Say no to Big Brother plan for Internet

"Notwithstanding the internet remarkable potential, there are dark clouds on the horizon. There are some who see a very different Internet. Theirs is an Internet with ubiquitous surveillance featuring real-time capabilities to monitor online activities. It is an Internet that views third party applications such as Vonage's Voice-over-IP service as parasitic. It is an Internet in which virtually all content should come at a price, even when that content has been made freely available. It is an Internet that would seek to cut off subscriber access based on mere allegations of wrongdoing, without due process or oversight from a judge or jury.
This disturbing vision of the Internet is not fantasy. It is based on real policy proposals being considered by the Canadian government today. "

Socialist governments never cease to amaze me with their ability to find new ways to get inside of the lives of their "subjects"!!! Yes I say subject rather than citizens because, well that is a much better description. To be subjected to constant government meddling is the antithesis of a free life.
