The Western world, from Australia to the United States, UK and parts of Europe, are moving in a unified front toward dictatorial Internet censorship. Australia has led the way, despite outcry from its populace, by "filtering" out certain banned content. In the United States, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, in continuing his family's tradition of oppressing free humanity, has pushed forward Cybersecurity legislation that has already passed the House. He has done so in the name of warding off ghastly cyber "attackers" conceivably fronting for al Qaeda while ushering in a means to restrict free speech and expression online for the general population.

With Obama's support, most of the developed world has accepted plans for government-approved online activity and Pentagon-monitored internet traffic. The U.S. and UK are facilitating the hijacking of what has, until now, been a highly-democratic Internet. Overall, it has been a technological God-send for bringing together communication and strongly expressing thought outside of the mainstream information available on television and in print.

Now, people are being forced onto the corporate-dominated Internet2 - once again, in the name of "security." (Internet) Freedom sacrificed at the same false alter of (Internet) Security. Independent blogs, news sites and online businesses will all be financially disadvantaged by access fees not demanded of dominant entities. What is today outside the 'norm' but well within free speech will tomorrow be evaluated by politically-correct criteria that will be used to identify sites to block and users to deny access.

Already, referrals to sites like and are being denied not only in Australia, but in places like New Zealand - who have not adopted the same policies, but do share ISPs who have ordered a block. All across the world, wherever internet "filtering" and outright censorship has been phased in - via libraries, businesses, airports, and so forth, sites that are critical of government are consistently blocked first. This has been true not only of Alex Jones' several websites, but also of sites like Wikileaks, Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Cryptome and etc, etc. The common theme is not operating outside of law or of speaking in extremities, but challenging the power establishment through distribution of information and/or shedding light on its otherwise little known unscrupulous activities.

Internet Censorship Alert! Alex Jones Exposes Agenda to Blacklist Dissenting Sites

Censorship Bills in UK, US, Australia Aim to Block "Undesirable" Websites

Frightening Taste of Internet Censorship as Major Free Speech Websites Blocked has already been censored for two years in most places in China. Myspace "accidentally" deleted my Sheeple Revolt site thrice now, and put in their "phishing keywords." This coordinated effort to shut down the free web is an incredibly important issue, and I hope people send this article out to your email lists, facebooks, twitters, inform your family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers, the internet is really the last remaining bastion of free information we have. Don't let it die with a whimper. If your provider ever starts censoring anti-establishment websites, you must complain and threaten to change services until they stand up for the free web.
