other. So we can't coordinate and let each other know what they're doing and where the trains are taking people...

The most logical series of events that would transpire in a way would be a large scale solar/human induced solar flare/cme, of which the government and a lot of private companies have emp protection on a lot of their hardware.

So at best the civilian hardware would be knocked back a century or 2...and even still that would only affect us being able to use the internet because we wouldn't have a working phone, computer etc...

The point being they would most likely filter out extremist websites and stop torrents like previous posters mentioned.

This point has already been reiterated but the internet will not be shut off, it will simply be regulated to suit the people in power.

I had a dream that the internet was gone prior to a missile being launched. I'm pretty sure if something big is about to go down, the internet will be pulled so that no one can communicate.

I agree. Until then, they will keep it on because it distracts the masses.

I made a mistake coming here, I read the title as "Internet WILL dissapear... PROOF!!!"

Thread turns out to be just a rant. Yeah, the US government will just shut down the internet globally so that they can control us from bunkers with CCTV and drones... Who is the government? Who would make the decision? Who would be informed? How do they keep a conspiracy like this from being leaked.

I agree people should excpect the internet to be disrupted one day, probably by an accident, or perhaps a terrorist attack. I'm excpecting there to be a large cyberattack one day, but I doubt it will take down the internet. I also think people should excpect the economy to collapse etc.

I just think its more likely WWIII will begin before the internet goes down. And the world doesn't seem to be heading towards a global war at the moment.

People communicate via a lot more ways than the internet. If the internet is the only way of communication you can think of you really need to go outside. There are mobile phones, landlines, ham radios, private networks, satellite communications...

Stopping the internet wont be simple either, considering the number of ways you can connect to the internet, including fibre, dialup, phone towers, satellite, etc.

Governments in other parts of the world have 'shut off' the internet, twitter, facebook, etc during times when there has been unrest or government actions that they didn't want the people to be able to talk about. Iran does it all the time. I can see TPTB shutting it down or severely restricting it as they deem necessary in order to make sure that the people can't communicate with each other.

Shutting down the net may already be impossible. People's minds are opening, they are able to see that what we are told doesn't exist as actual reality....if they want to see the truth that is. Our Ego and desires blind most of us to the truth. If things interfere with what we perceive as good because our lifestyle is dependent on it than we ignore it. This is not new, we have been doing it for a long time. The net allows us to research and meet with people who have the same beliefs and interests to reinforce our beliefs and our present knowledge. I try to look at most things from all angles, comparing them to the big picture. I have a depersonalization disorder though, so don't listen to me. What I do is to check on whether perception of the time is truth, but I find that this relationship is twisted with partial truth intermingled in societies. What can be done to fix this, I don't know. We have built a box around ourselves. How do we get rid of this box? Getting the second line to complete the cross works. Either suffering or learning humility gets us there. Can medication and Yoga do it? I don't know, but I know if I tried to bend in those yoga positions I definitely would suffer.

I think the businesses talked the government into letting the internet go as a cheap advertising method. I think they were wrong, the businesses were fooled into believing this is true. I research things on the net but I buy from who I want to buy knowing half the positive crap said about the product on the net is probably a lie. I think that the net has hurt the businesses that originally backed it's creation. Maybe in some cases it has allowed some businesses to sell directly to the people instead of through retail and that is good.

Is the net good for us? For some with open minds it is but for the majority it is a tool to reinforce the beliefs they hold, further polarizing our societies. Unless a person examines both sides of the story, they just become worse human beings and most often start to interfere with the rights of those who do not hold their beliefs. People thought Christianity caused a lot of wars, wait...the net will cause the splitting up of countries.

There is no "PTB", so you don't need to worry about what you posted.

I doubt this will happen , this is deeply embedded in today's society , used by companies , military and civilian to gather information.

imagine the 1900's and all the Library's are set on fire because the government doesnt want people reading or getting smart and educated.

This leads me to a question , Why does a Government only deserve the internet ??

Because besides spying on ppl and using this information to create illegal kill lists is defenatly not the way internet should be used.

Because besides all the BS on the net , the porn and snuff movies etc , liveleak , there is material you can learn and educate yourself with.

Again all the apples have to go , because of a few rotten , im a young man , but that story is getting old.

Typical human nature , if we cant control it it must go.



The only way i see the internet gone is Moments before martial law is implemented , because the people will be blind and deaf without it.

The internet isn't going anywhere. Neither is cell phone coverage. They are a vital part of our civilization that would devastate any country that relies on them. Maybe we could recover over time but think about every service and industry that absolutely need it them at this point.

For one, the company I work for is 100% web based. Not that my company closing would end the USA by any stretch but think of all of the companies that that could (taken as a whole). Wall Street - dead in the water. Modern banking - dead in the water. Trucking companies - dead in the water. Emergency services - mostly dead in the water. Etc and so on. It would be pretty bad.

The time it would take for people to get up and running in the old fashioned "pen & paper" way would take forever...considering most operations don't have the man power and hardware to do so at this point.

People unwillingly AND willingly give out information every time they are active on the web, why would any PTB want to remove this feast of information?

It's like the ultimate surveillance op and we feed it info in our billions.

The unprecedented and uncontrollable movement of information over transnational borders is a concern for governments all over the world. It enables communication between terrorist networks, allows criminals - particularly financial criminals - to operate more freely and it is also a concern due to the potential leaking and sharing of classified information, as we have seen with wikileaks.

However, the claim that they will attempt to pull the plug is idiotic in my opinion. The internet is today the central focus of much of the worlds business activity. It has enabled a more globalized society and those with the resources and know-how have been able to profit from its existence. It is far more of an asset than a detriment.

Additionally, if the internet were to be somehow (I don't even know how it would be done) disbanded, then I am sure alternate data-sharing frameworks would quickly replace it, and they would likely be far more difficult to control and regulate. Most people may not use them, but the hard-core that world governments are concerned with, would. The internet provides them with some limited degree of oversight and the ability to regulate their movements, communications and transactions. Why would they eliminate such an intelligence asset?

Lastly, the perceived protest movements and data sharing is far less empowering than you believe. Most influential protest movements continue to be formed at the grassroots of society and the reason the internet cannot replace that is because (a) a physical presence continues to be far more influential, and (b) external peoples - people not located where the movement is attempting to bring about change - do not exert much influence within that area.

I suppose there is bit different situation in US but here in Central Europe exists community networks via 2.4/5.2GHz WIFI. Average distance between villages is 2.5 Km so with proper equipment it is doable even on 2.4GHz. 10 or 64 GHz connections are not uncommon now meaning it is quite often fitted on some residential house. It will take us few weeks but we will manage some emergency connection (say 16 Kbit/s) for almost everybody with existing infrastructure even if backbones and landlines are totally dead. I large cities the situation will be bad but still manageable because Facebook and Youtube will be gone. At least 1/2 of IT technicians are truth seekers, often without kids ... they will form underground movement rather quickly if theirs packet pet is crippled by PTB.

I doubt seriously that TPTB will pull the plug, or hit the "Kill Switch" on the Internet because of it's importance to the control grid lock down. Without the world wide web (www./666) the Mark of the Beast would be only half effective.
Although, I do believe that if one does not get the internet I.D. which is his (AC) number or the RFID chip and/or invisible tatoo, DOS will be the rule of the day for anyone not in compliance. The choice of no food, no money (SDR/special drawing rights), no medical (Obamacare), and no job will finally draw the red line in the sand for many.
May GOD help us all!
