When that shitty little policy was announced over here, the first thought that entered my head was "I can't believe Australia didn't do it first".

Everyone knows that once the technology is in place there is no way that they or a later government will be able to indefinitely resist unilaterally blocking more content, and they won't even have to tell us about it.

What connections out of Australia? They simulate the rest of the Internet in Darwin. We're all AI and paid employees.

Well all that means is that everyone will have to opt in if they want to do anything useful online, since what they class as "porn" is on any site that allows user generated content. Same with here in the UK. It's a bullshit act made by politicians who don't know how the internet works.

Also, hypocrisy.

Nothing, except the fear of negative reactions and the resulting loss of votes, but that probably won't stop them. Especially if they do it gradually where people won't notice until it's too late.

Maybe then people would have to circumvent the restrictions or come up with a new alternative to the internet.

I think I'll sell people porn. Make a bit of money.

And since GCHQ is no doubt monitoring me, yes, I know I've said this before and yes, I'm still joking.

Every time I see one of those "10 hours of..." videos on YouTube, the top comment is

"Let's reupload this as 'Kiddybutts Uncensored 5' so the CIA have to watch the whole thing"

Am I the only one who thinks the Coalitions parental leave scheme is totally fucked. It's like they're essentially saying "Rich babies are worth more than poor babies".

No, you've got it totally wrong! They're saying "Rich mothers are worth more than poor mothers."

As far as any government is concerned, they are. Indeed, economically they are too. Depends if you measure the value of life using statistics or as any sane person would.

They're not more valuable when they're not working. And that's what a parental leave scheme covers.

Ah but they are because they're still putting more money into the economy through buying higher quality foodstuffs for instance. Especially if they're using money from their savings which would otherwise be taken out of the circular cash flow.
