Australia to Censor Internet

This seems like a bad idea.

Here’s Rod Edwards’ take at TechFold:

At heart, I’m a libertarian: I am firm in my belief that the ills that accompany unfettered access to self-expression and communication are outweighed by the benefits – that the abdication of personal responsibility that seems endemic in our society is a call to community action and education – not an invitation to governments to censor and regulate.

Sadly, those of similar mind are under constant attack; for example, Australia has announced that default censorship of the Internet is coming. At issue are the children who’s parents are no longer deemed capable of seeing to their memetic welfare; instead, the entire nation must bear the cost for their inattention.
