Making it worse

2013-07-22 15:14:31.409529+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

U.K. government strong-arming ISPs on filtering and intercept technologies, and UK Prime Minister David Cameron announces that internet providers will "block porn" by default. Households will have to ask to actually get an internet connection.

In addition, the prime minister said possessing online pornography depicting rape would become illegal in England and Wales - in line with Scotland.

Which is the context for RT linkshund ‏@linkshund

Weird how we're criminalising consensual sex being portrayed as rape, when actually the major cultural problem is the opposite way round.

It should be noted that David Cameron cares about protecting children so much that he left his 8 year old daughter behind in a pub.

The UK porn filter isn't about porn. Result is a proactive Internet filter, and a list of people who want unfiltered Internet. Oppressive.
