US Senators call for universal Internet filtering | Press Esc
PressEsc tells us that –
US senators today made a bipartisan call for the universal implementation of filtering and monitoring technologies on the Internet in order to protect children at the end of a Senate hearing for which civil liberties groups were not invited.
Commerce Committee Chairman Daniel K. Inouye (D-Hawaii) and Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee Vice Chairman Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) both argued that Internet was a dangerous place where parents alone will not be able to protect their children.
Right. So are schools. And what’s even worse, kids can pick up all sorts of funny ideas at school. Not to mention meeting members of the opposite sex, or – heaven forbid – of the same sex. Burn them all!
I prefer the Chinese model. At least they’re honest and upfront about it.
