Another Attack On The Internet Coming From Bushies and The Religious Right
Now they want to cancel the internet and re-do it. I say no to that idea.
We do not know what we are going to get. My guess is that a new internet will be much closer to the kind of internet the Chinese have. GWB has already tried to do away with the internet under the guise of controlling porn. He doesn't care about porn. His staunchest supporter is Rupert Murdoch who is the biggest carrier of porn in the US and maybe the world. Despite that fact all the right wingers think that Fox News is the best because Murdoch constantly spouts their agenda. Were the religious right, including the Catholic Church, my church, such true conservatives they would stop Murdoch from carrying porn or at least confront him about it and in public. But porn is such a huge business that no one on the right says anything about Murdoch's porn.
Another guise for exercising rigid control and giving us less access to the internet and information over the internet will be GWB et.al. using the national security argument/ploy. GWB has 21 months to go in office and the fight is only the beginning. Will he succeed, No I do not think so and I will bend every effort to make sure that he and the religious right wingnuts do not succeed.
Also rather than cancelling the internet there are other ways to stop porn on the internet that are very simple to do. No, Bush and the republicans want to end the internet so they can produce a much more highly controlled and profitable internet for their business friends.
As it stands now the internet is 'everymans' greastes democratic institution second only to our now shredded US Constitution. It is a well accepted fact that knowledge in the hands of the general population leads to a nore enlightened populace and an enlightened populace makes the best decisions at voting time.
But Bush and the Catholic Church want to keep us all ignorant and poor. It is a clear sociological fact that such a populace is much easier to control. The Catholic Church has always been about control of it's parishoners and now has extended that belief to a desire to control every american, not just Catholic Americans.
That is where we are headed as long as the Catholic church has so much political power. Scalia in a speech he gave in May, 2000 advocated the end of the rule of law and further advocated the end of democracy in America. Scalia, a very staunch and dedicated Catholic speaks not only for the Catholic Church but also speaks for the Republican Party and the head idiot GWB/Rove/Cheney et.al.
This is another attempt to end democracy in America. The religious right is totally complicit in thisd attempt to end democracy in America just as it does not exist in many other Catholic Countries in Central and South America.
Should Bush and the rethugs succeed at this goal to undemocratise America Canada and Europe will take over the internet and America will further descend into the current age of endarkenment.
Should the Catholic Church succeed in taking the internet away I will not just become a critic of Catholic politics, Instead I will become an enemy of Catholicism. My aunt the nun would not like that; but givcn that she is in heaven, she will not doubt understand.
PRAY FOR PEACE
