You can only access certain sites which would be decided by your ISP. This is ridiculous. Watch this video:
I'm not even going to watch the video, because I already know thats not going to happen.
People's lives and jobs depend on the internet, and pretty soon everyone's is going to.
Well I too believe that the video is just a way to get attention and is no fact. But why do people have to make such videos.
They make them for the very reason it's now the topic of a forum thread; to reach as many people as possible. Pretty soon you have a much bigger segment of people considering the possibilities.. and then we also know who will receive the blame! It's a crazy, paranoid world.
They stole radio and television and they will steal the Internet. You all are going to have to create an alternative.
I can't watch the video because at my current access speed it would take about 3 days to download. What's in it?
If it's site restrictions they are already happening. I am sick of going to sites where I am not allowed to view. So far, those have included youtube videos and certain news sites.
Even if this does happen, which I'm sure it wont we will end up like China and other countires similar to it. People who are Internet savvy will get round the blocks.
Here's Google's take on it:

Just a thought...but isn't the world supposed to end in 2012? So wouldn't the whole Internet thing be moot?
This seems to be the latest popular conspiracy theory of the reclusive and highly paranoid American underground.
I would perhaps suggest that those reclusive weirdos would be happier if we could all go back to living in caves and tunnels, all of this communication must be freaking them out.
To me the internet becoming extinct means this:
I lose my job, I have to get another one. That is all. Just like a bartender finding out that his bar is closing down.
It wouldn't kill me, it would probably make me a bit hungry for a while, the world adjusts, I get more fresh air, probably interact more socially, I throw myself into something different.
A couple of years of adjustment, probably healthier as a result. And for that reason this particular conspiracy theory could never scare me, in fact I am quite attracted to the idea.
I'm sure it does upset certain segments of even the american population. But I don't think those kind of people have as much power as they think they do, and what they have got is forever dwindling (largely due to the internet.)
As long as the internet is good for business, it'll stay open is my guess.

Is Internet access becoming important enough that it should be a public utility?Would we better off to remove the profit motive or would the danger of political abuse be too great? The United Nations has said that blocking Internet access is a violation of international law; is it that...
