Australia is Still Going to Hell

Back in November, Australian Prime Minister John Howard was defeated in elections and replaced by Labor party leader Kevin Rudd. Howard was an odious, warmongering Bush toady, and Rudd vowed to pull Australia's troops out of Iraq. Now new Labor Telecommunications Minister Stephen Conroy wants all internet service providers to provide clean feeds, or ISP filtering, to houses and schools that are free of pornography and inappropriate material. This will be mandatory and Conroy says "Labor makes no apologies to those that argue that any regulation of the internet is like going down the Chinese road." Anyone wanting uncensored access to the internet will have to opt out of the service.

This of course is in the name of "protecting" the children, with Government playing the role of parent for the whole society. This only proves that when you get rid of one set of scumbags by throwing them out of office, you soon find out you've only replaced them with a new set of scumbags. When will we learn that "democracy" is just another name for a political game of musical chairs, with all the players cut from the same cloth, and with the public merely spectators, the perception of the people being in charge only illusion? This is what passes for "freedom." Government is evil and democracy sucks!
