Great watch out on the video.
Haha, guess we'll be erecting a firewall for the security of our boarders before any others.
I hope these idiots don't do something stupid...the military themselves could easily avoid this BS by utilizing darknets and new protocols like "Internet2."
Here's a vid on that last thought:
Network World said that it is unlikely that the bill will pass into a law allowing the president to shut down the internet. The bill is basically concerned with national security although it is unclear if only government agencies will be involved in an internet shutdown. Network World said that the job would be too enormous as the internet is not easily controllable. Also the ccomputer trade magazine questioned why the government had not looked into shutting down cell phone technology.
I'm honestly doubtful of it, too.
The Internet is too useful to control and ICANN gets yelled at plenty of times by other countries.
Not to mention we released an aid to China to circumvent their Great Firewall. So...unless Barrack is a hypocrite of grave error, I'm with you on that lindagoffigan.
Lewis Lapham editor of Harper’s magazine, and one of America’s great liberal thinkers, contends that the United States has two governments -- the “permanent” and the “provisional”. “On Politics, Culture And The Media”, keynote address to the Canadian Institute of International Affairs National Foreign Policy conference, in October 1996 -- and I quote Lewis Lapham, “The ‘permanent government’ is the secular oligarchy that comprises the Fortune 500, the big media and entertainment syndicates, the civil and military services, the large research universities and law firms.”
Then he puts his thesis in historical context. “Just as the Catholic Church was the predominant institution in medieval Europe, and the Roman Legion the most efficient manifestation of organized force in the first and second
centuries BC, so also the Transnational Corporation arranges the affairs of the late twentieth and, I might add, early twenty-first century. The American congress and the American president serve at the pleasure of their commercial overlords, all of whom hold firmly to the belief that all government regulation is wicked -- that is, the work of the devil; and that any impulse that runs counter to this manly interest of business is, by definition, soft, effeminate, and liberal.” In other words, the interests of ordinary citizens takes second place to those of the industrial and military elite.
I wouldn't doubt that at all someonewhoknows. A corporate oligarchy.
You know, I can't find the article but during Katrina a bunch of amateur HAM operators rigged up a slow (but working!) internet via their radios.
I forget the exact mechanics, but it helped people stay connected and keep up to date with their families.
Since all of the technology that the internet represents was built by a bunch of electronic geeks with lots of time on their hands without looking for money...I doubt in the end we'll have to worry about big brother too long before something else would come along.
But I have faith that it won't even come to that.
