Good luck with that.

Is that how terrorists work? "Oh I must discuss my evil plans on open forums, Facebook and Twitter"

Its not about hiding what you get up to its about people who think they are better than you deciding what you can read. A lot of people educate themselves by looking stuff up on the internet as opposed to reading books these days. Unfortunately people rely on newspars for the facts. Though we all know its selevtive reporting.

As a kid, i had a library card and used to love going to the library. (especially for albums!)
On Tuesdays, the mobile library used to come around at 7pm and can remember waiting one day, in the snow for it to come... and it did!

Memories! :)

not only selective reporting but also in many cases downright lies.

What also scares the Elite is that much of what was only available in books ( and often required you ordering it from the library and it taking weeks to get in stock ) is now avilable via a few mouse clicks on the internet.

this means it's much easier for the masses to educate themselves and an educated populace is dangerous to the elite

It's no surprise they are going down this route. People being able to get info that isn't government approved scares the shit out of them. While in opposition the Tories opposed all this stuff. As soon as they got in they carried on where Labour left off.

Well you should.

It's not up to the government to do your thinking for you. It's not up to the government to decide what 'news' you're allowed to see. It's not up to the government to decide what you are allowed to say.

We are supposed to be living in a free country.

Freedom of speech and the right to privacy are what this country was built on. We will become another North Korea where the government will install CCTV in your home to check whether you have a framed portrait of Kim Jong-May above the mantelpiece and whether you pray to her when you wake up.



Yup. It's already illegal to research certain aspects of history in many European countries. Establishment is trying to increase hate speech laws to include criticism of Israel and decrease the freedom of the internet on the back of "Terrorism"

We can't let things slide into a situation is it was in theUSSR, Stasi East Germany or North Korea
