Message to Stephen (I’m morally and intellectually superior to to Australian internet users) Conroy. We already have laws in place in this country preventing the possession or viewing of child pornography, as well as other materials found objectionable by the vast majority of Australians.
Filtering objectionable web pages will not stop those wishing to view such materials from obtaining them. These individuals are ALREADY committed to breaking the law when they access and view such materials over the internet or elsewhere. Filtering objectionable web pages will not miraculously make these criminals more law-abiding citizens.
Stephen, you are an idiot. Please admit this to yourself, resign from official office, and move to another country (anywhere would be fine) where the internet is already filtered. The Australian people will not miss you.
You can help us (and help yourself)
Small and medium businesses and startups have never needed credible, independent journalism and information more than now.
That’s our job at SmartCompany: to keep you informed with the news, interviews and analysis you need to manage your way through this unprecedented crisis.
Now, there’s a way you can help us keep doing this: by becoming a SmartCompany supporter.
Even a small contribution will help us to keep doing the journalism that keeps Australia’s entrepreneurs informed.
