Another Reason Australia Sucks

  1. True. Fight for every right you have now, because it is much easier to lose them then to get them back.
     
  2. Yeh except Australia has always had retarded censorship. The #$%#ed thing is this isn't a K Rudd thing, the liberals had more or less the same policy before the election last year. Bunch of ****s. Atleast in America the Christian right still stand up for freedom of speech/expression with the whole: "I don't agree what you say but I'll defend your right to say it." shit. Atleast that's what I've gathered from you guys. Correct me if I'm wrong or whatever though.
     
  3. the rarity of common sense in the world doesn't negate his point.

    you dont give a shit because if they block things like child porn, euthanasia and anorexia websites... and fair enough, most people don't. but your logic for why it's okay because it doesn't have any impact on YOU is pretty crap, because what if down the road Australia decides to block all pornography? would you still not give a shit? and who's to say where they'd theoretically draw the line at that point? what if they started selectively blocking Wikipedia entries that spoke negatively of the administration/party in power, is that ok too?
     
  4. You obviously don't live in Melbourne.
     
  5. i don't think anything will happen. made no mention of what the liberals or minor/independent senators think either, just some loony christian group. the howard government proposed something similar a year or two ago and it never took off.

    this kind of move really chaps my ass though.
     
  6. They've changed. Now it's "If you don't believe everything we do, and support us, you're anti-American and unpatriotic."
