The Gillard regime has been trying to censor the media and several other groups for a while. Now they have passed Legislation allowing them access to your internet details, to collect and keep Australians' internet records, including their web-browsing history, social media activity and emails.
We can either sit back and watch this Legislation be abused to a point where a Government will have a complete profile on each of us, or we can act now and ensure even if this Gillard regime doesn't reverse it, the Coalition is left with no doubt we do not want it and we expect them to reverse it if they win the next election.
The book 1984 had the administration divided among four Ministries:
the Ministry of Truth, which deals with news, entertainment, education and fine arts,
the Ministry of Love which maintains law and order,
the Ministry of Peace which wages war and the
Ministry of Plenty which handles economic affairs.
The very vocabulary of the people was under Party Control; a system called “newspeak” was encouraged. One of the most dreaded words in the arsenal of Newspeak was the most heinous offence according to the Party – that of “thoughtcrime” which was sure to be punished by the Thought police.
The slogans of Newspeak are “War is Peace” Freedom is Slavery” and “Ignorance is Strength.”
LET'S NOT HAVE THIS HAPPEN FOR REAL.
We the people of Australia condemn and call on the Commonwealth to abolish the Government's revised Legislation through the Cybercrime Legislation Amendment Bill 2011.
This Bill is regarded as a total invasion of privacy and is a censorship tool to prevent people's opinion being heard online, and to muzzle bloggers from producing informative blogs
